Responsibilites and Direct Reports

Recruitment Resources

Because transformational education of undergraduates begins with the students who enroll, faculty members are asked to recruit future Baylor graduates who are a good fit both for your field of study as well as Baylor University.

Feedback from our recruiting efforts consistently reveals that interaction with faculty is an extraordinarily positive experience for prospective students and their families. Often, contact with faculty can seal the deal with a prospective student who is faced with making an important life decision.

General Academic Enrollment Management

At Baylor, we believe that every admitted student can find a successful path at Baylor. The overarching goal of managing academic enrollment is to facilitate student success and progress toward graduation while working within the resource capacities of the academic areas and in light of the institutional goals and revenue needs.

General undergraduate enrollment strategy is set by the Enrollment Management Council (EMC), comprised primarily of deans and vice presidents. Implementation of that strategy is developed and implemented by the Enrollment Management Working Group (EMWG).
