Sarah Moschenross headshotSarah Moschenross, dean of students at Grinnell College since 2015, is being promoted to associate vice president for student affairs at the College this summer. 

Moschenross will oversee all aspects of student affairs including the dean of students, campus safety, international student affairs, intercultural affairs, religious life, residence life, student activities, student assistance, wellness, and student health and counseling services. 

“I am excited to continue my work within our vibrant community to advance the co-curricular experience for Grinnell College students,” says Moschenross. “To do this work alongside a strong team of student affairs educators and engaged student leaders will be especially rewarding.”

Moschenross succeeds Andrea Conner, who will leave Grinnell in June to become vice president and dean of students at Lake Forest College in Lake Forest, Illinois. Conner has served Grinnell since 2009, demonstrating exceptional leadership in enhancing intercultural affairs, campus safety, and student health and counseling. 

Before coming to Grinnell, Moschenross was director of the Ronald E. McNair Postbaccalaureate Achievement Program at Knox College in Galesburg, Illinois. In that role, she mentored, advised, advocated for, and counseled underrepresented, low-income, and first-generation college students.
