    Drew University invites nominations and applications for the position of Vice President for Enrollment Management and Dean of College Admissions.  

    Serving as the leader in the Division of Enrollment Management, the Vice President and Dean will oversee undergraduate admissions for the College of Liberal Arts; admissions for the Caspersen School of Graduate Studies and the Drew Theological School; the University’s Financial Aid Office; and the athletic department.  

    As a result of effective university-wide enrollment efforts and under the leadership of retiring Senior Vice President, Dr. Robert J. Massa, Drew has experienced strong positive change in all enrollment indicators since 2015.  Today, the University enrolls 1,734 undergraduate students and 599 graduate and Theological School students. The Vice President and Dean will build on this success by sustaining and growing undergraduate enrollment, guiding efforts in graduate admissions stemming from school and division partnerships and synergies, and continuing to engage Drew’s impressive faculty and staff in on-going collaborative efforts toward creating an enrollment and retention culture.

    The Vice President and Dean will report to President MaryAnn Baenninger and serve as a member of the President’s Cabinet, taking a key leadership role within this strong and effective body. 



    OPPORTUNITIES AND PRIORITIES

    The Vice President for Enrollment Management and Dean of College Admissions should be a bold and experienced professional with the expertise to:

    Create and drive a strategic vision for enrollment.  Develop a roadmap for further strengthening Drew’s enrollment at the graduate and undergraduate levels. Consult with stakeholders to build managerial structures and practices that will best support this effort.

    Optimize the College’s internal partnerships. Work cooperatively within Drew’s collegial community (faculty, staff, current students, alumni, administration, board of trustees) to grow a heightening interest in enrolling students who will prosper from Drew’s academic, athletic and co-curricular environment. 

    Build on current enrollment success and momentum.  Attract and enroll a greater number of students who view Drew University as their first choice. Continue to elevate the academic quality and diversity of the applicant pool and student body. Increase the percentage of students who remain through graduation. Help identify additional undergraduate and graduate initiatives that will support enrollment goals and respond to student demand. Equip staff in the enrollment division with support, clarity, and professional development.

    Develop predictive enrollment and financial aid models and educate the University community about options and opportunities. Promote the use of data and analysis in making decisions about objectives regarding quality, retention and net tuition revenue.

    Deploy financial aid resources strategically for new and continuing students. Evaluate the effectiveness of the University’s financial aid offer and devise strategies for using institutional resources most effectively. Ensure compliance with all state and federal agencies. Emphasize continued customer-service approaches.  Remain on the cutting edge for financial literacy.

    Strengthen a unified approach to marketing a liberal arts institution, a graduate school and a theological school, all with a rich history. Possess a robust understanding of regional, national and international enrollment environments for undergraduate and graduate students, including international pathway programs administered in a joint venture between Drew and INTO University Partnerships.  Have an appreciation for an educational structure that includes a traditional campus, as well as market-sensitive programs for graduate students.  Develop and communicate consistent and unified messages about the College in partnership with the Office of Communications and Marketing.  Lead a conversation for and about Drew across traditional recruitment channels as well as media and social channels.

    Evaluate existing technology and information systems used in the enrollment areas.  Be current regarding the use of technology in recruitment and retention. Draw on data to guide discussions, internally and externally, about trends, market development, and tracking successful initiatives. 

    Champion the efforts of Drew’s coaches and athletics staff.  Support NCAA Division III athletics with overall vision and ability to oversee staff supervision, budgetary and facilities management. Understand the importance of athletics as part of the overall recruitment plan.

    Capitalize on the advantages inherent in the University’s New Jersey location with proximity to New York City.  Continue to build partnerships with nearby businesses, non-profit agencies, churches and schools that provide considerable advantages to Drew’s students. Champion our unique offerings such as our New York semesters and our new Launch curriculum.  Enhance awareness of these benefits among prospective students, their families, and the wider public.

    The University

    Drew University, a Phi Beta Kappa liberal arts university, includes the College of Liberal Arts, the Drew Theological School and the Caspersen School of Graduate Studies. Drew is located on a beautiful, wooded, 186-acre campus in Madison, New Jersey, a thriving small-town that is a 50 minute train ride to New York City. It has a total enrollment of more than 2,300 students and has 148 full-time faculty members, 99% of whom hold the terminal degree in their fields. The Theological and Caspersen Schools offer master’s and doctoral degrees, and the College of Liberal Arts confers bachelor’s degrees in 34 disciplines.

