Cleveland State University (CSU), a regional, public, urban, research institution centered on the student experience, invites applications and nominations for a visionary and strategic leader to serve as the Vice President of Enrollment Management (VPEM).

Transforming lives and communities since 1964, CSU provides a dynamic setting for engaged learning. Serving a diverse population of over approximately 14,000 students, CSU is the No. 1 public university in Ohio for social mobility. CSU faculty and staff are focused on the support and success of students, and students are provided the opportunity to participate in cutting-edge research and innovative academic programs that have the potential to shape their future and the future of their communities. CSU has continually been recognized for its ability to graduate students with economic disadvantages and other educational barriers. Approximately 80% of CSU graduates stay in Northeast Ohio, creating a talent pipeline with expertise and skills that align with high-demand fields. President Laura Bloomberg, who took office on April 26, 2022, is the eighth president of the University and a nationally recognized leader in public and global policy education.

Reporting to President Bloomberg, the VPEM will assume a significant and influential role at the University and have the opportunity to make a tangible contribution to the future of Cleveland State University. This impactful position oversees approximately 85 team members including Admissions, Bursar, Campus 411 (CSU's one-stop shop), Enrollment Services, Financial Aid, Orientation, and the University Registrar. The VPEM will be responsible for achieving enrollment goals through the continued implementation and assessment of an actionable strategic enrollment plan and be empowered to build on the considerable institutional support for and interest in enrollment. As CSU seeks to recruit, attract, select, enroll, retain, educate, develop, and graduate a talented and diverse group of students from the region and beyond, the VPEM will be empowered and supported to think creatively and take calculated risks.

The successful candidate will provide vision, leadership, and expertise to all areas of enrollment management. A passion for building and comfort with change are essential, as is great analytic and technological depth, the ability to innovate to achieve enrollment goals, a commitment to creating a welcoming environment for students, and a proven capacity for embedding enrollment within institutional values and aspirations. As a core member of the President's Cabinet, the VPEM will also be a strong collaborator with superior interpersonal communication skills and will possess the professional currency to garner the trust and confidence of senior leaders, deans, faculty, campus constituents, and division staff. Equally essential, the new leader will have a passion for the University and its students and the transformative power of a CSU education.

All applications, nominations and inquiries are invited. Applications should include, as two separate documents, a CV or resume and a letter of interest addressing the themes in the leadership profile found at Professional references are not requested at this time.
