Gustavus Adolphus College Vice President for Enrollment Management Tom Crady announced today that Rich Aune ’81 has been named director of admission for the College.

Aune has worked in the Gustavus Office of Admission for 26 years. He has served Gustavus as a counselor, assistant director, associate director, and most recently senior associate director of admission.

“Rich has dedicated more than 20 years to this institution and has played a large role in recruiting thousands of Gusties over the past two decades,” Crady said. “I am confident he is the right person to step into this important role.”

As director of admission, Aune will be responsible for oversight of the daily operations of the admission office.

“I am excited for the challenges that lie ahead in this new role,” Aune said. “It’s a privilege to be able to work with the talented admission staff here at Gustavus on a daily basis.”

Aune earned his bachelor’s degree in chemistry from Gustavus in 1981. He and his wife, Tami ’82, live in St. Peter with their three daughters, Melissa ’12, Mari, and McKenna.
