Lisa Pinamonti will become the permanent director of admissions and scholarships at Kansas University, officials announced Wednesday.
Pinamonti, associate director of the office since 2000, has served as interim director since April 2002, when Alan Cerveny left to become director of admissions at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
As admissions director, Pinamonti will oversee student recruitment activities, new student scholarships, application processing and transfer credit evaluation. The office has 32 staff members and a $2 million annual budget.
Pinamonti has been at KU since 1999. She previously worked at Pittsburg State University and Wichita State University.
