Tim Fuller is a higher education speaker, strategic planner, enrollment strategist, and data enthusiast. Tim will be the first to tell you that “it takes a campus to recruit a student,” and then give you not only the data you need, but the “so what?” behind it to set successful strategies for your institution’s health, stability, and sustainable culture in motion. After thirteen years with Credo as an Owner, Senior Vice President, and Executive Leadership Team member, Tim has returned to the affiliate status he enjoyed with Credo to found his own firm, Fuller Higher Ed Solutions. He is an enthusiastic advocate for Credo and its services designed to strengthen independent higher education campuses and leaders so that their students thrive and are launched successfully into careers and graduate school.
Tim’s heart for higher education took root during the years he spent serving at his alma mater, Houghton College. In 1980, Tim began serving as an admission counselor and spent the final 14 years of his 27-year tenure as the Vice President for Enrollment Management. His passion for Christian higher education means he enjoys serving both institutions and organizations in this unique and valuable niche. He has conducted enrollment research on behalf of the sector for more than 30 years including leading NACCAP’s Enrollment Research Project since 2008. In 2003, the CCCU named Tim a Senior Research Fellow in appreciation for his ongoing commitment to enrollment research, and in 2015, the ABHE named him a Senior Fellow for his contributions to their professional development curriculum and conferences.
A grounded family man, accomplished choir singer, and life-long Mets fan, Tim earned his B.A. from Houghton College and M.B.A. from State University of New York at Buffalo.
