Amanda Knapp, Ph.D.

Member of The Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi

I am an innovative, solutions oriented, academic leader with extensive experience in the field of higher education. With an unwavering commitment to student success I have passionately served as an administrator and faculty member at a variety of regionally accredited post-secondary institutions ranging in size and scope. I have been recognized by colleagues as a collaborative leader who empowers diverse teams, embraces change and fosters relationships to navigate complex projects requiring strategic thinking, integrity and decisiveness. As a priority, I engage in every opportunity for continuous learning to expand upon my understanding of emerging trends and best practices particularly in the areas of academic policy, accreditation, and compliance to competently navigate federal and state regulatory requirements as they continue to evolve and shape the landscape of higher education. As I reflect on the many successes that I have had in the field of higher education and consider the many opportunities ahead I can't help but to feel honored to be part of a profession that is rooted in serving others. I truly believe that to give to others is the greatest reward to oneself! Fun Fact: As a first generation college student from rural West Virginia, I have blended a career in higher education with off-road motorcycle racing, a sport that I am passionate about, to help students, stay on track. As a hobby, I race competitively in the East Coast Enduro Association Womens Series and have been featured in numerous publications for changing perceptions, outracing stereotypes and pushing past obstacles.
