Following a comprehensive national search, Carnegie Mellon University named Kristina Wong Davis, former vice provost for enrollment management at Purdue University, to be its inaugural vice provost for enrollment management. “Dr. Wong Davis is a national leader in higher education admissions and enrollment and we could not be more delighted to have her join our team as the university looks to the future of recruiting and engaging an exceptional student body,” said Provost James H. Garrett. “Her clear professional purpose and vision, as well as her deep understanding of enrollment trends, make her well suited to take on this newly developed role here at CMU.”

At Purdue, Wong Davis served as chief enrollment officer, providing leadership and oversight to the Office of Admissions, Office of the Registrar, Division of Financial Aid, Enrollment Management Analysis and Reporting, and Enrollment Management Strategic Communications and Initiatives. She led and managed all areas of enrollment management working across the campus to strategically plan and execute critical enrollment objectives.

“It is with great excitement as I look toward joining the phenomenal team at Carnegie Mellon University. I am honored to be offered the opportunity to serve this great institution in this inaugural role,” said Wong Davis.
