Modeled after the successful National College Fairs, WEF events provide high school students, adults and transfer students information from approximately 100 different post-secondary institutions, including representatives from Wisconsin and out-of-state colleges and universities, vocational schools, trade schools, and the military.
“I’m eager to step in and play a role in letting people know what options exist for them in higher education,” said Liptow. “It’s so important for individuals to explore how they can continue their education, so I look forward to helping students as they begin exploring their next chapter.”
Liptow, who joined Marian in 2000, will be responsible for coordinating WEF programs, which serve more than 20,000 students. She will work closely with high school counselors, Department of Public Instruction, financial aid administrators, college admissions officers, and military recruiters to provide accurate, timely information to individuals seeking postsecondary education opportunities.
“Megan has consistently shown she has a knack for guiding those who have questions about how to continue their education,” said Jennifer Machacek, WEF president and Ripon College vice president for Enrollment Management. “Her deep knowledge and experience with helping students will no doubt benefit those who attend future WEF events.”
