Vice President for Enrollment
Carroll University invites nominations and applications for the position of vice president for enrollment. Reporting to the president, the VPE will be Carroll’s chief enrollment officer, providing strategic leadership to all aspects of enrollment management for the university. The new vice president will lead and manage an enrollment division with responsibilities in traditional and international undergraduate admissions, transfer/non-traditional admissions, an expanding program of graduate admissions, financial aid, and an Office of Student Success. Experience that may not be conventional at small independent colleges/universities will also be welcomed, including familiarity with for-profit enrollment practices and on-line learning.
This is a transformative leadership opportunity in which a new VPE will have university-wide impact on the welfare of Carroll’s future. Central to the position’s success will be the VPE’s ability to think strategically, to integrate all aspects of enrollment management operations into an effective whole, and to work collaboratively across all university constituencies. While meeting annual enrollment targets will remain a primary responsibility, collaboration with others will be essential in influencing student success, retention and persistence, graduation rates, financial aid modeling and planning, branding, and marketing.
