Steven E. Titus named president of Iowa Wesleyan College

INONA, Minn. — Dr. Steven E. Titus, Senior Vice President, University Advancement at Saint Mary’s University, has been selected as the next President of Iowa Wesleyan College, a four-year liberal arts college in Mount Pleasant, Iowa.

Titus joined Saint Mary’s University in September 2010. During his tenure, he led the re-organization of the University Advancement division, which aligned the disciplines of development, alumni relations, marketing and external relations of both the undergraduate college and the Schools of Graduate and Professional Programs.

As senior vice president and co-chair of the Centennial Celebration, Titus led the planning and execution of the year-long campaign which connected an unprecedented number of alumni and friends of the university to the transforming heritage of Saint Mary’s.

Also during his tenure, Titus contributed, as one of the university vice presidents, to the creation and adoption of Strategic Plan 2017 — the university’s first comprehensive strategic plan in over a decade — which boldly charts a direction for Saint Mary’s as it begins its second century.

“Dr. Titus is a talented leader in higher education. It has been clear, since the time of his arrival, that he wanted to return to the presidency of a liberal arts college,” said Brother President William Mann. “To have members of our university leadership considered for presidential posts at other institutions also speaks to the strength of the Saint Mary’s leadership team. We are grateful that we’ve had him with us to guide a successful centennial celebration, and wish him much success as this new chapter in his life opens.”

Titus will continue to serve Saint Mary’s through July 2013.
