The College of Business is delighted to welcome Amber Manning-Ouellette as the new Director of Enrollment Management. 

Although new to the College of Business, Amber isn’t new to the University.  She joins us from the Saluki First Year office where she has been a key team member and a University College 101 instructor since 2011.  She started University College in 2009 as a Saluki First Year graduate assistant.  While working with Saluki First Year, Amber was a strategic team member and was instrumental in the implementation of this program for incoming SIU students.  She also assisted in the development and execution of the expansion of Saluki First Year to University College. 

In addition to her outstanding work experience, Amber has also demonstrated her ability for leadership and retention through her work with orientations, open houses, marketing events and programs, and social media interaction with students. 

Amber holds two degrees from Southern Illinois University including a Master of Science in Education, and a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology.  She is currently working on her doctorate in Educational Administration and Higher Education.

Jill Gebke, Assistant Dean stated, “I look forward to the energy Amber will bring to recruitment and retention for the College of Business.  Her experience is perfectly aligned with our internal goals and strategies.  We are thrilled to have her join our team.”
