The next Associate Vice Provost for Enrollment Management will have an opportunity to build on these partnerships and advance strategic enrollment management initiatives to recruit, admit, and support a high-quality and diverse entering class for the Seattle campus.
The Associate Vice Provost will be a transformational leader with the vision, energy, integrity, personal qualities, and professional profile to inspire a dedicated team and garner the trust and collaboration of colleagues across the University. The new leader will possess the expertise to lead a financial aid strategy that incorporates federal, state, and UW-funded financial aid; foster and refine recruiting strategies for domestic and international students; identify and develop key data and analysis that will guide the UW’s student enrollment strategy; and guide the modernization of student-support services and student administrative technologies. It will be important for the AVP to invest in and support staff within Enrollment Management through a deep commitment to team culture and an understanding that staff are critical components of the UW’s success. A record of commitment to attracting and serving a diverse student body, supporting a multicultural university, and creating a respectful environment that embraces all individuals is essential.
