New leaders in undergraduate admissions

submitted by

Devon Ross is the new director of undergraduate admissions at Augsburg University, and Shonna Fulford has been elevated to the Associate Director role, overseeing traditional undergraduate recruitment in admissions.

As a student athlete (soccer) at Augsburg, Devon worked in housing (while living in Mort) and also career services. College access became his calling when he began a career in admissions in 1993. He has several years of experience with each of our undergraduate populations; traditional, transfer, and adult.
A 2017 recipient of the Outstanding Staff Award at Augsburg, Devon has played a large role in several major initiatives that have helped transform Augsburg into a more diverse, thriving, urban university.
He serves as the Chair of Admissions Practices for the MN Association for College Admission Counseling (MACAC) and also for the MACAC Leadership Development Program as a mentor to new admissions professionals.
Additionally, he’s also part of the National College Fair organizing committee.
While he’s a busy father of five, wrapping up his Master of Arts in Leadership at Augsburg, Devon and his wife, Gina, also provide animal-foster housing for cats and dogs in their south-metro home.

Shonna Fulford has been promoted to the role of Associate Director of Traditional Undergraduate Admissions. Shonna hails originally from the vibrant, rural community of Perham, MN. A graduate of Augsburg in 2009, she continued on to earn her MS in Leadership in Higher Education from Capella University.
One of our most successful admissions counselors in her five years in admissions, Shonna will continue to manage a significant recruiting territory and serve on Staff Senate, having been elected in 2017.
Shonna has also served on the MACAC government relations committee and currently serves on the executive board of the MN Association of Counselors of Color.
