    “Everything we do at Beloit College begins with students. Our mission statement, in this way, sets the tone. Everyone from our coaches to our faculty members, from the Board of Trustees to our admissions staff, is focused on supporting and enriching the student experience at Beloit College.

    “This singular focus, however, doesn’t translate to a cushy environment. That’s not Beloit. Ours is a community where challenges are confronted and risk taking rewarded; where close observation trumps 30,000-foot speculation. Where hands get dirty and boots too. Where information is passed along and processed, sifted and tested—and then, always, applied.

    “This is more unique than you might think.” 

    --Scott Bierman, President of Beloit College, in a recent letter for the Beloit College Magazine


    Beloit College invites nominations and applications for the position of Vice President for Enrollment. Reporting to, and partnering with, President Scott Bierman, the Vice President for Enrollment will be an active member of the college’s leadership team, a team that describes itself collectively as collaborative and inextricably linked, with “enormously high expectations” of themselves and for the college.  The Vice President works closely with colleagues in communications and marketing, finance and planning, development and alumni, academic affairs, athletics and student life, and will engage the trust and camaraderie of the community in moving Beloit College forward.  The college is poised for further success and seeks an outstanding and effective vice president to lead the charge in admissions and in the strategic oversight of financial aid strategy surrounding prospective and continuing students.    


    Mission Statement

    Beloit College engages the intelligence, imagination, and curiosity of its students, empowering them to lead fulfilling lives marked by high achievement, personal responsibility, and public contribution in a diverse society. Our emphasis on international and interdisciplinary perspectives, the integration of knowledge with experience, and close collaboration among peers, professors, and staff equips students to approach the complex problems of the world ethically and thoughtfully.



    Today, Beloit’s commitment to experiential, interdisciplinary and international learning is evidenced in the college’s “Liberal Arts in Practice” focus. Students are compelled – and required – to dig in to their studies; integrating knowledge with hands-on experience. They study, research, reflect and write—and all while intentionally testing and applying what they’re learning through a range of connected experiences. Beloit offers more than 50 majors, 30 minors, and a number of dual-degree and pre-professional programs. The average class size at Beloit is 15 and the student-to-faculty ratio is 11:1.

    Beloit students are distinguished by a commitment to independent thought, a concern for the common good, and a passionate, critical engagement with the world.  Eighty-four percent of the 1,200 students are from out-of-state representing nearly every state, the District of Columbia, and 40 countries. Twenty-six percent of the students are domestic minorities and seventeen percent come from countries other than the United States.

    Beloit College offers students an exceptional array of opportunities to study off-campus in countries across the world as well as domestically. Beloit students regularly conduct advanced research, run service projects, start businesses and organizations, take internships and field terms, do community outreach, produce plays and exhibits and events—on campus and around the world. These experiences, combined with academic rigor, provide a platform for meaningful jobs, graduate and professional studies, and rewarding lives.


    Student Life, Athletics, the Campus and the Community


    Eighty-five percent of degree-seeking students live on campus in the college’s residence halls and special interest houses.  The Beloit College campus consists of a wooded 65-acre main campus, a 26-acre athletic complex, and 89 acres devoted to other academic and research purposes.


    The college fields 17 NCAA Division III teams in the Midwest Conference. In any given season, approximately 25 percent of the student population is involved in intercollegiate athletics and Beloit’s student athletes consistently receive Academic All-American honors. A complete listing of intercollegiate sports can be found at   Club, intramural and recreational sports round out the athletic offerings that are available to students.

    The college will open a distinctive and award-winning recreation, athletic and student center in the fall of 2019.  This uniquely conceived center is located on campus in a repurposed century-old generating station on the Rock River.  Connected by a pedestrian bridge bringing campus and community together, it is appropriately named The Powerhouse  and includes an indoor track, a competitive pool, fitness spaces, a signature lecture hall/theater space, meeting rooms, a café and lounge/hang-out space.  The World Architecture Festival awarded The Powerhouse its top prize among 2018 Future Projects.

