Washington College, Chestertown, MD
Vice President for Enrollment Management

closing: May 12, 2017

Washington College, a selective national liberal arts college located in Chestertown, Maryland, seeks an enterprising and creative Vice President for Enrollment Management to join a transformational leadership team with bold ambitions for the College. The Vice President for Enrollment Management will report to the President. Sheila C. Bair, the former chair of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) and a renowned advocate for financial reform, serves as President of the College. Under her leadership, the College has made major advances in increasing access and affordability.
As the nation’s tenth oldest college and the first to be chartered in the newly independent United States, Washington College holds a significant place in the history of American higher education. The College remains defined by its close connection to America’s history, its location and environmental focus on the Chesapeake Bay, and a culture that fosters the values of a liberal arts education. Over the past two decades, Washington College has enjoyed increasing student enrollments, rising donor support and steadily increasing net assets, and has consistently achieved balanced operating budgets. Washington College has witnessed a remarkable transformation over the past fifteen years—virtually all academic buildings are newly constructed or recently renovated and fourteen new student residences and two new stadiums have been built. Chestertown, Maryland is a picturesque and historic town with numerous art galleries, great restaurants, farmer and artisan markets, and countless waterfront activities including sailing, fishing and kayaking. Annapolis, Maryland and Newark, Delaware are 45-minutes away and the cities of Baltimore, Washington D.C., and Philadelphia are less than a 90-minutes away.
The College has made a substantial investment in expanding the operating budget of the Admissions and Financial Aid Offices to include five new staff lines (an Executive Assistant to support the Vice President, an additional Assistant Director of Financial Aid, two new Admissions Counselors who are located remotely in California and southeast Georgia, and a Director of Visual Arts for Admissions) and relocated one existing Admissions Counselor to work full-time out of Baltimore, and invested $1.25 million in capital resources to create a new Admissions Visitors Center and to transform the visit experience for prospective students and their families. The result is a highly effective admissions and financial aid team that the new Vice President will be expected to support and build upon in the years to come. At her inauguration in September 2015, President Bair laid out her plans to help high-ability, high-need students succeed in college and beyond. George’s Brigade is a new initiative designed to meet the full financial need of first-generation college students who have a demonstrated record of high academic achievement. These students are permitted to apply in small groups, with the decision on admission made for the entire group. The first cohort joined the College in Fall 2016, and the second George’s Brigade cohort will enter in Fall 2017. The full incremental funding for these students four years, beyond the College’s traditional merit award for students of high ability, has been secured through new donations. President Bair has also led efforts to explore fresh approaches to controlling the cost of higher education and reducing the toll student debt takes on borrowers and their families. She instituted a one-year tuition freeze for students during the 2016-17 academic year. The freeze was just the beginning of the College’s exploration of new strategies and alternative funding models that will give certainty to families and protect them against unaffordable tuition hikes. Dam the Debt, funded through private donations, followed in May 2016, reducing the federally subsidized loan debt of 119 qualifying seniors by an average of $2,630. In December, when another eight seniors completed their graduation requirements early, we were able to provide additional scholarship money to pay down their federal loans by an average of $2,750. The President’s newest endeavor in affordability is FixedFor4. By keeping tuition constant throughout all four years that students attend Washington College, we are protecting families against inflation-driven tuition hikes and helping them know exactly how much their student’s college education will cost. Beginning next fall, tuition will increase 2 percent—to $43,702—to help cover the transitional cost of the program. That will be the fixed rate for freshmen who graduate in four years (the Class of 2021), as well as for students already enrolled. Beginning in the fall of 2018, tuition increases for freshman classes will be evaluated annually, but the rate, once set, will remain fixed for the students’ four years. The new Vice President will be an integral partner in the continued discussion, evaluation, and execution of these new approaches to tuition pricing and financing.

