The Catholic University of America:
The Catholic mind lives with faith, acts with purpose, and challenges with reason. The Catholic University of America serves as the one and only national university of the Catholic Church in the United States. Founded in 1887 as a papally-chartered graduate and research center, the University began offering undergraduate education in 1904. Catholic University consists of ten schools that award both undergraduate and advanced degrees: Architecture and planning, arts and sciences, business and economics, engineering, music, nursing, philosophy, professional studies, social work, and theology and religious studies. In addition, advanced degrees are also awarded in the School of Canon Law and the Columbus School of Law. Approximately 3,300 undergraduates combine a base curriculum in the liberal arts with more in-depth courses from their major fields of study. Undergraduate students in all majors can find semester, year- long or summer-only opportunities for study on five continents and at The Rome Center of The Catholic University of America and Australian Catholic University. The University also serves approximately 2,800 students seeking advanced degrees, including canonical degrees in canon law, philosophy, and theology. Theological College, the University seminary, prepares men for the priesthood who come from many dioceses of the United States. More than 90 percent of full-time, degree-seeking undergraduate students receive some form of financial aid. The Office of Student Financial Assistance awards more than $57 million in institutional grants and scholarships, as well as an additional $2 million in federal and state grant funds to undergraduate students. More than $29 million is processed in undergraduate educational loans. Many first-time visitors to campus are captivated by the University’s expansive 176 tree-lined, rolling acres, which contains 48 major buildings and residence halls, with more than 2,100 students living on campus. The campus is the largest and greenest of any college or university in Washington, D.C., and the skyline is dominated by the adjacent majestic Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, the largest Roman Catholic church in North America. Students have numerous opportunities for participation. There are over 90 clubs and organizations that thrive on campus. The Office of Campus Ministry offers numerous opportunities for faith development as well as community service and social justice education in the Washington, D.C. area, in the greater United States, and abroad. As one of the nation’s premier Division III athletic institutions, the Catholic University Cardinals attract student-athletes who make academics a top priority and value the opportunity to enrich that experience by competing in 19 intercollegiate and numerous club-level sports. Location: The location in Washington, D.C. offers Catholic University students and employees access to the nation’s capital as a learning laboratory, a world-class cultural center, and the heart of the nation’s political life. Located in the Northeast section of D.C., Catholic University is an integral part of the Brookland neighborhood. According to the Washington Post, “artists enliven this Northeast nook.” Recent development has added to the culture of the Brookland neighborhood, bringing a pedestrian avenue of artist studios, shops, restaurants, and new apartments. Between the Brookland and Edgewood neighborhoods that surround Catholic University, families can find a wealth of activities, from live music to nearby historic Bunker Hill Park, to educational and social opportunities, without stepping further into the heart of Washington D.C. More can be learned about the Brookland neighborhood through the Brookland Bridge, a blog started in 2012 to chronicle the happenings in this area. Catholic University’s own Metro stop makes it easy to get around the city and connect to everything that Washington D.C. has to offer. It is only a few stops away from Union Station, offering commuting services to surrounding states as well as full Amtrak transit services.

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. The Vice President must be a data-driven decision maker, an effective presenter and a negotiator who can build synergy and rapport among departments of the College. The successful candidate must understand and believe in the value of a liberal arts education and the mission of Washington College.

Earlham College
If every college and university sharpened young minds and consciences as effectively as Earlham does, this country would approach utopia. From Colleges that Change Lives Located in Richmond, Indiana, Earlham’s beautiful 800-acre campus includes Earlham College and also the Earlham School of Religion, affiliated with Earlham College. Nearly 600 of its acres are woods, streams, ponds, old fields and prairie used for scientific research and recreation. Earlham provides its undergraduate students with more than forty courses of study, and also offers a Masters of Art in Teaching.
Approximately 1,100 undergraduate students come from 47 states and 60 countries. The Earlham student body is among the nation’s most diverse of 100 nationally selective liberal arts colleges. U.S. News & World Report (2016) ranked Earlham sixth nationally in international diversity. According to the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) Earlham’s students are bright and hardworking, and report a larger number of books read, papers written, interaction with professors, and other predictors of successful educational outcomes than are reported elsewhere. Earlham is ranked in the 98th percentile among 1,533 institutions in the percentage of graduates who go on to receive Ph.D.’s.

Central to EPIC is CoLab, which is physical space created to encourage faculty and students to collaborate across the various centers and disciplines, including the Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation, Center for Social Justice, Center for Global Health, and Center for Global Education. Earlham’s successful results in integrative and collaborative education are evident through student award-winning work and scholar opportunities, including the following: Earlham students won the Hult Prize, the world’s largest student competition for social good, resulting in a $1 million award in start-up capital for their Magic Bus project; Earlham alumnus Margaret Hamilton ’58, a computer scientist who helped create the on-board flight software for NASA’s Apollo and Skylab missions and the Space Shuttle, received the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the highest civilian honor in the United States; Hashem Abu Sham'a ’17 has been selected as one of just three Rhodes Scholars by the Rhodes Trust for its inaugural Syria, Jordan, Lebanon and Palestine program.

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.
