Scott James Named Vice Chancellor for Enrollment Management and Student Affairs at University of Washington Bothell

Scott James, Ed.D., was recently named vice chancellor for Enrollment Management and Student Affairs at the University of Washington Bothell, a newly created position on campus. “I am pleased to announce that Dr. Scott James has accepted my offer to take on this new role and will help bring our vision for UW Bothell to life,” said UW Bothell Chancellor Wolf Yeigh. “Scott, who has been with us through our remote operations during the pandemic, has decades of experience and a successful record in both student life and enrollment management. His experience, authenticity and willingness to lead change will be an asset for us all.” 

James says he is excited that the position he will take on is a new one that will oversee both Enrollment Management and Student Affairs, which are currently separate divisions at UW Bothell. “I’ve integrated the two divisions before. There is a lot of synergy between the two groups,” he said. “We have the opportunity to support the work that academic affairs is doing more holistically.”
