Senior Vice President for Student Affairs Tom Hill appointed Wohlgemuth to the interim position after the previously named interim Phil Caffrey opted to remain in his current post -- director of admissions operations and policy.

Since 2006, Wohlgemuth has held a joint appointment with Enrollment Services and the Office of the Senior Vice President and Provost, Budget and Planning.  He leads the Enrollment Research Team, conducting research and analysis on a variety of enrollment issues, including pricing, budgeting and strategic recruitment.

Wohlgemuth holds master of science and doctoral degrees in economics from Iowa State University. He earned a bachelor's degree in secondary math education from the University of Kansas, Lawrence, and an associate's degree from Hesston College, Hesston, Kan.

Marc Harding, who joined Iowa State's admissions office in 1997, now leads the University of Pittsburgh's office of admissions and financial aid.
