DepartmentEnrollmentOverview

Ursinus College, a national residential liberal arts institution well known for a pioneering curricular philosophy that fuses the academic and residential experience, invites inquiries and applications for a collaborative, creative, and bold leader to join this exceptional campus community as vice president for enrollment management. With the enthusiastic support of Ursinus’ new president, Robyn E. Hannigan, this individual will collaborate with campus partners to successfully execute the College’s best-in-class Strategic Enrollment Management Plan (SEM), implemented several years ago to provide a highly integrated roadmap for the achievement of long-term enrollment goals.

Ursinus has been passionately dedicated to undergraduate-focused liberal education since its founding 153 years ago — a reason why Ursinus was one of the inaugural members of Colleges that Change Lives. As “a star of the first magnitude in the small galaxy of colleges,” Ursinus remains one of just 44 colleges nationwide that holds that unique designation. With 1,500 students located on a 170-acre campus, Ursinus is unwavering in its vision to make personalized, undergraduate education more valuable and accessible than ever. Ursinus is one of 10% of colleges and universities nationally to host a chapter of the national honor society, Phi Beta Kappa, and is just one of 40 U.S. colleges selected for the rigor of their liberal arts programs whose students are eligible to compete for Watson Fellowships for postgraduate travel and study. In addition, Ursinus is one of only 75 colleges designated to name Bonner Leaders, who set national examples in service and leadership. The College is located just 25 miles from Center City Philadelphia in the town of Collegeville. Montgomery County, in which Ursinus sits at the heart, is the ninth best place in the United States to raise a family according to Forbes.

The cornerstone of the Ursinus student experience is the distinctive curriculum known as “Ursinus Quest: Open Questions Open Minds.” Eagerly embraced by the Ursinus community as a unifying vision, this curriculum puts students in a position to contemplate a series of four enduring questions that not only guides their personal growth, but also provides a roadmap of how they can interact with one another in a meaningful way in the classroom, within their residence halls, and beyond. Anchored in the first-year Common Intellectual Experience (CIE), Quest continues a conversation between the disciplinary training of the major and the sense-making of an innovative, transdisciplinary common core that lasts all four years.

Reporting to President Hannigan, who began her tenure as 19th president of Ursinus on July 1, 2022, the vice president for enrollment management will provide the vision, inspiration, and strategy to promote the traditions and culture that are distinctly Ursinus, meet the enrollment goals for a talented and diverse student body that thinks critically and seeks to impact the world, and collaboratively chart the next chapter in the College’s future. The new vice president will be an exceptional leader with strong listening and communication skills and the willingness to engage others, particularly when implementing change. They will enthusiastically represent Ursinus, seeking opportunities to engage with thought leaders and external constituents on matters related to enrollment and the changing higher education landscape. They will possess a commitment to the values of a liberal education and its unique role in preparing students for a modern and rapidly evolving marketplace of ideas. They will have an unwavering commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion. Technical and strategic skills that provide inspiration and direction in enrollment planning, data analysis, student recruitment, admission, and financial aid are essential.

Ursinus College complies with all federal, state, and local statutes and regulations governing employment practices.

Ursinus College is an equal employment/affirmative action employer.

All employees are expected to abide by Ursinus College’s equal employment/affirmative action policy.

Specifically, in matters affecting employment and application for employment, the College will take affirmative action to ensure that each employee and applicant, regardless of race, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, religion, age, creed, ancestry, veteran status, marital status, or disability (except as limitations may be mandate by law) is accorded equal treatment with respect to terms and conditions of employment, including recruitment, hiring, placement, and opportunities for advancement.

Ursinus College is committed to the celebration of and respect for human diversity.  We believe that human beings derive meaning and purpose through their membership in groups as well as through their common humanity and their uniqueness as individuals.  Intellectual and personal growth are enhanced by understanding and appreciating the similarities and differences among groups and individuals.

The celebration of, and respect for, human diversity at Ursinus is based on the following:

  • The principles of freedom and the quality of individuals as expressed in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States.
  • The practical goal of preparing students to make significant contributions in an emerging global community.  All communities -- local, national and global -- are stronger and richer to the extent that individuals within them are able to communicate and to affirm life-enhancing values.
  • Individuals whose education has been grounded on mutual understanding and the celebration of human diversity are best prepared to contribute to the making of a just and equitable society.

This statement on human diversity should inform and guide the Ursinus College community as it establishes and implements educational and administrative policies and practices.  These ideals seem especially relevant to those policies and practices that touch upon race, ethnicity, age, religion, sexual orientation and gender, and all other aspects which tend to differentiate human groups.

In making this statement on human diversity, Ursinus College at the same time acknowledges the primary importance in an educational community of the diversity of ideas expressed in the pursuit of truth by all reasonable and free minds in an atmosphere of intellectual openness.

This statement on human diversity at Ursinus College has been developed in the context of the mission statement of the College and the institutional values generated by the mission.
