Edward Newhall

Edward Newhall has directed the RISD Admissions office since shortly after graduating from RISD himself with both BFA and Bachelor of Architecture degrees.

Promoted to Associate Vice President for Enrollment in 2013, he now guides the work of the dedicated teams in Admissions, Student Financial Services and the Registrar's Office.

Together, the staff members in these areas work to identify and enroll the number, quality and type of new undergraduate and graduate students needed to enrich RISD's learning community with talented, vibrant, curious and engaged visual creators.

Once each new class of students is admitted to RISD, Ed and his team work to ensure that they receive the best possible support through seamless systems and services designed to allow students to focus on the vibrant learning opportunities at hand.
