She has served as vice president at Salisbury since 2005. Located on the Eastern Shore in Salisbury, Md., SU is a member of the University System of Maryland. A regionally accredited four-year comprehensive institution, it has an enrollment of 8,055.

Neufeldt previously served as assistant vice chancellor for student development and dean of student life at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. She was also a faculty member in its master's program in educational counseling.

At Old Dominion, Neufeldt will be responsible for the development, implementation, communication and maintenance of an institutional focus on student success. Along with the provost, she will co-chair the Student Success and Enrollment Management Advisory Board.

"Her breadth and depth of knowledge in student engagement, experience in student affairs and enrollment management, leadership skills and collaborative style make Dr. Neufeldt an eminently qualified leader in our effort to set a new standard for student success and student learning," ODU President John R. Broderick said in a March 2 letter to the campus community, announcing the appointment.
