Executive Director of Enrollment Management


SUNY Oswego is seeking candidates for its new position of Executive Director of Enrollment Management (EDEM). The successful candidate will be an innovative and visionary leader who will bring a deep understanding of the trends, best practices, and data-driven approaches of strategic enrollment management in higher education to lead in the crafting and implementation of a highly inclusive and effective institutional enrollment and retention plan.

Reporting directly to President Deborah F. Stanley and serving as a member of the President’s Council, the Executive Director of Enrollment Management will be an active participant in advancing the mission and goals of SUNY Oswego. The EDEM will serve as the chief enrollment officer and provide leadership to strategically plan, develop, coordinate, and implement SUNY Oswego’s comprehensive enrollment management and retention efforts.

SUNY Oswego has taken great strides in recent years to maintain overall enrollment and to enhance diversity of the student body. SUNY Oswego currently includes about 7,000 undergraduates and 1,000 graduate students, who attend classes on the 700-acre main campus on the shores of Lake Ontario, at a downtown Syracuse branch campus, or online and through extended learning platforms.


The successful candidate should have a minimum of 10 years of progressively responsible experience in enrollment management. A bachelor’s degree is the minimum educational credential, with a master’s degree strongly preferred, and an earned doctorate or terminal degree as an enhancement. The EDEM will use data-based and effective financial aid strategies for recruiting new and retaining continuing students. The EDEM should bring a demonstrable record of success in the field to the role at SUNY Oswego.
