I’m pleased to announce the division of Enrollment Management is changing its name to “Enrollment and Communication.” This change appropriately recognizes the addition of the Marketing Communications group to the division, which took place during the summer of 2009.   This change also recognizes that marketing is not limited to recruitment and enrollment functions.   As an institutional priority, marketing and communication encompass a broad spectrum of goals, strategies, and initiatives. In addition to Marketing Communications, the umbrella of the Enrollment and Communication division includes Admission and Student Financial Services.
