Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science - Vice President for Strategic Enrollment Management

IL, North Chicago

Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science (RFU) invites applications and nominations for the position of Vice President for Strategic Enrollment Management.

RFU is committed to serving humanity through the interprofessional education of health and biomedical professionals and the discovery of knowledge dedicated to improving wellness. The university embodies the spirit of inquiry and excellence modeled by its namesake, Rosalind Franklin, PhD, the brilliant and trailblazing scientist whose Photo 51 revealed the double helix of DNA. Recognized for its research in areas including neuroscience, brain-related diseases, inherited disorders, diabetes, obesity, and gait and balance, RFU encompasses the Chicago Medical School, College of Health Professions, College of Nursing, College of Pharmacy, School of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies, and the Dr. William M. Scholl College of Podiatric Medicine. By embodying the qualities of its namesake — a spirit of inquiry, diligence, and academic excellence — Rosalind Franklin University continues to shape the future of health care.

RFU’s location in Lake County, Illinois, offers the best of both worlds: providing easy access to the bustling, world-class city of Chicago and a quality of life that is more affordable and slower-paced, with quaint towns, miles of hiking trails, and Lake Michigan’s shoreline nearby. Lake County, where North Chicago resides, includes both rural and suburban communities, allowing for a wide range of extracurricular activities and lifestyles.

Reporting to the Provost and serving on the President’s Cabinet, the Vice President will formulate, execute, and continuously evolve a transparent, collaborative, and cutting-edge enrollment management strategy that stems from and is tied to the goals, mission, and resources of the university. The Vice President will guide the strategy for all enrollment management activities including admissions, student financial services, and the registrar and put in place the systems and structures to support enrollment planning and decision making at all levels. Critical to this work will be the Vice President’s understanding of and support for the university’s academic mission as well as commitment to working collaboratively with the President, Provost, Deans, faculty, and other members of the university community.

RFU seeks a Vice President who will provide deep knowledge of best practices in the field. Joining an institution driven by a commitment to health equity, innovation, and philanthropy, the Vice President will lead with pace and a strategic mindset. The successful candidate will possess great analytic and technological depth; an eye for the possible; an eagerness to engage in meaningful interchange about enrollment priorities with university leadership; and excellent communication and collaboration skills.
