Dr. Xuri Maurice Allen
Director of Admissions/Recruitment

Admissions has been an integral part of my life since 1983, my first year of college!  I became an Admissions Tour Guide in the second-semester of my freshman year and that started the chain of events that have led me to full-time, professional work in Admissions for over 15 years.  As Director of Admissions/Recruitment, I want every admissible prospective student to attend – and graduate from – this Undeniably Viable Institution!  Learn more about Dr. Allen.
