The University of Massachusetts Boston, a distinguished urban public research university, seeks an innovative leader to serve as vice chancellor for enrollment management (VCEM). The successful candidate will work closely with Chancellor J. Keith Motley and other campus leaders to create a more integrated and robust enrollment function aimed at strategically positioning the university for future success. The new VCEM will provide critical leadership in meeting the university’s strategic enrollment goals, helping to attract and retain a talented and eager student body and in aligning both with the university’s anticipated long-term growth. UMass Boston, which has eleven colleges and schools and is Carnegie-classified as a research/high university, is located in one of the intellectually richest and most culturally diverse cities in the world. Offering more than 300 graduate and undergraduate degree and certificate programs at all levels, the university enrolls more than 16,000 students. The VCEM will provide oversight of and coordination among the Undergraduate Admissions Office, the Student Financial Aid and Scholarships Office, the Veterans’ Affairs Office, and the Office of the University Registrar. The VCEM analyzes enrollment data, develops policy for the division, oversees the budgets and personnel of the division’s departments, and leads and serves on campus committees. The VCEM also insures compliance with federal, state, and university regulations, and oversees comprehensive services for students and the campus community throughout the recruitment, retention, admission, and enrollment processes. The position requires strategic vision, change-management expertise, and in-depth knowledge of emerging national trends and issues facing higher education enrollment functions. The new VCEM will be a leader who can motivate and manage staff committed to academic excellence, and can develop and implement innovative, state-of-the-art enrollment strategies that involve the entire university. A minimum of five years of experience in leading a successful enrollment-management operation, or related experience, is required; and a master’s degree is strongly preferred.
