Lincoln Christian University (LCU) President Don Green and President-Elect Silas McCormick are pleased to announce that Brady Cremeens will assume the role of Vice President of Advancement and Alumni, effective May 11, 2020.
Brady moves over to his new role after several years in the Enrollment Services department, most recently as Vice President of Enrollment.
“I both love this place and believe in the work that we do here at LCU,” Brady said about the move. “Preparing students for Kingdom work is a lofty mission, and unique among the thousands of options for higher education in America. Connecting partners and supporters to the eternal impact LCU has is a serious task, and one to which I look forward to giving my best effort.”
A native of central Illinois, Brady graduated from Olympia High School in 2009, then in 2014 earned a Bachelor of Science in Bible from LCU and a Bachelor of Arts in Communication from the University of Illinois-Springfield. He completed his Master of Arts in Organizational Leadership from LCU in 2017, and is currently working toward a PhD in Higher Education Administration from Illinois State University.
“These are challenging times for institutions across the college and university spectrum, but especially for small faith-based schools,” Brady said. “While the quality of our students remains excellent, our two greatest needs are more of them, and increased financial resources to subsidize the cost of their education and the other operations of campus. I’m hopeful and prayerful that working in collaboration with the new Vice President of Enrollment, Mac Ingmire, will enable both of our vital departments to thrive and empower a sustainable and growth-focused future for LCU.”
Brady originally joined the LCU staff ranks in 2014 as an Enrollment Counselor under then-Director Ingmire, before being named in succession Associate Director of Undergraduate Enrollment, Director of Undergraduate Enrollment, Dean of Enrollment, and Vice President of Enrollment.
“This move makes sense for the future of the school,” President-Elect McCormick said. “Mac has enrollment expertise and leadership experience to bring to the table from his other stops, and Brady has the communication skills and passion for articulating “Why LCU?” to our constituents and donors. The greatest reward we have as LCU faculty and staff is seeing students graduate and go on to make a difference for Christ, applying what they learned here for the greatest possible cause. Mac and Brady will help us keep equipping difference-makers for years to come.”
