Executive Director of Admissions

Emma Adebayo comes to Augustana after most recently serving as the associate director of admissions, inclusion, and access at Washington University in St Louis. In that role, she focused efforts on historically underrepresented or under-resourced populations.

She led strategy, planning, and management of recruitment and yield-initiatives, community-based organization partnerships, and efforts to educate on- and off-campus communities on highly-selective college admissions.

Adebayo serves as a leader in state and national professional organizations, such as the National Association for College Admissions and Counseling (NACAC).

Before her time at Washington University, Adebayo worked at Lawrence Technological University, University of Nebraska-Lincoln, and for the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign.