    The beautiful and historic city of Beloit is home to 37,000 residents as well as more than 88 industrial firms, 850 retail establishments, several corporate headquarters (Kerry Americas, ABC Supply, and Regal, among others), an Oakland Athletics-affiliated minor league baseball team, and several museums. More information regarding the city can be found at and


    In addition to meeting and exceeding enrollment and net tuition revenue goals that exemplify the college’s mission and the college’s business goals, success for the Vice President for Enrollment at Beloit College will be determined, in great part, by these factors:  vision, leadership, and the ability to establish strong strategic partnerships with the President, senior staff, college departments and programs, and the Board of Trustees. The Vice President should be a confident, strategic and energetic leader.


    The Vice President for Enrollment must be a consummate professional who embraces a team environment and works with colleagues in the spirit of partnership and transparency.

    Saint Michael’s College

    The only Edmundite College in the world, Saint Michael’s was founded in 1904 by the Society of Saint Edmund, an order of priests that came to Vermont from France.  With a tradition of taking on the most challenging tasks, the core tenets of the Edmundites are social justice, education, hospitality, spiritual renewal and pastoral ministry.  Although the Edmundites have transitioned the College’s administrative responsibilities to lay personnel over the last 25 years, their presence on campus has an important, spiritual and lasting impact on the life of the entire College community.  It is no surprise that Saint Michael’s offers a compelling mix of a world-class education grounded in an ethos of social justice and service.  Saint Michael’s is featured in the Princeton Review’s Best 384 Colleges recognized as a Green College.  Money magazine noted Saint Michael’s as one of the Top 50 Transformative Colleges, and Kiplinger’s ranks Saint Michael’s among the Best College Values.  

    The Academic Program

    Saint Michael’s students engage across a broad spectrum of subjects and the faculty is fully focused on teaching.  Classes are small (the student to faculty ratio is 13:1) and majors and minors are available in more than 40 fields of study.  These studies, coupled with experiential learning opportunities, international study, internships and collaboration with faculty on research projects, prepare students well for their first jobs and satisfying careers.  

    Saint Michael’s Academic Centers provide a vital and lively intellectual home where students, faculty, staff, and the community can connect for better understanding and interdisciplinary learning.  The Centers include the Edmundite Center for Faith and Culture, The Center for Women and Gender, The Edmundite Center for Peace and Justice, the Multicultural Center, The Humanities Center, and the VT EPSCoR Center for Workforce Development and Diversity.

    The graduate programs at Saint Michael’s include Clinical Psychology, Education, and TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages).  The graduate programs are small, flexible, affordable, and tailored to the goals of the graduate students.  

    Campus Life

    Our students can take advantage of enriching programs, athletic events, theater, the recreation and fitness centers, the beauty of the Burlington area and more.  The St. Mike's Adventure Sports Center is a great way to stay active and engage in the Saint Michael’s community. The program offers training and outings in kayaking, climbing, skiing/riding and mountain biking. In addition, the program offers training as an instructor in any of the activities offered and to the chance to be a member of the Adventure Sports Center staff.  Among the student activities is a unique and remarkable volunteer organization begun at Saint Michael’s in 1969 — the Fire and Rescue Squad.  An independent volunteer group of students, they have taken on the responsibility of serving the public 365 days per year, 24 hours a day by providing fire and emergency medical treatment both on campus and in the community.   

    Service is at the heart of a Saint Michael’s experience; nearly 70 percent of its students participate in Mobilization of Volunteer Efforts (MOVE), which exists to expand the concept of community service to embrace social justice and to emphasize our connectedness to the world, as defined by Catholic social teaching.

    Most students live on campus and housing is guaranteed for four years.  The options include over a dozen residence halls and townhouses.  

    Twenty-five percent of the St. Mike students play a varsity sport on one or more of the 21 varsity teams.  Saint Michael’s competes as an NCAA Division II institution.  Varsity sports include Alpine and Nordic skiing as well as ice hockey, and range from basketball and baseball to lacrosse and soccer, to name a few.  Student athletes at Saint Michael’s have a near 100 percent student-athlete graduation rate.  

    St. Mike’s is a green campus, and is committed to strengthening its obligation to a socially and ecologically responsible world.  The campus community works together to recycle, to compost, to refill and reuse water bottles, and to tend the Saint Michael’s Farm, an organic garden and farm stand operated during the growing season.
