This is an opportunity to be part of a distinctive institution with a powerful tradition. The University is seeking a passionate and experienced leader in enrollment management to join a dedicated and talented team of faculty, administrators and staff working to build a sustainable and thriving future. The University’s strategic vision focuses on expanding existing programs, creating new programming, and working with committed partners to reach new learners and locations.

To that end, Antioch University is seeking candidates with a strong record of enrollment management in graduate and undergraduate programs and a collaborative spirit in working across the institution to reach enrollment goals. The Vice Chancellor for Enrollment Management serves as a member of the Chancellor’s senior executive team and participates in institution-wide strategic planning and policy development.

Antioch University (AU) was founded in 1852 as Antioch College in Yellow Springs, Ohio – a non-profit, non-sectarian, co-educational institution, which practiced a stimulating and unconventional approach to student learning. Today, AU is composed of Antioch University New England, Antioch University Los Angeles, Antioch University Santa Barbara, Antioch University Seattle, Antioch University Online, and the University’s Graduate School of Leadership & Change. Collectively, they make up a single Antioch University with progressive values and a mission to educate the next generation of those determined to win victories for humanity.

Given Antioch’s dispersed national structure, the VCEM will be expected to be able to operate effectively regardless of location. To manage and lead effectively, frequent travel to individual locations will be necessary. No specific geographic location is required, but direct access to one of Antioch’s key existing locations is strongly preferred. The successful candidate will be an experienced enrollment management professional with 10 or more years of progressive responsibility in successfully attracting, enrolling and retaining adult undergraduate and graduate students. A Masters degree is required, with the terminal degree preferred. Degrees must have been earned at regionally accredited institutions.
