The State University of New York College at Geneseo, a public liberal arts college of approximately 5,500 undergraduate and graduate students in Western New York, invites nominations, applications, and expressions of interest for the position of Vice President for Enrollment Management.
One of the 13 university colleges in the SUNY system, Geneseo is nationally recognized for the quality of its faculty, staff, and programs. For six consecutive years, U.S. News & World Report has ranked Geneseo the best in the nation for undergraduate teaching among regional universities in the North. The College’s faculty include 15 SUNY-ranked Distinguished Professors and 61 Chancellor Award for Excellence in Teaching recipients. It is also the only SUNY comprehensive college to host a chapter of Phi Beta Kappa. In 2018, Milne Library was ranked first in the nation for institutions of its type by the Association of College and Research Libraries. For the past six years, Washington Monthly has ranked Geneseo in the top five for its contributions to the public good; in 2017, it was ranked number one.
Because of the quality of its programs and its strong reputation, Geneseo competes with the best private institutions in the region and enrolls bright, inquisitive, highly motivated, and socially responsible students who can make the most of the opportunities college affords them.
The combination of a talented faculty dedicated to student learning and a student body able and eager to rise to high expectations produces impressive student outcomes. Geneseo has the highest four-year graduation rate among the SUNY institutions and is among the top ten in the nation among public institutions. It is also among the top institutions of its type in the number of alumni with doctorates in the STEM disciplines, the number of U.S. Student Fulbright Awards its students receive, and the number of Peace Corps volunteers it produces.
The new vice president will have the opportunity to work with a talented faculty and staff to lead the enrollment effort at Geneseo to the higher level of excellence required by the increased competition among institutions of its quality. Specifically, the new vice president will be expected to develop a strategic enrollment management plan, to leverage financial aid more effectively, and to find clear and compelling ways to market successfully a liberal arts education of distinction.
The ideal candidate for this position will have a history of successively more responsible leadership experience in enrollment management to at least the level of director of admissions; a record of success; a clear understanding of liberal education; excellent oral and written communication skills; and a facility with data analytics.
