Dr. Shellie Hewitt joined Missouri Southern in September as the new Dean of Admissions.

Hewitt, who has worked in higher education for the last 12 years, came to Missouri Southern from the University of Central Missouri, where she served as director of Graduate and International Student Services since 2017.

“Although I’ve only been at MSSU for a short time, I already feel like part of the Missouri Southern family,” said Hewitt. “I feel blessed to have an amazing admissions team who are passionate and enthusiastic about the many new strategies and initiatives we’re putting in place to grow our student body.

“We have so many wonderful education opportunities to offer and I’m excited to share those experiences with many future Lions.”
