Academic Affairs is pleased to announce that Mr. Wesley Spradlin has been appointed as the Marshall University Director of Off Campus Centers; a position previously held by Joyce Harrah prior to her retirement in December 2023. Spradlin will assume his new position on May 4, 2024.

Spradlin has an MBA in Business Administration in Management and an MS in Human Resource Management. Currently, he is the MBA Program Director and the Associate Director of the Graduate School of Management in the Lewis College of Business (LCOB) at Marshall University. Prior to his current appointments, Spradlin was an academic advisor and established a living learning community in the residence halls for LCOB students. Additionally, Spradlin has served as an adjunct professor, teaching courses in both marketing and management and is an experienced and successful student recruiter.

As the Director of Off Campus Centers, Spradlin will be responsible for management of regional operations, including but not limited to, the South Charleston campus, the Mid-Ohio Valley (MOVC) campus, and Marshall activities at the Harless Community Center in Gilbert, WV. Additionally, Spradlin will develop strategic plans to maximize usage of Marshall’s off-campus locations, create partnerships in the communities that host these locations, and recruit students to engage in activities and events at these locations. Successful execution of these strategic plans will require collaboration with units across the institution.

Spradlin’s extensive background in business administration and human resource management, combined with his academic experience, position him well for the responsibilities of managing regional operations and developing strategic plans for Marshall University’s off-campus locations.
