    Rollins College: The Rollins campus is a beautiful 70-acre lakefront setting two blocks from downtown Winter Park, Florida. Led by President Grant Cornwell, Rollins College offers a variety of educational experiences at both the graduate and undergraduate level.  The undergraduate program is comprised of the College of Liberal Arts, which houses more than 30 undergraduate programs.  The Hamilton Holt School offers undergraduate and graduate evening programs for adult learners.  The Crummer Graduate School of Business has three distinctive MBA programs and an Executive Doctorate in Business Administration.

    The College’s unwavering commitment to excellence in teaching has been integral to the College’s mission since inception.  Today, that mission embraces educating students for global citizenship and responsible leadership, and empowering graduates to pursue meaningful lives and productive careers.  Within the undergraduate divisions of the College of Liberal Arts, Rollins introduced a groundbreaking general education curriculum in 2015, the Rollins Foundation in the Liberal Arts.  In keeping with the College’s mission to educate students to think critically across disciplines, this general education curriculum exposes students to the ways different areas of knowledge may reinforce and enrich one another.  All 36 majors and 52 minors reflect this foundation in the liberal arts.  

    The academic experience for undergraduate students is enhanced by opportunities for faculty-student research collaboration through the Rollins College Student –Faculty Collaborative Scholarship Program, which funds students and faculty who wish to collaborate on original scholarly work.    Also, nearly 70 percent of traditional undergraduate students study abroad.  Seventy-five percent of Rollins award-winning faculty have traveled abroad as part of an institutional program that provides regular travel grants.  Internship and community service opportunities are abundant in the Greater Orlando area.  For the fourth year in a row, Rollins College is one of the top producers of U.S. Fulbright Students among master’s institutions.  In 2015-16, six students were awarded Fulbrights, with five participating in the program.  “We are proud of the success of our students and honored that Rollins is once again among the top producers of Fulbright Students in the U.S.,” says Rollins President Grant Cornwell. “Our graduates’ contributions as Fulbrights demonstrate the importance of our mission to educate students for global citizenship and responsible leadership.”

    In the fall of 2015, Rollin’s total enrollment was 3,260, consisting of:  1,948 in the undergraduate program; 343 in Crummer; 739 in Holt undergraduate; and 230 in Holt graduate.  For the entering CLA first-year class of fall 2016, more than 5,400 applications were received.  The College accepted 60 percent of applicants, and 16 percent of accepted students enrolled.  Nearly half of CLA students are from Florida and one-quarter are from Mid-Atlantic or New England states.  The total CLA student body represents 41 states, one U.S. territory, and 59 foreign countries.  In 2016, 60 percent identified themselves as female, with 40 percent identifying male.  Approximately 80 percent of Rollins’ students receive financial aid, including institutional scholarships and grants.  

    Twenty-two men’s and women’s varsity teams compete in the NCAA Division II Sunshine State Conference (SSC).  For the second consecutive year, the SSC boasts an Academic Success Rate (ASR) of 86 percent, which is ranked second among all NCAA Division II conferences.  Rollins leads the SSC and ranks ninth nationally with a 92 percent ASR, 21 points above the national average.  In the spring of 2015, Rollins’ teams set a department record with an average GPA of 3.313, the 28th straight semester above a 3.0.  The “Tars” boasted 16 All-Americans and 44 Sunshine State Conference award winners, and a total of nine sports advanced to postseason play.

    Rollins is well resourced with an endowment of $350 million and an additional $100 million in income-producing real estate holdings, including the recently completed Alfond Inn at Rollins.  Designed in a distinctive Spanish Mediterranean style, Rollins is ranked #1 Most Beautiful Campus by the Princeton Review.  The Knowles Memorial Chapel, designed by world-renowned architect Ralph Adams Cram, and the Annie Russell Theatre are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.  Rollins College has been recognized with many awards and rankings.  Ashoka U, a social entrepreneurship organization, named Rollins a “Changemaker Campus” for its dedication to educating and graduating leaders who have a positive impact on the world.  Rollins is one of 30 institutions worldwide, the first liberal arts institution of the South, and the first college in Florida to join the Changemaker Campus Consortium.  The Corporation for National and Community Service has regularly named Rollins to the President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll with Distinction.

    Additional Rankings, Awards, and Recognition can be found here.

    Quality of work/Life:  Rollins employs 235 regular faculty and 500 regular staff, all engaged in a wide variety of student, administrative, and operational support occupations.  Rollins is committed to promoting and sustaining a diverse, supportive, and caring work environment in which employees can work, learn, and grow.  As an indication of this commitment, the College offers flexible work scheduling practices and family-friendly employee benefits, which extend to domestic partners.  In recognition of its efforts, Rollins has consistently been recognized by the Orlando Sentinel as one of the Top 100 family-friendly workplaces in the Orlando area and has been named to the “Great Colleges to Work For” Honor Roll by the Chronicle of Higher Education for seven consecutive years.

