Dawn Hiles, Associate Vice President and Consultant

Dawn Hiles joined Ruffalo Noel Levitz in 2013, with eleven years of experience working in higher education. She served as Vice President of Enrollment Management and Dean of Admissions at Drury University (MO) for five years. Dawn worked with Ruffalo Noel Levitz while in this role, and she credits this partnership as being integral in achieving their record-breaking results. During her time as Vice President, Drury experienced the three highest years of enrollment in the university's 138 year history, while simultaneously increasing the class profile and net tuition revenue. Dawn is excited to now work with institutions in helping them achieve similar outcomes such as enhanced class selectivity, geographic targeting, increased retention, and improved net tuition revenue.

In addition to her experience as Vice President and Dean of Admissions, she brings perspective from her training at the Institute for Management and Leadership in Education at Harvard University and her selection as an American Council on Education (ACE) Fellow at Washington University in St. Louis. This unique combination of experiences provides Dawn tremendous insight into the complexities of higher education and the role of enrollment managers. She brings a data-driven approach to identifying enrollment management solutions and strategies that benefit the entire institution.

Dawn lives in Springfield, Missouri with her wonderful husband, John, and her lovingly spoiled dog, Lambeau.
