New director of student and enrollment services joins Penn State Fayette
After conducting a nationwide search, Penn State Fayette, The Eberly Campus has named Jason Broadwater as the new director of student and enrollment services.
Broadwater, a Fayette County native and current Connellsville resident, brings experience in university admissions and student services to Penn State Fayette.
Broadwater was previously employed with West Virginia University where he served as an admissions counselor and student services coordinator for the university’s P.I. Reed School of Journalism. As an admissions counselor, he increased student enrollment and generated participation in the National Alumni Recruitment Network. In his most recent role as student service coordinator, Broadwater developed and launched recruitment campaigns, created an internship connection blog for the School of Journalism, and garnered a 65 percent participation rate of graduating students completing an internship.
Penn State Fayette Chancellor Francis Achampong says Broadwater is joining a campus community that is focused on growing its student population and is therefore “an excellent fit.”
Not only has Broadwater contributed to the world of academia, he has also served as developer and philanthropist of the Andy B. Fund of the Pittsburgh Foundation. This non-profit organization is working to develop a research fund to raise money for pediatric cancer research, awareness and support. Through Broadwater’s leadership, the organization has raised over $35,000.
Broadwater earned his master of science in integrated marketing communication from WVU and his bachelor of arts in communication from Bethany College.
