Tom McHugh ’99

Alumni and Staff

I'm proud to serve as Director in the Academic Support Center (ASC) at Gustavus. The ASC staff helps empower Gustavus students to thrive academically by supporting our faculty-based academic advising program, providing resources for academic skill development, and providing academic accessibility resources to ensure that all Gusties have equal access to their education. Please stop in to see us in Anderson Hall 107 or call us at 507 933 7227.

Here in the ASC, I provide leadership for the center and for our professional staff, spearhead the planning of Gustie Gear-Up! Registration and Summer Orientation, and support college-wide student advising and retention efforts. Please contact me with questions about the mission and vision of the ASC, first-year, transfer, and exchange student registration, readmission, academic advising, student retention, and Starfish.

Prior to my work in the ASC, I served Gustavus as Senior Associate Dean of Admission and other roles in the Admission Office for 15 years. I recruited first-year and transfer students from Minnesota and around the country, and led the College's transfer and PSEO admission programs. I also enjoyed being an active member of the Minnesota Association for College Admission Counseling (MACAC) and the National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC).
