UW Bothell is committed to access, diversity, and student success — as well as the boundless possibilities fostered by a UWB education. Over 50% of the UWB student body is racially diverse, over 40% are the first in their family to attend college, and over 30% are Pell eligible. The Vice Chancellor holds a significant and influential position at the University, with the opportunity to make a tangible contribution to the future of UWB and to the success of a highly diverse student body. Reporting to the Chancellor of the University of Washington Bothell and serving on the Chancellor’s Executive Team, the Vice Chancellor for Enrollment Management and Student Affairs provides leadership for enrollment management and student affairs across the University. The Vice Chancellor will be tasked with building a full-life cycle approach to enrollment management and student affairs in order to recruit, attract, select, enroll, retain, support, develop, and graduate UWB students.
The successful candidate will enhance the systems and structures to aid in enrollment management and student affairs planning and decision making at all levels and will lead an ongoing institution-wide conversation about vision, goals, and strategy. The Vice Chancellor will possess great analytic and technological depth, the ability to improve upon every metric in the enrollment spectrum, a working knowledge of current national issues in student affairs, a commitment to keeping student welfare always at the forefront, and a proven capacity for embedding enrollment management and student affairs priorities within institutional values and aspirations. The new Vice Chancellor will also be a strong collaborator with superior interpersonal communication skills and will possess the professional currency that will garner the trust and confidence of senior leaders, faculty, campus constituents, and division staff.
