New Director of Admissions Hired
John F. Swiney, formerly associate director of Admissions and Records and director of School and College Relations at the University of Washington, is the new director of Admissions at California State University, Chico.
Swiney spent 11 years in his position at the University of Washington. Prior to that, he served in several capacities at the U.S. Air Force Academy spanning 17 years, including director of cadet appointments, director of institutional research and an assistant professor in the Department of Psychology.
Swiney received his bachelor's and master's degrees in psychology from San Diego State University. He earned a Ph.D. in psychological studies in education at Stanford.
"We're extremely fortunate to have John join the campus community," said Bob Hannigan, vice provost for enrollment management. "Among John's many strengths are managing and supporting staff and maintaining positive relations with schools and community
colleges. He understands what it takes to build strong relationships with counselors and students, and knows the critical information points that help students make decisions to enroll."
Swiney, who began his new position on April 2, replaces Linda MacMichael, who became interim associate dean of CSU, Chico's Center for Regional and Continuing Education in August 2000.
