Indiana Wesleyan University CBO Nancy Schoonmaker Shares Importance of Perspective and EQ in Leadership

Nancy Schoonmaker serves as vice president and chief financial officer for Indiana Wesleyan University. When she landed there, she’d had no experience in higher education, coming from a position at a local mega-church where she’d been happily employed. But the call to serve IWU was strong, so she jumped in to learn the ropes of higher education and in the process brought her unique experience to her leadership at the institution.

She learned unique accounting structures, shared governance, and a balance of perspectives across constituencies. It’s been challenging, but her experience brings a unique story and one of interest to CBOs new and experienced alike.
