Zahler Named Assistant Dean at BGSU Firelands

Bowling Green State University Firelands College has promoted Megan Zahler to the position of assistant dean for strategic enrollment planning.

Working closely with leadership at both the Bowling Green and Firelands campuses, the assistant dean will supervise all admissions and student services functions of the College.

“This position will allow for a coordination of services and initiatives that, historically, has been difficult to achieve. I am confident that bringing these two units together under Megan’s leadership and expertise will yield immediate results,” said BGSU Firelands Dean Andy Kurtz.

Zahler has been at BGSU Firelands since 2013 when she was hired as the coordinator of career services.  She most recently served as the interim director of strategic enrollment management, replacing long-time director Deborah Divers who retired in February 2017.

Prior to joining BGSU Firelands, Zahler was the associate director of the undergraduate division at The Wharton School, Philadelphia, and coordinator of career services and student life at the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine.

Zahler earned a doctorate degree in higher education administration from Widener University, Chester, Pa., a master’s degree in higher education from the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, and a bachelor’s degree in English literature from The College of New Jersey, Ewing Township.
