Stefanie D. Niles has been named the thirteenth president of Cottey College in Nevada, Missouri, effective July 1. Cottey College enrolls just under 300 students – all women – according to the most recent data from the U.S. Department of Education.

“I am deeply honored to have the opportunity to become the next president of Cottey College,” said Dr. Niles. “I am inspired by Cottey’s mission to educate women to be contributing members of a global society, particularly as I have both benefited personally from a single-gender educational experience, and I have worked at a women’s college. The unique experience that Cottey offers its students is distinctive and important, and I’m eager to champion Cottey and be a vocal and impassioned advocate for the many opportunities offered to the women it serves.”

Dr. Niles comes to Cottey College from Ohio Wesleyan University in Delaware, Ohio, where she has served as vice president for enrollment and communications, a position she has held since 2018. Prior to that, she worked at Dickinson College in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, Hollins University in Roanoke, Virginia,, Bryn Athyn College in Pennsylvania, DePauw University in Greencastle, Indiana, and the University of Tennessee.
