National search for executive director of Office of Recruitment and Admissions

Submitted by Office of the Provost

The vice provost for enrollment management announces a national search for the next executive director of the Office of Recruitment and Admissions at Kansas State University. The university has engaged the services of Academic Career & Executive Search, an executive search firm, to support the search committee with the process. 

The executive director will be responsible for the development and execution of innovative strategic recruitment, admissions, and yield programs for undergraduate recruitment and admissions. This forward-thinking visionary will serve as a key leader in support of an integrated, multifaceted and dynamic enrollment operation and an active partner on the enrollment management leadership team. The ideal candidate will create a synergetic connection between all universitywide recruitment that leads to increased enrollment and retention of domestic and international undergraduate students.

The executive director will serve as the primary person to supervise the unit, oversee budget and be the first to review admission appeal decisions. This role is directly responsible for developing and implementing recruitment and admissions processing decisions. The executive director will identify best practices and coordinate with colleges to lead an increased enrollment of domestic and international undergraduate students. This position reports to the vice provost for enrollment management. 

The full position description, including required qualifications, may be found on the enrollment management website.
