Enrollment management joins other academic support services

Bernardo-80PULLMAN, Wash. – To consolidate academic support services for students at Washington State University, enrollment management was moved into the office of the provost – the chief academic officer – as of July 1.

Enrollment management is comprised of five offices: enrollment, recruitment and marketing, new student programs, student financial services and enrollment information technology. These five offices join the registrar, which was moved under the leadership of Provost Dan Bernardo a year earlier.

Student affairs continues under the direction of Vice President for Student Affairs John Fraire. It serves to maximize students’ experience at WSU and includes such areas as the dean of students, housing, residence life, community engagement, health and wellness, recreation, counseling, diversity and more.

Enrollment management “performed exceedingly well over the past year, resulting in the enrollment of more than 6,900 new students (freshmen and transfers) across the WSU system this fall,” Bernardo said.

“Enrollment management is an extremely important activity for our university. I have been impressed with the leadership in each of the five offices,” he said. “This new structure will allow us to be better integrated in our approach to recruiting, educating and graduating our undergraduate students.”
