VICE PRESIDENT FOR ENROLLMENT MANAGEMENT
Ohio Wesleyan University seeks a strategically-minded, visionary leader to serve as the Vice President for Enrollment Management.
Ohio Wesleyan University is a selective, nationally-ranked, residential liberal arts college of 1,600 students founded in 1842 and located on 200 beautiful acres in Delaware, Ohio. The charming city of Delaware retains its small-town qualities while benefiting from its close proximity to downtown Columbus, just 30 minutes from campus. It is situated in Delaware County, which is among the top 20 fastest-growing areas in the country.
The OWU community is active and engaged, and its faculty, staff, and students share informed opinions and ideas in rich campus conversations. Ohio Wesleyan’s historic commitment to “practical idealism” affirms that an education that blends theory and practice, thought and action, inquiry and engagement, and the campus and the world has the power to transform the lives of students by equipping them to become leaders who have a compelling impact on the world in which they will live and work. The majority of Ohio Wesleyan students participate in “The OWU Connection,” a personalized and expertly-guided four-year program that includes a guaranteed signature experience – travel, research, or internship – and opportunities to create a degree plan from more than 90 academic majors and 60 minors.
Reporting to the President, this cabinet- level position will serve as the University’s chief enrollment officer with key responsibilities for recruiting and enrolling a highly talented, academically driven, and diverse student body. The Vice President for Enrollment Management will provide leadership and mentoring to a staff of 22 and work closely with faculty, staff, trustees and alumni on strategic planning, student recruitment, financial aid programs, and various other areas to enhance and encourage student recruitment, retention, and growth.
The Vice President will be a collaborative, decisive, dynamic, confident, and imaginative leader with a proven track record of attracting and retaining high-achieving and high-potential students and a record of success in shaping the academic profile of an entering class. Candidates for this position should be informed about best practices in enrollment management and tenacious in meeting enrollment and net revenue goals.
