Gettysburg College President Bob Iuliano announced today, June 9, that Anne Ehrlich has been appointed to serve as the College’s Vice President of College Life and Dean of Students, effective July 26.
Ehrlich comes to Gettysburg with more than 20 years of experience—from her first positions in residence life to her various administrative roles at Whittier College and Woodbury University and her current role as vice president for student development at Knox College. At Knox, she has provided strategic vision to the College’s student affairs division, advised the president on matters of campus climate, and led the board of trustees committee on campus life and athletics.
Ehrlich’s work has largely been in service to preparing students to be the thinkers, innovators, problem solvers, and leaders that our increasingly complex world requires.
Some of her noteworthy accomplishments during her tenure include: expanding programs and services to support students’ mental and physical health, coordinating a robust first-year experience that spans the curriculum and co-curriculum, expanding and transforming Knox’s career center, and developing the HOPE (House of Peace and Equity) Center.
In her new position at the College, Ehrlich will partner with Academic Affairs, Enrollment & Educational Services, and other stakeholders to develop a comprehensive vision for the Division of College Life. This vision will build on the four pillars of Gettysburg’s new strategic plan to shape a future-oriented and student-centered program that collectively advances the College’s commitment to diversity, inclusion, and belonging. She will follow Julie Ramsey who retired last December and Jeff Foster who filled the position in the interim.
“In my conversations with Anne over the past several months, she has shared that while her love for student affairs will always be embedded in her dedication to each student’s dreams, her work has had the greatest impact when she has inspired systemic evolution through strategic planning and educational design, and advanced campus cultures toward inclusive excellence—work for which I am immensely eager to see her build upon and contribute to at Gettysburg,” Iuliano said.