Responsibilities of the Position
The Vice President for Enrollment Management is responsible for all aspects of new student recruitment and enrollment, including the strategic awarding of financial aid. The Vice President is responsible for developing and implementing all aspects of a comprehensive, multi-year enrollment plan and for identifying and meeting annual enrollment and net tuition goals. By providing leadership and strategic direction to the admissions, financial aid and college relations and marketing offices, the Vice President is responsible for implementing and directing best practices and strategies that meet enrollment goals, reflect institutional values, and ensure a culture of continuous improvement throughout the Enrollment Management division. It is also vital that the Vice President be knowledgeable about international recruitment and prepared to expand and diversify our global recruitment efforts. The Vice President for Enrollment Management reports directly to the President and is a close partner in achieving the President’s goals for access, affordability, and selectivity. The Vice President also collaborates closely with colleagues across the institution including the Provost and Dean of the College and the Vice President for Finance and Administration. Reporting to the President, the Vice President for Enrollment Management will be an active member of the College’s senior leadership team and a key player in developing policies and tactics that support the College’s strategic priorities. This Vice Presidency offers an excellent opportunity for a strategic, forward-thinking enrollment professional to propel the College to higher levels of recognition and distinction.

Qualifications
A Bachelor’s degree (master’s preferred) and a minimum of eight years of progressive experience in enrollment management are required. The Vice President must be a highly efficient, effective, and results-oriented individual with strong business acumen, proven ability to lead and knowledge of best practices and current trends in the enrollment field. The position requires experience in management, strategic planning, admissions, financial aid, customer relations, and retention. The successful candidate will be a visionary leader and a strategic thinker. The position requires strong connotative skills and the ability to analyze issues critically.

Colgate University, Hamilton, NY
Assistant/Associate Dean of Admission and Coordinator of Multicultural Recruitment

closing: May 1, 2017

Colgate University, a highly selective, residential liberal arts university located in the picturesque central New York village of Hamilton, announces its search for an Assistant/Associate Dean of Admission and Coordinator of Multicultural Recruitment. Considered one of the nation's most beautiful campuses, Colgate takes pride in the active engagement of its students, and their outstanding scholarship in our local, national and global communities. With 2,900 undergraduates, it is one of the largest national liberal arts colleges. Admission to the university is highly competitive, with approximately 8,500 candidates applying each year. The university has enjoyed significant success in attracting students from diverse backgrounds; applications from multicultural students have led to a student body with 21.2 percent domestic students of color. Colgate's Office of Admission is a warmly supportive team: from first-year admission counselors to the Dean, there is an open-door culture and sense that no job is too big or too small for anyone. Responsibilities ranging from travel planning to application reading to event planning are executed in small teams that allow for leadership opportunities and professional development across the department.

Like all admission officers, the new Assistant/Associate Dean will travel up to 10 weeks per year to recruit students and represent the University, interview prospective students, conduct engaging information sessions, build relationships with high school counselors and community based organizations, thoughtfully manage recruitment territories, read and evaluate applications for admission, use relevant technology to aid and inform the work, attend and organize a variety of events for prospective and admitted students, and partner with colleagues across the University. As the Coordinator of Multicultural Recruitment, the new Assistant/Associate Dean will take a leadership role in communicating, recruiting, and enrolling underrepresented students. It is particularly important that he/she is able to clearly articulate the values and benefits of a liberal arts education and the opportunities that are available to students at Colgate in ways that are compelling and relevant to underrepresented, urban, and first-generation populations. He/she needs to be empathetic and supportive, as well as, strategic and analytical in his/her approach. The entire admission team is dedicated to access and multiculturalism, and consciously works towards supporting those aims, so the new coordinator will be far from alone in his/her endeavors. Aiding to these efforts is a dedicated financial aid staff and institutional policy of meeting 100% of demonstrated need for all admitted students.  Support for and the retention of underrepresented students is a Colgate-wide commitment. Brian Casey, currently in his first year as President of Colgate, has made inclusion and equity a priority for the University and an institution-wide evaluation is underway. The Coordinator of Multicultural Recruitment will partner with a number of colleagues across campus, but especially with The Director of First Generation Initiatives and the Office of Undergraduate Studies (OUS), a four-year program that provides support for students who have prevailed in the face of personal, economic, educational, cultural, or social challenges.

