    Since 1868, Bloomfield College has stayed at the forefront of innovation in higher education, providing the tools our students need to take their place as contributing and successful members of our society…

    Bloomfield College welcomes one of the most diverse student bodies in the nation, providing a personalized, yet global, experience that truly allows for bold and courageous students to find their paths. Bloomfield College is a unique institution offering students access to an affordable college education.

    -President Richard A. Levao



    Bloomfield College is an independent, comprehensive, liberal arts institution serving 2,000 students.   Since its inception 150 years ago, Bloomfield College has provided academic access to historically underserved populations.  In recent years, the College and its mission has garnered national recognition, quantifying Bloomfield College’s ability to give underserved students the resources and skills needed for future success. Located in historic Bloomfield, New Jersey, and just 15 miles from New York City, the mission of Bloomfield College is: “To prepare students to attain academic, personal and professional excellence in a multicultural and global society.” The College is deeply committed to enabling students, particularly those who have been excluded from higher education, to realize their intellectual and personal goals.  


    Bloomfield College seeks a Vice President for Enrollment Management with extensive recruitment experience and a sophisticated strategic and collaborative approach to prospective student outreach and marketing. The Vice President for Enrollment Management will develop and direct a team of 15 professionals who work in undergraduate admissions and marketing for the College. Working collaboratively with the Vice President for Finance and Administration, the Vice President for Enrollment Management provides oversight for Student Financial Aid, a team of five professionals. Future reporting relationships may be the subject of future discussions with the new VPEM. 


    The new Vice President will build on the departments’ strengths and with a data-informed approach, seek new opportunities to increase first-year and transfer student enrollment.  The Vice President will be a major ally in fortifying continuing student persistence through partnerships with committed colleagues in academic affairs and student affairs. 


    The Vice President for Enrollment Management serves as a College Officer, directly reporting to the President.   President Richard Levao has served the College passionately and with distinction since 2003.  He has announced his retirement and will leave the College at the end of 2018-19 academic year.  A search for his successor is underway, with an announcement of a new president expected in early 2019.  Securing an effective enrollment leader is a top priority of the current president and the Board of Trustees and is seen as an essential asset for the College. 


    The Vice President will join with other strong and deeply committed college officers reporting to the President in leading the institution forward.  The Vice President will serve as an influential and pivotal contributor to the College’s ongoing success, analyzing the landscape of higher education to best position Bloomfield in an increasingly competitive enrollment marketplace.  The Vice President also will be a key partner in the assessment of programs and net revenue streams, and in exploring future viable options for the financial stability of the College and for strengthening its academic offerings. 


    The successful candidate will strategically develop and implement admissions and marketing plans; will collaborate with faculty, athletics, and other internal partners; will apprise the Board of Trustees on enrollment and marketing issues; and will champion the strengths, successes and vision of Bloomfield College to all internal and external constituents.  In addition, the new Vice President will shape strategic thinking and assess the effectiveness of various recruitment and marketing initiatives; mentor and manage staff to fully capitalize on their strengths and abilities; lead an enrollment management committee and create an enrollment culture on campus based on transparency and partnership; and will collaborate directly with the Vice President for Student Affairs and Dean of Students, as well as others invested in student success, to improve retention efforts for the College.


    Goals and Opportunities:  The Vice President for Enrollment will be tasked with accomplishing the following:

    • Develop a strategic enrollment plan that includes contemporary and forward-looking approaches to enrollment planning within the context of Bloomfield’s mission of access, including identifying and capitalizing on strategic opportunities.

    • Use data and analysis to inform discussions and guide decision-making while maintaining the personal touch for which Bloomfield is known. 

    • Continue the College’s strong commitment to identifying, attracting, and retaining a diverse student body.

    • In a competitive higher education marketplace, thoroughly understand and champion Bloomfield’s distinctions.

    • Engage with the board of trustees and its appropriate committees to secure their help in accomplishing Bloomfield’s enrollment goals while creating awareness of the changing higher education landscape. An emphasis on strategic approaches to student recruitment, institutional branding, communication, and student financial aid will be expected in connection with the board.

    • Engage, mentor, and develop the staff within a tradition of mutual respect and cooperation while also emphasizing personal responsibility and accountability.  The vice president will be both a leader and an active member of the recruitment and marketing teams.

     


    Qualifications and Experience:  The new Vice President will be expected to have the knowledge, skills, and energy to make an immediate impact upon arrival and under the guidance of a new President.  Bringing new ideas for recruitment and marketing must be coupled with the ability to know and grow the existing strengths within the division, and to recognize and work toward the mission and vision of Bloomfield College that has served it so well in its first 150 years.  The new Vice President is expected to possess the following qualities and experience:

    • Expertise and leadership in the management of admissions, recruitment, and marketing with a record of enrollment success

    • Strategic, data-driven mindset with a proven ability in assessment and attaining results

    • Experience in territory development and management with a proven ability to navigate and succeed in challenging, demographic markets
