Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology has named Thomas Bear vice president for enrollment management. He will be joining the leadership team at the school July 15. Bear currently serves as senior director for enrollment management at the University of Notre Dame.

Prior to his move to Notre Dame in 2012, he served as vice president of enrollment services at the University of Evansville for seven years and assistant vice president and dean of admission at Evansville for four years. He also spent 11 years in a variety of roles in the Ivy Tech Community College system — first as registrar at the Columbus campus, then as manager of student support services in Indianapolis, and finally as dean of student affairs in Evansville. Bear started his career at Adrian College in Michigan and the Walden School in Louisville, Kentucky.

Bear will succeed James Goecker, who is retiring from Rose-Hulman after more than 32 years in student recruitment and enrollment management. Goecker has been vice president since 2008.

Bear earned a doctorate in education from Indiana University after receiving a master’s degree in public administration and bachelor’s degree in sociology from Indiana State University.
