Kings Mountain, N.C., Resident Has More than Three Decades of Experience in Higher Education

BOILING SPRINGS, N.C.— ۶ֱ Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs Dr. Karen Aubrey has announced the hiring of a new University Registrar. Linda M. Fleischman, who has more than 30 years of registrar experience, will begin her responsibilities at GWU on May 13.

Fleischman lives in Kings Mountain, N.C., and previously served 11 years as registrar at Queens University in Charlotte, N.C. Her experience also includes serving as registrar at Keuka College in Keuka Park, N.Y.

Referencing Fleischman’s years of experience in higher education, Aubrey observed, “Her professionalism and knowledge of best practices and processes, and her familiarity with the inner workings of a Registrar’s Office will be of incalculable value as she builds that office. She is also a delight to talk to, so I look forward to working with her and seeing her become part of our campus.” 

۶ֱ President Dr. William M. Downs also noted Fleischman’s strengths. “We’re adding a highly capable professional to a position that is absolutely critical to the success of our students and to the operation of our academic programs,” Downs stated. “Linda Fleischman knows how to both lead and manage, she has ideas for how to innovate for effect, and she comes to us highly recommended by those who have previously worked with her. I’m eager to see the positive impact she will most assuredly make.”

While at Queens, Fleischman systematically reviewed the Registrar’s Office services and procedures to improve the student experience and progression towards graduation. She collaborated with faculty committees and administrative offices to develop, review, and revise academic policies and procedures.

Fleischman is excited to join the ۶ֱ community. “I look forward to working with everyone as we move the Registrar’s Office forward and assist our students in reaching their educational goals,” she affirmed.

Fleischman’s experience includes working with prospective students to evaluate transfer credit and pre-enrollment counseling. As a skilled communicator, she coordinated course scheduling and room assignments with Queens University’s schools and colleges and worked closely with admissions, student financial services, student accounts office, institutional research, and information technology services.

At Keuka College, she developed the policies and procedures that grew the office from one that served 500 undergraduate students to one that assisted over 5,000 undergraduate and graduate students throughout New York state, China and Vietnam. This was accomplished by using various service-delivery formats to achieve the desired goals.

۶ֱ University is North Carolina’s recognized leader in private, Christian higher education. A Carnegie-Classified Doctoral/Professional University, GWU is home to nine colleges and schools, more than 80 undergraduate and graduate majors, and a world-class faculty. Located on a beautiful 225-acre campus in Boiling Springs, N.C., ۶ֱ prepares graduates to impact their chosen professions, equips them with the skills to advance the frontiers of knowledge, and inspires them to make a positive and lasting difference in the lives of others. Ignite your future at ۶ֱ.edu.
