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:// wilkesuniversitycareers. applicantpro.com/jobs/422723. html).
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.

 Please be in touch with search committee members if you have questions. The members of the search committee are: Paul Adams (chair), Kim Bower-Spence, Vanessa Ejiofor, Evene Estwick, Chanel Greene, William Hudson, Izzi Metz, Donald Mencer and Eric Ruggiero.
