Search Update_Vice President for Enrollment Services
The Vice President for Enrollment Services (VPES) search committee held its first
meeting on June 23. The search is underway and is being assisted by AGB Search and
consultant, Dr. Alan Crist.
During its first meeting the committee received its charge from Dr. Skleder, reviewed
the committee's role in the search process, and discussed the opportunities and challenges
of the position. The Committee approved a tentative timetable for the search, advertising
placements, the text for the position ad and the position profile. The position is
now advertised in national higher education publications, in publications that target
enrollment professionals and those that will give us access to diverse candidates,
as well as the Wilkes web site (https://
In mid-August the committee will meet to select the pool of candidates for preliminary
interviews. Preliminary interviews are scheduled for September 6/7 and 9/10. On campus
interviews for finalists are planned for the week of September 26. During the candidate visits the campus will have an opportunity to engage with all
of the VPES finalists. By the beginning of October the search committee plans to provide
the Provost with its review of the candidates. We remind the campus that these dates
are tentative and subject to change.
Based on the timetable outlined above, Mr. David Rhodes, our Interim Vice President
for Enrollment Services from AGB Search, will remain in his role until the arrival
of our new Vice President.
