    LOYOLA UNIVERSITY NEW ORLEANS:  Founded in 1912, Loyola’s rich history as a Jesuit and Catholic institution of higher education is grounded in intellectual rigor and reflects the 450-year old Ignatian tradition.   Jesuit education is a call to human excellence, to the fullest possible development of all human qualities.  The Jesuit vision of education implies that students learn how to think critically, examine attitudes, challenge assumptions, and analyze motives.  At Loyola University New Orleans, education goes beyond the physical walls of a classroom and lectures, offering a myriad of unique opportunities to more than 2,600 undergraduate students and 1,200 graduate students and allowing them to learn and to thrive both in New Orleans and around the world.  Students are attracted to Loyola University New Orleans from 46 states and 49 countries. There are five Colleges within the university (Business, Humanities and Natural Sciences, Law, Music and Fine Arts, Social Sciences) offering over 80 undergraduate majors/concentrations and 32 graduate and professional programs. Five new programs have been instituted this fall to prepare students for some of the fastest growing industries in New Orleans, including:  Visual communication, food studies, computer science, computer science with game programming, and interaction design.

    Loyola combines the academic excellence of its faculty and academic programs as well as its commitment to a robust co-curricular program that fosters individual student success in a positive learning environment.  Its goal is to develop students into a new generation of leaders who possess a love for truth, the critical intelligence to pursue it, and the courage to articulate it.

    The University is presently completing its strategic plan, Transforming Loyola 2020, focusing on creating a learner-centered community through robust experiential learning, career development, and mentoring programs, all infused by the cultures of New Orleans and Jesuit ideals and Ignatian pedagogy.  A multi-million dollar expansion and renovation of the University’s largest academic building, Monroe Hall, has been completed with state of the art science, graphic arts, and theatre laboratories coming on line.

    Morningside College invites applications and nominations for a Vice President for Marketing.  The successful candidate will eat, breathe and sleep innovation and best practices in marketing as they capture and chronicle the energy of Morningside’s students, faculty and alumni and their achievements.  The Vice President will join in the welcoming culture of Morningside; partner with key members of the community in seeking pathways to attract additional students in the College’s undergraduate, adult part-time, and graduate programs; as well as launch initiatives designed to spotlight the College’s role as a strong regional resource.

    Morningside College is a complex institution that serves students seeking varying educational paths.  Just two years before its 125th anniversary celebration in 2019, Morningside’s enrollment is nearing 3,000 students and consists of close to 1,300 mostly traditional age undergraduates; 1,500 classroom teachers seeking an M.A.T. degree or various endorsements; almost 100 registered nurses seeking the MSN degree; and 30 nontraditional working adults in the Organizational Management program completing their bachelor's degrees. Morningside College’s enrollment has more than tripled in size in the past two decades and is poised for additional growth.  Morningside intends to strengthen its presence as a strong regional resource in the tri-state area of Iowa, Nebraska and South Dakota, known as “Siouxland”.

    This new Vice President will benefit from President Reynders’ recently formed “Innovation Idea Group”, an ongoing committee of board members, alumni, faculty and staff charged with investigating, promoting, designing and bringing about change and new ideas. The initiative has emerged from a year-long, campus-wide conversation focused on prioritization which has strengthened Morningside’s financial base, refocused resources on existing programs and new areas of growth, and enhanced the overall student experience.

          Administer budget of $300,000; stretching creatively and with a bottom-line interest in achieving maximum ROI of marketing investments;

          In addition, collaborate with the Vice President for Enrollment and Student Affairs in administering undergraduate marketing budgets (separate from the marketing budget).  Assist by offering expertise in vetting and exploring key external partnerships;

          Strengthen individual pipelines for varying graduate and adult programs through coordinated marketing efforts reflecting up-to-date practices;

          Infuse technology into Morningside’s outreach to prospective students and alumni;

          Establish thorough and widely accepted college policies governing marketing and communications and relay those policies to all divisions and departments of the college;

          Advise faculty and administrators about promotional strategies for major events and new programs using direct mail, print and electronic communications, and media advertising;

          Increase the visibility of Morningside College and implement strategic plans for marketing through print and electronic media; take initiative to discover stories that support the marketing plan and work with staff to impact strategic media placement.

A bachelor’s degree is required; an advanced degree is preferred.  In addition, candidates should demonstrate:
