Alice R. McAdory
Vice President for Student Success and Enrollment Management

HAMPTON ROADS, VA {May 2011} – Tidewater Community College announces the appointment of Alice R. McAdory as vice president for student success and enrollment management, a new position at TCC.

With more than 25 years of administrative and executive leadership experience in higher education, McAdory assumed her new role on May 16. Most recently associate vice president for enrollment management at Old Dominion University, she has led numerous university initiatives with increasing scopes of responsibility, many focused on the areas of student success and enrollment management.

“By all accounts, Dr. McAdory is a first-rate leader in higher education with experience and expertise that make her ideally suited to pioneer our new vice presidential area,” says TCC President Deborah M. DiCroce. “She will take the college's critical work in student success to the next level and, in so doing, contribute to advancing the larger vision of the college.”

In her new position, McAdory will provide strategic, college-wide leadership for TCC’s institutional focus on student success as the college’s principal goal. She will oversee a functional area that includes Central Records, Student Activities and leadership programs, Disabilities Services, and Recruitment and Enrollment Management, as well as the Open Door Project, a grant-supported initiative to assist individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds to succeed in college.

McAdory’s most recent work at ODU included overseeing the myriad functions of student services, including one-stop customer service area, the operation of financial aid, military services and undergraduate, graduate, distance learning and international admissions offices. She also was responsible for establishing and advising 14 enrollment-management committees that create strategic components of the university’s enrollment plan.

A Smithfield resident, McAdory joined ODU in 1991 to launch the university’s first full-service military off-campus site, building on early career positions running military programs at Golden Gate University/Shaw Air Force Base and Troy State University/Norfolk Naval Base. She holds a bachelor’s degree in German language from the University of Maryland and a master’s in clinical psychology and counseling from Valdosta State University. She earned her doctorate in educational policy and leadership, with a concentration in higher education administration, from The College of William and Mary.
