Vice President for Enrollment Management
New York Institute of Technology, a dynamic and highly ranked non-profit university anchored by two campuses in Manhattan and on Long Island, seeks an accomplished, data-informed and creative vice president for enrollment management.
Committed to educating the next generation of leaders and to inspiring innovation and advancing entrepreneurship, NYIT enrolls approximately 10,000 students on campuses in North America, China and the Middle East. As a forward-thinking institution NYIT has pioneered educational practices to serve student needs since 1955. NYIT offers 90 undergraduate, graduate and professional degrees in 50 fields of study and is home to students from more than 100 countries and from 50 states. Its seven schools and colleges include: School of Architecture and Design; College of Arts and Sciences, School of Engineering and Computing Sciences; School of Health Professions; School of Management; College of Osteopathic Medicine, and the newly formed School of Interdisciplinary Studies and Education. NYIT sponsors 12 NCAA Division II athletic programs and one Division I team.
In recent years the university has significantly improved campus facilities and academic programs while branding itself to raise its national and international profile. In 2006 the administration published a bold strategic plan to position NYIT as a model for a 21st-century global university. The updated plan, “NYIT 2030 version 2.0,” was published in 2015 to assess progress to date and re-state key priorities. NYIT now seeks to further transform its enrollment area to exemplify best-in-class practices both nationally and globally.
The vice president provides leadership, vision and expertise for enrollment initiatives at all NYIT campuses and champions NYIT’s goal to be a “student-centered” university. Reporting to the president, the vice president for enrollment management plays a major role in guiding the institution as a whole as a member of the president’s council, and he or she is a key senior administrator charged with achieving the university’s retention initiatives. The vice president oversees a staff of over 80 professionals across admissions; financial aid; graduate, international, and global recruitment; student communications; enrollment systems management; and the enrollment services center.
The new vice president will bring proven success in leading a sophisticated enrollment program and the personal qualities to support a high-quality and analytically rigorous enrollment program for a global university. For a talented, opportunistic, strategic and data-minded professional, this is a transformational position in which he or she will be able to lead NYIT to a new phase of success in envisioning, planning for, recruiting, admitting and graduating an increasingly talented and diverse student body.
The new vice president should have an appropriate advanced degree (doctorate preferred); the ability to work collaboratively and communicate effectively; exceptional analytic strength; strong financial management and budgeting skills; working knowledge of current academic and enrollment issues globally and nationally; experience in a culturally rich environment; and a strong commitment to providing excellent service to multiple and diverse constituents.
