New Director for International Student Recruitment and Admission

Central has enhanced its commitment to attracting international students with the hiring of Frederik Schlingemann as director for international student recruitment and admission. Schlingemann arrived on campus in June and now works to create relationships with international schools and students.

Schlingemann is a Dutch citizen and earned his B.S. in business administration from Webster University, Leiden, The Netherlands, and his MBA from Webster University in Saint Louis, Missouri. He formerly served as the international recruitment coordinator at the University of Michigan-Flint, where he supervised international undergraduate, graduate and English Language Program student recruitment.

Schlingemann also previously worked as the international student recruiter at Winthrop University in Rock Hill, South Carolina, and worked as a graduate assistant with International Recruitment and Services at Webster University.

By hiring Schlingemann, Central seeks to build on its reputation as an international community of global learners and a leading college in global, experiential education. Support from the Vermeer Charitable Foundation is instrumental in efforts around international student recruitment and global citizenship.

“I am honored and excited to join the Central College community,” Schlingemann said. “I look forward to growing Central’s international student population and to building strong relationships with members of the Central community.”
