New York, NY
Yeshiva University (YU or University) seeks an innovative and experienced Chief Enrollment Management Officer (CEMO) who will develop strategic undergraduate enrollment strategies, manage undergraduate admissions, and, in partnership with the CFO and Provost, oversee the University-wide financial aid and registrarial structures.
Yeshiva University is the world’s premier faith-based Jewish university, employing 1500 people across its various campus locations—Wilf Campus, Beren Campus, Brookdale Center, Resnick Campus in the Bronx, the Gruss Institute in Jerusalem, the Boys High School in Manhattan and the Girls High School in Queens. The University seeks to attract and retain engaged and committed individuals who contribute to a meaningful working environment, where there is a sense of community and belonging, and where colleagues share YU’s values and commitment to the university’s Jewish roots.
This is a pivotal moment for Yeshiva University and its undergraduate programs. In just over a year, President Dr. Ari Berman has laid out an ambitious vision for the future of the Institution which focuses on Jewish values, quality education, and assuring excellent opportunities for YU graduates. He has been strengthening connections with friends and alumni of Yeshiva University across the world, including YU’s extensive network in the Jewish communities of North America, Israel, and across the globe. Moving forward, there is substantial opportunity to work across the university to coordinate and enhance the Institution’s recruitment and retention of students into its undergraduate programs in a rapidly changing environment of higher education while also increasing its relevancy to the Jewish world and beyond.
The CEMO will provide strategic and creative leadership for the areas of undergraduate admissions, and the centralized graduate and undergraduate units of student financial aid, international students, and registrar. The CEMO will participate in the formation and implementation of the University’s strategic plan in addition to developing a complementary strategic enrollment plan with distinct strategies for the University’s various pipelines and programs. The CEMO will lead a team of professionals during a time when the University seeks to strengthen and grow its undergraduate population as well as increase its graduate program offerings.
The leader in this newly created role will report to the Senior Vice President. The CEMO will partner with the Office of the Provost as well as individual deans on academic issues; the Office of Student Life, to help ensure the retention of continuing students; and the with the Office of Communications and Marketing in reaching out to prospective students. The CEMO will oversee an operating budget of at least $5 million, and an undergraduate awarded financial aid budget of approximately $45 million.
The successful candidate will be a creative and strategic leader who possesses a demonstrated knowledge of undergraduate enrollment management. The committee welcomes candidates from a diversity of backgrounds who display an appreciation for Yeshiva’s mission. Candidates must also possess excellent analytical, communication, and interpersonal skills, and be prepared to join academic and administrative colleagues in maintaining the high quality of education for YU’s students moving the institution forward in national and international prominence.
