WOOSTER, Ohio, August 26, 2013 – The Alumni Board of The College of Wooster has appointed Jennifer E. Saliers to a three-year term on the college’s Board of Trustees. Saliers, a consultant on non-profit organization management and 1983 graduate of the college, will begin her service at the October meeting of the board.

Prior to becoming an independent management consultant focusing on the non-profit sector, Saliers worked in a number of development, alumni relations, and communications positions with organizations including the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, Lawrence University, and Georgia Tech.

Saliers has remained engaged with the college in a variety of ways ever since graduation. She has been an alumni admissions representative, co-class president, and regional leader of Scots in Service, and has been active in the Atlanta area on behalf of the college. She also served on Wooster’s Alumni Board from 1993 to 1996.

Saliers earned a bachelor’s degree in history from Wooster, where she was elected to Phi Beta Kappa. She and her husband, William Levisay, also a Wooster graduate, live in Atlanta with their two children.

The College of Wooster is America’s premier college for mentored undergraduate research. Wooster offers an excellent, comprehensive liberal arts education, culminating in a rigorous senior project, in which each student works one-on-one with a faculty mentor to conceive, organize and complete a significant research project on a topic of the student’s own choosing. Through this distinctive program, every Wooster student develops abilities valued by employers and graduate schools alike: independent judgment, analytical ability, creativity, project-management and time-management skills, and strong written and oral communication skills. Founded in 1866, the college enrolls approximately 2,000 students.
