A New Face in the College of ACES

A New Face in the College of ACES

Dec 10
Laurie Kramer, ACES Associate Dean of Academic Programs

I am delighted to announce that Mr. Cory Ohms is now serving as the new Assistant Dean for Admissions and Records with the College of ACES Office of Academic Programs. He joined the ACES family on December 1. Cory will take responsibility for overseeing our undergraduate admissions process, maintaining student records including degree certification, reviewing student petitions, coordinating summer registration, and supporting departmental advising. He will also represent ACES on select campus committees.

Cory came to us from the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, where he served as the Associate Director of New Student Advising since 2008. Previously, he served as Program Coordinator for the University of Illinois Social Justice and Leadership Education initiative, which gave him the opportunity to teach a section of the Agricultural Education course, Leadership and Social Change.  Cory also has had vast experience in student affairs at the Iowa State University and the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse.

Cory earned his bachelor’s degree in Sociology (with a minor in Biology) and his master’s degree in Education (College Student Development and Administration) from the University of Wisconsin- La Crosse. He tells us that his first passion as an undergraduate was in food microbiology and so a move to ACES at this point in his career is a logical progression.

Cory is well-recognized on campus as an outstanding contributor to student advising, student success, and diversity initiatives.

Please join me in welcoming Cory to his new home in ACES.
