Title: Vice President for Enrollment Management

Description:  Hartwick College, a selective, private liberal arts college in Oneonta, New York, invites nominations, applications, and expressions of interest for the position of Vice President for Enrollment Management. The new Vice President will have the opportunity to work with a stable enrollment management staff and play a leadership role in a welcoming community of faculty, staff, and senior administrators. This opportunity is enhanced by the fact that the College community is well prepared for new leadership in enrollment management, and is poised to move forward in new directions, having very recently completed a yearlong strategic visioning process.

Founded in 1797, Hartwick College currently enrolls 1576 full-time students, 77 per cent of whom live on campus. It has a very talented, dedicated, student-centered faculty and staff. Its well-focused liberal arts curriculum offers students an abundance of opportunities for experiential learning and close work with faculty members. Open Doors often ranks it among the top ten liberal arts colleges for the percentage of students who participate in international travel. Its January Term provides the opportunity not only for travel-study courses, but also for innovative study that involves close faculty-student collaboration. Hartwick also offers its students a Three-Year Degree option in 24 of its 31 majors, an Honors Program, a rich offering of campus activities, and a nationally competitive multi-divisional athletic program (NCAA Divisions I and III). Its campus in Oneonta is supplemented by its nearby Pine Lake Environmental Campus which provides an excellent venue for field work of many kinds and immersive study of almost any kind.

The new Vice President will be expected to develop and implement a successful strategic enrollment plan, collaborate with the Office of Marketing & Communications to develop a more integrated and effective marketing and communications strategy, foster staff development, and provide collegial leadership to the enrollment management staff as well as to the whole campus community.

The ideal candidate will have successful enrollment experience at a private liberal arts college at the level of the chief enrollment officer, strong analytic abilities, a thorough grasp of financial aid strategy and modeling, a well-informed understanding of liberal arts education, and the desire to be an integral, collaborative and visible member of the Hartwick community.
