Vice Provost for Enrollment Chapel Hill, NC

The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC-Chapel Hill or Carolina), the nation’s first public university, invites nominations and applications for their next Vice Provost for Enrollment (VPE). Reporting directly to the Executive Vice Chancellor and Provost and working closely with the Chancellor and other senior leaders, the VPE will lead Carolina’s enrollment division, encompassing the Office of Scholarships and Student Aid, Office of Undergraduate Admissions, and Office of the University Registrar. The new VPE will be Carolina’s chief enrollment officer, tasked with shaping a comprehensive institutional strategy while forging a forward-looking, analytical, student-centric, collaborative, ethical, and access-oriented approach to enrollment management.

Since it first opened its doors in 1795, UNC-Chapel Hill has been at the heart of cutting-edge education, preparing a diverse student body to become makers, explorers, innovators, public servants, and leaders both locally and globally. Carolina’s nationally recognized, innovative teaching and campus-wide spirit of inquiry and dedication to public service continues this heralded legacy to this day. At UNC-Chapel Hill, students develop a voice for critical thought and the courage to guide change, connecting to the future they are already shaping. Collegiality, humility, collaboration, and service are at Carolina’s core, as is the campus’s longstanding commitment to educational access and affordability for all, most notably demonstrated by the University’s groundbreaking Carolina Covenant debt-free aid program for low-income students, the first of its kind to be launched by a public university.

Ideal VPE candidates will demonstrate a successful track record in the field of enrollment management, including but not limited to: leading and mentoring high functioning teams; promoting a culture of data-driven decision making; partnering with development offices to increase access to financial aid; partnering with senior campus leaders and faculty to promote student success; communicating with diverse audiences; building sustainable systems and processes using contemporary technology where applicable; fostering a diverse and inclusive student body; and understanding the nuances of interdivisional collaboration in a highly decentralized institution. Additionally, strong candidates for this role will possess outstanding judgement, understand when to preserve continuity and when to disrupt, excel at strategic decision-making, always put students first, and value inclusivity, while being sensitive to the needs and demographics of the State of North Carolina.

All applications, inquiries, and nominations should be submitted electronically in strict confidence below.