Winter Park offers a full range of residential choices, a premier central business district, incredible restaurants and its own hospital.  The newly established SunRail train passes blocks from the Rollins campus.

    Being so close to Orlando, with its growing population of 1.2 million, gives Rollins students vast opportunities for internships and experiential learning.  For families, Orlando is a gold mine, starting with internationally known parks and attractions including Walt Disney World and Universal.  From attending professional sports events - such as Orlando Magic basketball, Orlando City Lions, or Orlando City Pride soccer - to exploring Loch Haven Park - the hub of Orlando’s blossoming arts scene - to catching a concert at Amway Center, there are always activities available for active individuals and families.  Outdoor enthusiasts will find abundant opportunities year round in the Florida sunshine at the hundreds of lakes, rivers, and springs in the Greater Orlando area.  Atlantic Ocean beaches are just an hour away.

    Dean of Admission

    SMU seeks a dynamic, analytical, and goal-oriented leader for the position of Dean of Admission. The Dean will manage the undergraduate recruitment and admission functions of the University at a time of enrollment success unprecedented in the University’s history.  Reporting to the Associate Vice President for Enrollment Management in the Office of the Provost, the Dean will serve as an integral member of the leadership team for the Division of Enrollment Services, which encompasses Undergraduate Admission, Financial Aid, University Registrar, and InterTerm Programs. This position requires energy, innovation, and a commitment to the intellectual growth and diversity of a residential, academic community.

    A highly-ranked private university with an enrollment of 11,700 students in seven degree-granting schools, SMU is a global research university with a liberal arts tradition.  Distinguished faculty inspire what the University refers to as “intellectual entrepreneurship” – using varied academic interests and knowledge in order to find creative solutions for today’s social, technological, economic, and artistic challenges.  SMU alumni are noted for professional and intellectual success in a competitive and diverse world.

    SMU is the preeminent university in North Texas and is located near the heart of Dallas, an international economic and cultural powerhouse.  Over half of its 6,400 undergraduate students come from outside Texas, eight percent are international and approximately 27 percent come from historically underrepresented ethnic and racial backgrounds. Like many leading universities in the United States, SMU values its Methodist heritage but welcomes students, faculty and staff of all backgrounds, encouraging both academic and personal inquiry without religious expectations.

    Strong improvements in academic profile, selectivity, retention, graduation, and other factors have helped the University to achieve its highest ranking of #56 among national universities in U.S. News & World Report for 2017, and it strives to reach the top fifty. Through careful strategy and innovation, SMU intends to broaden and strengthen both its first-year and transfer applicant pools in order to continue to improve academic profile, selectivity, diversity and retention as the University becomes a more prominent player in the national education landscape.


    The Dean of Admission will lead and manage the undergraduate recruitment and admission of first-year, transfer, and international students. This role also oversees the graduate application processing center and a central call center for the Division of Enrollment Services. Charged with oversight of a talented staff of 41 professionals, including seven direct reports, the Dean will consult with the Associate Vice President for Enrollment Management to implement best practices in recruitment and admission as they imagine and achieve a shared vision of enrollment success. The Dean will work closely with academic recruiters in the schools as well as other faculty and administrators in responding to a complex set of admission, financial aid and academic goals.

    The Dean will often provide an inspirational presence for staff and will represent SMU to external audiences including prospective students, their family members, and high school counselors in the US and abroad. The Dean will foster SMU’s commitment to diversity.  He or she will motivate, lead, and encourage a team with empathy and clarity, and will personally maintain a role in recruitment activities, alongside the staff.

    Roger Williams University, located on the coast of Bristol, Rhode Island is a forward-thinking private university with 45 undergraduate majors spanning the liberal arts and the professions, where students become community-minded citizens through project-based, experiential learning. With small classes, direct access to faculty and boundless opportunity for real-world projects, RWU students develop the ability to think critically while simultaneously building the practical skills that today's employers demand. In the four years since launching its signature Affordable Excellence initiative, the University has established itself as a leader in American higher education by confronting the most pressing issues facing students and families - increasing costs that limit access to college, rising debt and the job readiness of graduates. In addition to its 4,000 undergraduates, RWU is home to more than a dozen graduate programs, a thriving School of Continuing Studies based in Providence, as well as Rhode Island's only law school.


    RWU invites nominations and applications for the position of Vice President for Enrollment Management and Marketing to provide leadership and vision in the areas of Undergraduate Admission, Graduate Admission, Marketing Communications and Financial Aid.
