Search for the Vice Provost of Enrollment Management
University of California, Davis
The University of California, Davis (UC Davis), one of the top public research institutions in the world, seeks an inspirational, collaborative, and strategic leader to serve as the next Vice Provost for Enrollment Management (VPEM). As the chief enrollment officer, the VPEM will help lead the university in developing and implementing an overarching enrollment strategy and plan that will set UC Davis on a path to meet its ambitious goals, proactively serving California’s diverse and dynamic population, and further establishing itself as a world-class leader in public education.
The VPEM will join an institution with an unwavering commitment to its students and to addressing the defining issues of our time. As a member of the Provost’s leadership team, the VPEM will be a natural collaborator and team advocate, partnering with colleagues to support and develop a talented team of professionals devoted to the mission of UC Davis. The VPEM has the opportunity to impact the size, shape, and character of the undergraduate student body at UC Davis, which serves an undergraduate population of approximately 32,000 students, as well as approximately 10,000 graduate students. With major shifts in the national enrollment landscape in recent years, the VPEM has the opportunity to craft bold, inclusive policy that serves as a national model, including addressing the recent UC shift to eliminate the consideration of standardized testing in the admissions evaluation process. The VPEM will build on existing momentum to create a more equitable and diverse enrollment management cycle and campus community. In addition, the VPEM will be able to make a lasting impact on UC Davis’ service to the region, state, and country in partnering closely with the Director of HSI Initiatives to achieve federal Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI) designation. Informed by these initiatives, the VPEM will provide critical leadership in fulfilling the university-wide commitment to inclusive excellence while striving to lead UC Davis toward fully reflecting the dynamic and vibrant diversity of the state of California.
