University of Nebraska - Lincoln - Associate Vice Chancellor for Academic Services and Enrollment Management

NE, Lincoln

The University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL), a research-extensive, comprehensive, land-grant institution in the Big Ten Conference, invites applications and nominations for the role of Associate Vice Chancellor (AVC) for Academic Services and Enrollment Management (ASEM).

UNL, chartered in 1869, serves as Nebraska’s flagship institution. 150 years later, the AVC for UNL’s enrollment management efforts will join the university at a significant time of great momentum and promise. Elizabeth Spiller, the university’s new Executive Vice Chancellor, begins her tenure in March 2020; Ronnie Green, Chancellor, is operationalizing the campus’s 2025 strategic plan; and William “Ted” Carter, Jr. commences his tenure as the system’s next President. UNL is guided by its mission of teaching, research, and engagement and is committed to making the University of Nebraska the best it can possibly be while ensuring access, promoting excellence, and providing service to Nebraskans as the state’s university.

The university’s sesquicentennial celebration was a reflection of its historical accomplishments and collaborative efforts involving faculty, staff, students, and the community stakeholders in planning for a stronger, more vibrant institution. At its conclusion, the N150 Commission laid out a bold vision for the university over the next 25 years: The University of Nebraska–Lincoln is unparalleled among public research universities in access, opportunity, innovation, and life-long experiential learning.

Serving as UNL’s chief enrollment officer, the AVC will report to the Executive Vice Chancellor and will foster partnerships across the campus and the state of Nebraska to position UNL for future enrollment success. Collaborating with campus leadership, including the academic affairs leadership team, strategic enrollment management council, academic college deans, and graduate studies, the AVC will oversee the process for developing enrollment projections and providing enrollment data to academic leaders in support of campus strategic priorities.

Providing visionary leadership to a team of dedicated enrollment and academic service professionals, the AVC will have direct responsibility for the Offices of Undergraduate Admissions, Scholarships and Financial Aid, the University Registrar, New Student Enrollment, and Husker Hub (a “one-stop” office that allows students to handle the business of being a Husker). The AVC will partner closely with colleagues across the university in support of student retention and success initiatives.

The AVC will be an experienced, collaborative, and forward-thinking leader of people and programs with a demonstrable record of success using sophisticated recruiting, marketing, technology, and financial aid packaging techniques to achieve enrollment goals. Superior communication and relationship-building skills are essential, as is a deep commitment to and record of advancing diversity and access.
