Avila University announced the appointment of Timothy Klocko as vice president for finance and administration. In this role, Klocko will oversee all aspects of the financial life of the University, providing management and direction for Avila’s financial activities.

Klocko brings more than 30 years in leadership in higher education, including extensive experience overseeing finance, accounting, business operations, strategic budgeting and planning, facilities, campus safety, human resources and auxiliary enterprises.

Prior to joining Avila, Klocko served as vice president for finance and administration at Stephens College in Columbia. In two tenures at Stephens, he streamlined financial management systems and established a data-driven approach to financial well-being.

“We’re very pleased to be welcoming Tim to Avila in this important role,” said Avila President Ron Slepitza, Ph.D., CSJA. “In a rapidly changing higher education economy, his experience navigating tricky financial situations for numerous institutions will put Avila in a position of preparedness and strength for years to come.”

Between his appointments at Stephens, Klocko served in a vice president role at Sweet Briar College of Sweet Briar, Virginia and Thomas University in Thomasville, Georgia. In the former, he served as part of the first administration after Sweet Briar’s restoration, working with partners to quickly create a strategic, sustainable plan for the college. Prior to serving in administrative roles, he taught accounting.

“I am excited to join Avila University and apply the skills and lessons I’ve gained throughout my professional career,” Klocko said. “I admire the mission of the University, specifically its diversity and the opportunities it provides to groups underrepresented in higher education. I hope my varied background and extensive experience will be beneficial to Avila.”
