Micaela Lenhart, EdD

Director of Strategic Initiatives for Enrollment Management Technology at Kansas State University

Dr. Micaela Lenhart was a first-generation college student who never intended to go to college. What started as an agreement with her parents to earn her associate degree turned into a lifelong passion for helping others realize that earning a degree is possible. That dedication has inspired her work in higher ed admissions, enrollment, and recruitment for more than thirteen years. She has held positions in large universities and small colleges and is currently focused on strategic enrollment initiatives at Kansas State University.

Dr. Lenhart is also passionate about volunteering. Her dog Tucker is a certified therapy animal and together they provide calming, therapeutic healing for people of all ages, including within the special needs community.
