The University of Valley Forge (UVF) welcomes new Associate Dean of Assessment and Registrar, Troy Gearhart ‘99, Ph.D., back to the university. In his new position, Gearhart will oversee and coordinate institutional research as well as reporting, advising, registration and the assessment of student learning. "It is great to be back and be part of the team," Gearhart said. "Being a former student here, I can offer some insight from a student's perspective and understanding." 
 
After graduating from UVF, Gearhart received a master's degree in Organizational Leadership and a doctorate in Organizational Leadership and Human Resource Development from Regent University. He served as an adjunct professor at four higher education institutions in the past 10 years, which most recently were Frostburg State University and UVF.
