Kurt Mueller has been named the new Administrative Director of College Advising for Southeast Community College. Mueller comes to the College from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln where he most recently served as the Assistant Director of Graduate Recruitment.

“In my new position, I hope to continue the successes the advising team has had and leverage the expertise of our advisors to improve student onboarding and outcomes,” he said.
