Douglas E. Clark, vice president for enrollment management and student life at Mary Baldwin University, will become vice president for student enrollment and adjunct professor of business at Peace College in Raleigh, North Carolina, in June. Clark served as the executive director of enrollment at Mary Baldwin from 1992 to1995, returning in 1997.
Under Clark and his personalized approach to recruitment, the college has become the largest and fastest-growing women’s college in Virginia. The number of applications has set records, and the credentials of incoming freshmen have steadily risen. Clark also has helped promote improvements in student life, athletics, and the Office of African-American and Multicultural Affairs.
“We will miss Doug’s leadership, his humor, and his many creative talents,” said Mary Baldwin President Pamela Fox. “We thank and honor him for his dedication to Mary Baldwin University.”
Mary Baldwin University, with a main campus in Staunton, Virginia, and five regional centers, excels in providing leadership training, character development, and career preparation with a strong academic foundation. A master’s level university, Mary Baldwin offers three undergraduate residential programs for women – the Traditional Program for Women, the Program for the Exceptionally Gifted, and the Virginia Women’s Institute for Leadership – as well as coeducational, nonresidential bachelor’s and master’s degree programs. Mary Baldwin offers the B.A. and/or the B.S. in more than 30 majors, the Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT), the Master of Letters (M.Litt.) and Master of Fine Arts (MFA) in Shakespeare and Renaissance Literature in Performance, and post-graduate teacher licensure (PGTL). The oldest women’s college affiliated with the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), Mary Baldwin was founded in 1842 and was the first women’s college to be granted a circle of the national leadership honor society Omicron Delta Kappa. It is one of relatively few colleges and universities to shelter a chapter of the prestigious Phi Beta Kappa honor society.
