Wells College is pleased to announce the hiring of Paul Applebee as the College's new registrar and director of institutional research. Applebee began his duties on June 11, 2018.
Applebee most recently served as the academic advisor/registrar at Bryant and Stratton College in Liverpool, N.Y. Initially hired by Bryant and Stratton as a financial aid coordinator in 2012, Applebee was soon promoted to residence life director/academic advisor, serving in those capacities from 2013-2015. Applebee performed in dual-roles for much of his tenure at Bryant and Stratton, winning five "Above and Beyond" awards in recognition of his dedication and hard work.
He brings a wealth of experience to Wells, with prior experience working on a small campus and a proven ability to meet the needs of individual students. Additionally, Applebee provides a strong background in data analysis and research.
"Wells will benefit immensely from Paul's experience at a critical time when the College is formalizing institutional research as part of this inaugural director role," said Cindy J. Speaker, provost and dean of the College.
Applebee earned his B.A in English and textual studies and English education from Syracuse University.
Mr. Applebee succeeds Nicole Pellegrino '05, who served as the College's registrar and director of academic advising from 2015 through February of this year. She previously served as director of academic advising from 2013 to 2015, before that role was combined with that of the registrar.
