Walsh University has appointed Edna McCulloh as the new Dean of Academic Services. She will assume the duties of Dr. Cindy Staudt who retired in June 2016 after 30 years of service to Walsh University.

McCulloh brings 18 years of academic support experience to this position where she will oversee a variety of services to assist students in meeting their academic goals. Her responsibilities will include providing academic support and resources to assist students in their progress towards degree completion. The Office of Academic Services is directly responsible for the Office of Professional Advising, whose primary responsibilities include advising first-year students and athletic advisors who monitor athletes' academic progress in accordance with NCAA requirements. Academic Services also coordinates placement and scheduling of all incoming, first-year students and for all students on academic probation. Additionally, the Office of Academic Services includes the Academic Support Center, which provides tutoring services to all students, the Office of Accessibility Services, which manages accommodations for students with documented disabilities, First-Year Orientation courses, the Brother Edmond Drouin Library, Office of Academic Achievement and the Office of the Registrar.

McCulloh joined Walsh in 1998 as Registrar, a position she held until 2013, when she was promoted from Registrar to Assistant Dean of Academic Services.  During her tenure as Registrar, McCulloh led the migration to the on-line student course registration and faculty self-service systems, the expansions of military student services, at-risk student support resources and multicultural student academic services.

She earned her Bachelor of Science degree from Aquinas College, her Master of Arts degree from Western Michigan University and is currently pursuing her Ed.D. at Walden University.

McCulloh resides in Akron, Ohio with her husband, Rev. Larry and daughter, Imani.
