San Antonio, Texas -- Trinity University has appointed Keith B. Stanford as director of California recruitment. Stanford will be responsible for recruiting students from California supporting the University's tradition of enrolling a diverse population from across the country and overseas. 

Stanford, formerly the senior associate director at DePauw University, has 13 years' experience in recruitment and financial aid in a private liberal arts college environment. "Keith is one our profession's best recruiters, he cares passionately about students and their advancement into higher education," said Chris Ellertson, associate vice president for enrollment and student retention. During his tenure at DePauw, Stanford successfully recruited students, both domestically and internationally, to the Midwest liberal arts college. He received his Bachelor of Arts in English from DePauw and after graduation worked briefly for Champion International, a large paper manufacturer, before returning to DePauw as an admissions counselor and recruiter.

Trinity University, which recruits students nationally and internationally, has established a California regional representative to assist students interested in exploring college options in Texas. California sends the second largest number of students, after Texas, to Trinity. "Many California students look at Texas schools as part of their college search, and we want to ensure Trinity is an option when they come to visit our state," said Ellertson.

Trinity University in San Antonio, Texas, offers highly motivated students an interdisciplinary liberal arts and sciences experience. Founded in 1869, Trinity's educational experience is designed to stimulate creative thinking, inspire academic excellence, encourage engagement with the broader community, and graduate professionally prepared global leaders and entrepreneurs of tomorrow.
