    Ursinus College, a historic, highly ranked national liberal arts college in suburban Philadelphia, seeks a thoughtful, innovative, and nimble enrollment professional to serve as Vice President for Enrollment.   Ursinus College is ideally located 25 miles outside of Philadelphia, a city rich with institutions of higher learning, and a region burgeoning with history, culture, and a lively arts scene.

    A community of nearly 1,700 students, Ursinus was founded in 1869 and nearly 150 years later, the college welcomed its 17th president, Brock Blomberg, on July 1, 2015.  Ursinus is noted for its commitment to undergraduate research, its dedication to the arts, and interdisciplinary and experiential learning.  Ursinus is ranked among the top 100 liberal arts colleges in the country, is one of the 40 “Colleges That Change Lives,” a distinctive group of colleges known for their dedication to undergraduate teaching and learning.  It is one of only a very small percentage of institutions (8%) in the country with a chapter of Phi Beta Kappa on campus.  This is a distinguished and extraordinary institution in spite of, or perhaps, because of its small size.   The student faculty ratio is 12:1.  To learn more about the College go to

    The Scope of the Position

    Ursinus seeks an energetic, creative, and strategic thinker who is able to combine both the art and science of student recruitment and enrollment.  The vice president will be an experienced and effective collaborator who will engage faculty, coaches, alumni, and current students alike in the process of attracting and engaging prospective students and their families with Ursinus.  The Vice President for Enrollment will report to the president and serve as a member of the senior leadership team.   Supervising the office of admissions and directing the work of the professional and support staff and large cohort of student recruiters, the vice president will also direct the work of the financial aid staff and their student assistants in the important work of awarding and renewing the scholarship and financial aid support of new and returning students. 

    Leadership – The vice president will bring an effective and experienced body of enrollment knowledge to Ursinus, assuring the strategic enrollment vision is understood by staff within the division and also by recruitment partners across campus—faculty, staff, coaches, alumni, students and current parents.  As an experienced leader, the vice president will mentor and develop staff to maximize their talents, and help the institution navigate the challenges of today’s enrollment environment.  The vice president will strive to establish the division as a model for service to prospective students and their families, ethical decision-making in the division’s practices, professional and proactive recruitment, and respect for the Ursinus community.

    Innovation – In an era of diminishing numbers of college-bound students coupled with perceived affordability issues among prospective families, the vice president will be encouraged and expected to expand recruitment programming, develop new approaches, and maximize and mentor the talents of the staff to meet enrollment goals.  The vice president should be a rational risk-taker and should inspire colleagues to exceed the expectations of prospective students and their families.

    Quantitative - The vice president will assure that effective financial aid strategies are in place to support the fiscal stability of the institution while striving to enroll the most able, talented and diverse student body.  The successful candidate will have a fundamental knowledge of sound financial aid practices and support staff through the myriad changes and advances in delivering financial aid to students.

    Communication – The vice president will be a compelling spokesperson for the value of a liberal arts education in general and Ursinus as the college of opportunity in particular.   The vice president will assure the strategic vision for recruitment and enrollment is communicated clearly across campus, uniting the community in this important effort. 

    Qualifications and Desired Attributes of the Vice President for Enrollment

    • ·      A master’s degree or higher
    • ·      Firm understanding of the marketplace and the challenges inherent in the field
    • ·      Experienced in the art and science of enrollment management, supporting a personalized approach to recruitment enhanced by the best use of technology and social media to enhance efforts
    • ·      Demonstrated ability to motivate and encourage talented staff and to serve as their advocate, mentor, and leader
    • ·      Demonstrated ability to reach across campus and work collaboratively with all recruiting partners in the enrollment effort
    • ·      Understands current trends in enrollment management and willing to take appropriate risks in new programming and recruitment
    • ·      A strategic thinker and data-driven decision maker
    • ·      An effective spokesperson committed to promoting the value of a liberal arts education
