The College of Idaho seeks a vice president for enrollment to provide leadership and direction for the College’s recruitment program, to implement the strategic enrollment plan, and to participate in the President’s administrative leadership group.
Founded in 1891, The College of Idaho is the state’s oldest private college. It has educated some of the most accomplished graduates in Idaho, including seven Rhodes Scholars, three Marshal Scholars, and ten Truman and Goldwater Scholars. The College is located on a beautiful campus in Caldwell, Idaho, a half-hour drive from Boise. Its distinctive PEAK Curriculum challenges students to attain competencies in the four knowledge peaks of the humanities and fine arts, natural sciences and mathematics, social sciences and history, and a professional field, enabling them to graduate with an academic major and three minors in four years. The faculty forms a tight-knit community, emphasizing close faculty-student interaction while holding high expectations both for students and for themselves. Four of the previous six Carnegie Foundation Idaho Professors of the Year are members of the College’s faculty. The location is within easy reach of Idaho’s splendid mountains, providing opportunities for hiking, biking, skiing, and whitewater sports. For more information, visit www.collegeofidaho.edu .
