The Associated Colleges of the Midwest (ACM) is pleased to announce the promotion of Betsy Hutula to the position of Chief Operating Officer and Vice President for Administration, reflecting her broad responsibility for ACM operations and her increased involvement in shaping new initiatives for the consortium.
In her 18 years at ACM, Hutula has touched all aspects of the consortium’s activities, most recently serving as Chief of Staff. She began at ACM in 2004 as the Program Associate for five off-campus study programs. Her subsequent work has focused primarily on the operations side of ACM, including governance, administration, grant projects, workshop and conference planning, and human resources. Other roles have included Assistant to the President, Administrator of Projects & Personnel, and Director of Human Resources and Administrative Leadership Initiatives.
Betsy’s commitment to our colleges, collaborative spirit, attention to detail, and strategic leadership have made her an invaluable partner to me and the entire consortium. It has been a pleasure to see her grow with our organization, and I am pleased to recognize her contributions in this way.”
—Sonya Malunda, President of the ACM
In her new role, Hutula will take on more responsibility with new initiatives, working closely with ACM’s President, Board of Directors, and Advisory Board of Deans. She will continue to oversee off-campus study programs, administration, operations, human resources, and governance, and she remains a partner with ACM finance staff and liaison to several consortial groups. She also continues to administer the ACM’s Tuition Remission Exchange Program (TREP).
“Betsy’s commitment to our colleges, collaborative spirit, attention to detail, and strategic leadership have made her an invaluable partner to me and the entire consortium,” said Sonya Malunda, ACM President. “It has been a pleasure to see her grow with our organization, and I am pleased to recognize her contributions in this way.”
In addition to working at the ACM, Hutula is also a residential liberal arts graduate. She holds a BA from Albion College in art history and political science, with a concentration in public policy and service from the Gerald R. Ford Institute for Public Policy and Service.