    Drew is dedicated to exceptional faculty mentorship, a commitment to connecting the campus with the community and a focus on experiential learning. A particularly noteworthy example for undergraduates is the Charles A. Dana Research Institute for Scientists Emeriti (RISE), home of 2015 Nobel Prize Winner for Medicine and Drew Fellow William Campbell.

    Founded in 1867, the Theological School prepares scholars, ministers, educators, activists, and not-for-profit professionals for leadership in the academy, church, and civil society. The Caspersen School of Graduate Studies, founded in 1955, has an extraordinary configuration of six programs that focus on “the humanities at work.”  These programs put disciplinary and interdisciplinary content into academic, social, and professional contexts. In addition, new and enhanced programs in teacher education and in finance represent the start of the expansion in graduate programs that will be happening in the years ahead.

    The university also houses several interdisciplinary centers, including the Center for Civic Engagement, the Center on Religion, Culture & Conflict, the Center for Holocaust/Genocide Study and the Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey, an independent professional theater, as well as the United Methodist Archives and History Center, home to a rare 1611 printing of the King James Bible. In addition, the Rose Library has one of the country’s leading concentrations of materials on American novelist Willa Cather.  

    Drew has established a distinctive Launch Program for undergraduate students, designed to help them build their brand by synching career development with rigorous academics and powerful community.  Each student is guaranteed two real-world learning experiences (internships, research, city semesters or more), and each student will be guided by a team of mentors, including: faculty, career, peer, alumni and/or industry advisors. Even before this innovative program began, Princeton Review twice saluted Drew as one of “50 Colleges that Create Futures” and “The Best 384 Colleges”.  

    In 2018, Drew rolled back its college tuition by 20% to provide an education that is both affordable and valuable.  Nearly $35 million in institutional scholarship and need-based grants are available.  With 94% of Drew University graduates employed or in graduate school six months after graduation, 94% of Drew students graduate in four years or less.  The class profile for the most recent entering class is strong, with the average GPA a 3.54 and average SAT 1235. Students hail from 31 states and 18 countries, and their ethnicity is 51% White, 19% Hispanic, 8% Black, 5% Asian and 17% other.

    More than 25% of the student body are athletes, participating in twenty NCAA Division III sports in the Mid-Atlantic and Landmark conferences. There are six New York City programs (Semester on Contemporary Art, Semester on United Nations, Semester on Communication and Media, The Wall Street Program, Semester on Social Entrepreneurship, Program on New York Theatre); city programs in London and Washington, D.C.; more than 60 study abroad opportunities in 42 countries; and thousands of internships.

    Loyola University Maryland is a Jesuit, Catholic university committed to the educational and spiritual traditions of the Society of Jesus and to the ideals of liberal education and the development of the whole person. Accordingly, the University will inspire students to learn, lead, and serve in a diverse and changing world.

      Loyola University Mission Statement



    Loyola University Maryland is a Jesuit, Catholic university of approximately 4,000 undergraduate students and 1,900 graduate students committed to the educational and spiritual traditions and ideals of the Society of Jesus: an emphasis on academic excellence, emphasis of the liberal arts, and cura personalis—the development of the whole person. Founded in 1852 in Baltimore, the university’s main campus now sits in a residential neighborhood on the north side of the city, approximately 15 minutes from downtown Baltimore.  There are two graduate centers located in Timonium, Md. and Columbia, Md., and the Loyola Clinical Centers, located in the York Road neighborhood, adjacent to the main campus.  

    Loyola seeks a dynamic, experienced Vice President of Enrollment Management who will report to the Provost, serve as a member of the President’s cabinet, and oversee undergraduate and graduate admissions, financial aid, and enrollment planning.  As an effective collaborator with colleagues across campus, the successful candidate will develop a strategic enrollment management plan and play an integral role in policy decisions related to student enrollment, retention, and the goals and objectives of the university.  Supervising a staff of approximately 40 professionals, the Vice President will work closely with faculty, staff, alumni, and students to attract students from diverse backgrounds and growing markets who will excel in the classroom and contribute meaningfully to the life of the campus and local community.

