Gail RobersonSAN ANTONIO - Trinity University has named Gail Roberson director of Houston recruitment. Roberson will be responsible for representing Trinity University to prospective students, parents, and high school counselors, and assisting in the evaluation of applications from students in that region.

Roberson, formerly director of admissions at Centenary College of Louisiana, has 12 years of experience in admissions at selective, liberal arts institutions. Prior to Centenary, she was associate director of admissions at Southwestern University and served more than 10 years in their recruitment operation. She is an active member of the National Association for College Admission Counseling. Roberson received a bachelor's degree from Southwestern University.

"As a native Houstonian, Gail understands the city and its culture," said Chris Ellertson, associate vice president for Enrollment and Student Retention. "Gail's experience and professionalism will strengthen Trinity's ties with the Houston community, our number one area for top students. She is a great addition to our staff."

Although Trinity recruits students nationally and internationally, more than 21 percent of Trinity students come from the Houston area, making it the University's primary market. Roberson will visit high schools, participate in college fairs, interview prospective students, and work with Houston-area Trinity alumni and current Trinity parents in recruitment activities.

Trinity University in San Antonio 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.
