Graduate School USA (GSUSA) President and CEO, Jack Maykoski has announced the appointment of Beth Stoops as the organization’s new Vice President for Curriculum and Learning Solutions.

In taking the helm of GSUSA’s newly aligned Curriculum unit, Stoops will be responsible for leading and setting the strategic direction for the team that manages the organization’s products and services. Stoops is an executive leader in higher education, curriculum design, and global business development, with more than 25 years of proven experience in strategic planning, organizational development, leadership, and Profit and Loss (P & L) management.

Having held a key executive position at Thunderbird School of Global Management, as the Senior Vice President of Executive Education, Stoops also held a dual role as the Vice President of the Employer Partnership Group and VP of the Solutions and Strategy Team, at the University of Phoenix. Prior to that, she ran her own consulting business, focusing on leadership communications and cross-cultural communications.

Stoops has specifically led and/or co-led the design of certificate programs, undergraduate and graduate degree programs, as well as non-degree solutions and continuing education offerings in collaboration with university partners, professional services organizations, and corporate partners. Originally from Ohio, she earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from Bowling Green State University and a Master of Arts degree from the University of Arizona, and has proven experience in designing and teaching in multiple modalities: online, blended, and face-to-face.

“I am confident that Beth has a firm grasp on the opportunities ahead of us,” said Maykoski. He added that he wants to “thank John Green for his excellent work over the past couple of years in leading the Curriculum unit on an interim basis.” Green will remain with GSUSA, as Director for the Human Resources curriculum.