    Over the last 25 years, enrollment has more than doubled in size and has been stable in recent years, although Loyola experienced a small decline in enrollment in 2017-18, as have many colleges and universities nationally.  Aware of the challenges facing higher education, Loyola launched its strategic plan in 2017, The Ignatian Compass, and notes in particular, “We must build upon the culture of enrollment management that has been instilled throughout the campus community, expanding the mindset that “student recruitment is everyone’s responsibility” to develop a culture of engagement across all members of the community and all stakeholder groups….”

    When Father Brian Linnane, President of Loyola University Maryland, appointed Dr. Amanda Thomas as Vice President for Academic Affairs and Provost, he said, “The idea of a provost is not a new one for Loyola, although we have not had one in recent history. With our current opportunities and challenges, however, I feel confident that having a provost, rather than simply a vice president for academic affairs, will allow us to better coordinate our admission and academic efforts, offering a more cohesive, clearer vision for our university and allowing for greater synergies across divisions.”

    Provost Amanda Thomas began her Loyola career as assistant professor of psychology in 1991, became a full professor in 2002 and has served as department chair, associate dean of arts and sciences, associate vice president for graduate studies and dean of Loyola College of Arts and Sciences.  Thomas was appointed interim vice president for academic affairs, and in September 2018 was appointed Provost and Vice President of Academic Affairs, fulfilling Father Linnane’s vision for Loyola in this new alignment.


    GOALS AND OPPORTUNITIES

    The successful candidate for Vice President of Enrollment Management will:

    • Build upon the current strategic plan to assure Loyola’s strength and mission remain consistent with the Jesuit educational philosophy to recruit and enroll talented students from diverse backgrounds.
    • Communicate an enthusiasm for the Jesuit mission and value of a Loyola education to prospective students and families persuasively and authentically.
    • Understand the complexity of financial aid and lead the institution to a financial aid program that is viable for families and sustainable for the institution.
    • Serve as a collaborative partner on the president’s cabinet to bring innovation and creativity to enrollment management.
    • Serve as a transparent and clear communicator of the work and goals to be achieved; provide guidance and support to a diverse staff, build on the strong operation and morale enjoyed by the department, and encourage and return feedback for success.
    • Partner with constituencies across campus to continue a culture where all are engaged in enrollment and retention efforts.




    QUALIFICATIONS AND EXPERIENCE

    Loyola seeks candidates with:

    • A record of success in achieving and maintaining enrollment goals for new and continuing students, including undergraduate, graduate, and international students.
    • Strategic understanding of financial aid leveraging along with the knowledge of successful operation in financial aid for prospective and continuing students at the undergraduate and graduate levels.
    • Ability to demonstrate the most effective and situational solutions in enrollment management in both undergraduate and graduate school enrollment.
    • Facility for enrollment systems including CRMs (Slate is the CRM in use at Loyola) as well as a fundamental understanding of student information systems.
    • Understanding of marketing strategies and channels to target potential students, traditional and graduate.
    • Strength in applying data analytics to the strategic deployment of resources, both human and financial, to the recruitment and enrollment of students likely to succeed in Loyola’s educational environment.
    • Commitment to Loyola’s mission of diversity and inclusion, with an interest in working toward a more just and equitable world.
    • Excellent communication and interpersonal skills.
    • Evidence of strong management skills.
    • Ability to serve as a compelling and dynamic representative of Loyola to internal and external audiences.
    • Understanding of current market trends and in turn, the dexterity to provide the president’s cabinet with pertinent enrollment data to inform institutional priorities and initiatives.
    • Competency to fully inform and utilize faculty appropriately in the recruitment process.
    • A personal style that is genuine, approachable, engaging, and committed to providing strong leadership that will continue to unite and strengthen the enrollment management division and sustain the high morale enjoyed by the team.
    • The capacity to work in a collaborative and relationship-building environment that Loyola values.
    • Consistent demonstration as an ethical, articulate, and hardworking professional.
    • An advanced degree is preferred; a bachelor’s degree is required.



