Executive Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs Michelle Malott said, “Carrie’s leadership experience and scholarly work in the area of student success management, her understanding of the challenges experienced by both our on-campus and online students, and her vision for an integrated model of student engagement that will help connect and take advantage of the many successful student retention efforts our faculty and staff are already engaged in, made her the strongest candidate for this new position. I’d also like to give kudos to Sarah Soper and the members of the search committee for providing a very impressive group of finalists for consideration.”

Reisner started at IU East in June 2009 as the executive director of University College, which had been newly established on campus to provide first-year students with the academic and personal support they need to be successful.

Since June 2017, Reisner has served as the interim dean of students. She also served as the interim dean of students from July 2015 to June 2016 and July 2012 to June 2013. Reisner was also the ACT test site supervisor from June 2010 to June 2012.

“I am truly grateful for this opportunity to serve in a new role at IU East,” Reisner said. “I have grown to love our students and campus community over the last nine years and I look forward to having a broader impact on student success and engagement.”

As assistant vice chancellor Reisner said her vision for this new role includes creating a model to help students, faculty, and staff further strengthen the connections between the engagement efforts occurring on campus; reducing silos and increasing interdepartmental initiatives related to student success; developing a system to consistently communicate the campus’ progress toward its goals for engagement; and using data to further inform our efforts toward student success and engagement.

She is a member of the American College Personnel Association (ACPA), Association of Deans and Directors of University Colleges and Undergraduate Studies (AD&D), Indiana Academic Advising Network (IAAN), Indiana Student Affairs Association (ISAA), National Academic Advising Association (NACADA) and the National Association of Student Personnel Administrators (NASPA)

Reisner has a M.S. in College Student Personnel Administration from Canisius College and her Bachelor of Science Speech-Language Pathology from Buffalo State College, both located in Buffalo, New York.

She received a Certificate in College and University Teaching and a Certificate in Community College Leadership from Ball State University. She is working on her Doctorate of Education in Adult, Higher, & Community Education from Ball State University, with an anticipated completion of the program in December 2018.
