Kevin Solomon, a member of the Arkansas Tech University staff since 2005, will serve as ATU interim assistant vice president for student affairs in enrollment management through June 30, 2023.

Solomon’s appointment was announced by Dr. Keegan Nichols, ATU vice president for student affairs.

“Kevin’s experience at Arkansas Tech, his connections in the community and his personality are well suited to provide leadership for enrollment management,” said Nichols. “I am appreciative of his willingness to serve in this capacity.”

Solomon began his ATU career working in residence life (2005-11) and campus life (2011-21). He was promoted to dean of student engagement in 2022 and maintains that role in addition to his interim duties in enrollment management.

As interim assistant vice president for student affairs in enrollment management, Solomon will oversee admissions, recruitment, the ATU One-Stop Student Center and the ATU marketing office.

“It is important that we enhance and build relationships with K-12 leaders, teachers, counselors, students and parents in our immediate service area and beyond,” said Solomon. “That will be one area of emphasis over the next several months as we seek to connect students who fit at Arkansas Tech with the academic and personal development opportunities that exist here.”

Solomon holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in history from Southern Arkansas University and a Master of Science degree in counseling and student personnel services from Oklahoma State University.