    CAMPUS AND STUDENT LIFE 

    When it opened in 1852, Loyola (then College) was located in downtown Baltimore.  The campus was comprised of two large city townhouses and enrolled only men until 1971 when the university became coeducational, joining with Mount Saint Agnes College.   In 1921, Loyola established the Evergreen campus—the College of Arts and Sciences—on the north side of the city with a Tudor mansion as the centerpiece. The campus is now a 79-acre campus of academic, athletic and administrative buildings and student residences where 84% of the student body live. The graduate centers, currently located in two nearby suburbs, Timonium and Columbia, are easily reached from the Evergreen campus.  

    Numerous clubs and organizations are available to engage the curiosity and passions of Loyola students.  Over 80% of the student body takes part in service on campus and to the Baltimore community under the auspices of the Center for Community Service and Justice (CCSJ).  Aligned with the mission of Loyola itself, the CCSJ aims to “engage students and faculty to serve, learn, and lead for a more just and equitable world.” Loyola’s commitment to offering its students enriching international experiences is best exemplified by the number of student who study abroad for a semester or a year, currently at 60%.

    Loyola University Maryland has a robust financial aid program with 90% of students receiving grant or scholarship aid.  On average, the university meets 90% of students’ need.  Thirteen percent of students are Pell eligible.  

    A large percentage of students (81%) come from out of state and the gender ratio is 42% male, 58% female.  Seventy-five percent of enrolled undergraduate students are Catholic.

    In a collection of essays from members of the Class of 2021 to “New Hounds” in the Class of ’22, student Kelly Pease, self-identified as “shy” wrote:

    “As I reflect on my first year so far, I definitely have had to overcome some extra challenges that I wasn’t expecting. Yet, through an amazing faculty, administration, students, athletics, classes, and programs, Loyola has met, if not exceeded, all of my expectations. Loyola truly delivers. The University’s strong Jesuit values make the Loyola experience very special. Are you up for the challenge?”



    ATHLETICS

    Loyola, known as the Greyhounds, is a member of the Patriot League, considered to be the most academically selective athletic association outside the Ivy League.  Loyola is a NCAA Division I school and fields 17 sports and 22 club sports, best known for its soccer and lacrosse programs.  The university does not offer football.  

    Opened in 2010, the Ridley Athletic Complex has been noted as one of the besta premium examples of  a collegiate sports venues in the nation. The stadium seats 6,000 spectators and serves as the home to men’s and women’s lacrosse and soccer teams.  The athletic facilities are complemented by the Reitz Arena for basketball and volleyball, The Mangione Pool at the Fitness and Aquatics Center, and the Loyola/Johns Hopkins Track and Field Facility.


    ACADEMICS

    The academic heart of Loyola University Maryland is to prepare students to “learn, lead, and serve.”  There are over 30 majors and 60 minors with the largest concentration of student majors in Business and related fields, Communications and Journalism, Biology, Psychology, and Speech Language Hearing Sciences. Loyola offers 25 graduate programs, with the largest enrollments in the School of Education.  There are three schools within the undergraduate university:  Loyola College of Arts and Sciences, the School of Education, and the Sellinger School of Business and Management.  The student/faculty ratio at Loyola is 11:1 and the average class size is 20.  

    Over 60% of students participate in study abroad programs in more than 20 countries.  Programs range from a single semester (usually in the junior year and most common) or full year, to summer and holiday tour programs.  There are programs taught in English as well as total language immersion programs.  Students are encouraged to begin planning early for their study abroad experience, particularly those majoring in business, math, or science.  There are study abroad opportunities available for all majors. 

    Messina is Loyola’s signature first year program, a living and learning program serving as a foundation for student success at Loyola and well beyond.  The Messina program includes two linked courses, one each semester, connected by one of four themes.  The student’s advisor teaches one of the two classes.  Enrichment opportunities and outside activities further enhance the Messina Program and students live in proximity to their seminar classmates as an opportunity to build deep connections with other students and experiences.  

    Messina allows students to explore not only their own passions and intellectual interests but provides a network of encouragement and support to explore the interconnectedness of disciplines and experiences.  Students are given access to many opportunities on campus, in the local and global communities, and Loyola students are prepared with the capacity “to learn, lead and served in our diverse changing world.”
