Harrison College has named Luke Knoke president of its Fort Wayne campus. Knoke has worked at Harrison since 2013, serving most recently as dean of academic affairs in Fort Wayne.
In his new role, Knoke will oversee all local campus operations. The college says he will also be responsible for the campus’ growth, profitability and community engagement.
"Luke’s extensive background in academic leadership is a great asset to this already thriving campus in Fort Wayne," said Dr. Jim Hutton, president and CEO of Harrison College. "Harrison’s mission is to collaborate with students, staff, faculty, alumni and our community to deliver student-centered education and prepare students for careers that positively impact society, both locally and globally. Luke will continue to bring this mission to life through his natural ability to quickly make deep-impacting ties in Fort Wayne and surrounding communities."
Harrison says Knoke served in a variety of leadership roles in higher education for 16 years prior to joining the Fort Wayne campus. His duties included administration, sales and academic management during that time.
"I am honored to have been selected to serve as campus president in Fort Wayne and look forward to interacting more closely with students to help them on their educational journey," said Knoke. "Harrison’s educational values mirror mine: excellence, service and compliance, and I look forward to continuing Harrison’s more than 100-year legacy of serving the Fort Wayne community."