Collegewise, Westport, CT
College Counselor

closing: April 1, 2017

Do you think that finding, applying to, and getting accepted into college should be an exciting adventure for all students?
Do you believe that great college educations can be found at plenty of schools that aren’t prestigious?
Are you ready to change the way families approach the college admissions process?

If you’re nodding your head, you might enjoy being a college counselor at Collegewise. (Or you might just be someone who compulsively responds in the affirmative to any question.) We’re looking for someone with just the right combination of passion, personality, and pluck to join our office in Westport, CT. Prior experience in college counseling or admissions is a plus, but we’ll train the right person!

WHAT IS COLLEGEWISE?
Collegewise, a small but rapidly growing college counseling company, is trying to change college admissions. We do college counseling differently here. Our goal isn’t necessarily to get every kid who works with us into an Ivy League school. Instead, we show families just how many wonderful colleges there are while helping our students apply and get accepted to schools they’re excited to attend. We do it all with just the right mix of advice, encouragement, and occasional cheerleading to make the process exciting and enjoyable. We also speak in public, write, and constantly look for ways to spread good college planning information to anyone who needs it, whether or not they join our program.

WHAT DOES A COLLEGEWISE COLLEGE COUNSELOR DO?
As a college counselor, you will work with a caseload of 30–50 students—most of whom are juniors and seniors—to help them find and apply to the right colleges for them. To build your caseload, you’ll also speak in public and develop honest relationships with high schools and counselors in your community. You’ll work hard, sometimes in the evenings and on Saturdays during the busy fall season. But you’ll be helping kids and parents, working with smart, passionate people, and doing it all in an entrepreneurial environment that has absolutely no connection to US News rankings. Every college counselor who joins us completes an initial 40-hour training, followed by mentoring, support, and ongoing professional development. But we’ll also be looking for your ideas about how we can better accomplish all of the goals above. You wouldn’t be crossing over to the for-profit version of the dark side here, either. We have an excellent reputation with both high school counselors and admissions officers. In our spare time, our counselors volunteer with several organizations committed to improving access to higher education for under-resourced students. We present at NACAC and local ACACs, we recycle, and in Westport, we are really proud of the amazing families we serve. Yes, we’re biased, but really, this is a pretty great place to come to work every day. While Collegewise was founded in 1999, the Westport office opened in 2014 and has experienced fabulous growth. You’d be joining our director, Amy Chatterjee, a veteran counselor of 15 years, as well as an entire network of experienced Collegewisers across the country and learning from some of the best minds in college counseling. We hope to hear from you.

WHAT'S THE NEXT STEP?
If your interest is piqued, get to know us a little better on our website. Find out more about what we do, who you’d be working with, and what we believe. If you like what you read and think you could find a professional home here, please email a résumé and cover letter to jobs@collegewise.com, and use the subject line, “College Counselor: Westport, CT.” Like a great college essay, an effective cover letter should help us get to know who you really are. Don’t be afraid to be yourself—smart, thoughtful, or maybe even funny. Just don’t be generic. You might also consider checking out our five tips for job-seekers: http://wiselikeus.com/collegewise/2011/03/five-tips-for-job-seekers.html This position starts at $45-55K depending on experience, with room for future growth in both salary and responsibility. We’d like new hires to start in April, but we will adjust the start date to accommodate the right person. If you have questions about the job, please email us at the above address rather than call us. We promise to respond to you quickly. Thanks for reading our post. We’d love to hear from you, but if we don’t, we hope you find the perfect professional fit someplace else.

ABOUT COLLEGEWISE:
Collegewise, the nation’s largest college counseling company with over 20 offices around the USA, is out to change the way that families approach the college admissions process. We think this should be an exciting time for students and parents, not a stressful, anxiety-ridden rite of passage. And we believe that smart college planning information should be available to anyone who wants it, regardless of their ability to pay. Whether a family hires one of our counselors, reads our book, or just browses our blog where we give away free advice every day, we’ll be there injecting sanity and perspective into the process. https://collegewise.com
