About the Position
Serving as a member of the Law School’s senior leadership team, the Senior Associate Dean for Enrollment and Financial Aid is responsible for all aspects of the School’s process of recruiting and enrolling students, including: execution of strategic enrollment plan; recruitment, selection, enrollment, and retention of a highly qualified and motivated student body; and the integration of marketing and recruitment strategies with existing and developing communications and social networking technologies. The Senior Associate Dean is responsible for the leadership, management, and overall performance of the Admissions staff. In addition, the Senior Associate Dean oversees the Law School’s professional financial aid functions, in collaboration with University financial aid leaders, which include awarding and disbursement of annual scholarships and grants, implementation of federal and private loan programs, administration of the Law School’s loan forgiveness program, and administration of the Law School’s federal work-study program.
The Law School’s admissions goals, policies, and priorities are determined jointly by its two co-Deans, as advised by the faculty, and are carried out by the Senior Associate Dean. Those policies include the school’s historical and ongoing dedication to a broad and holistic review of each candidate that considers the entire applicant and not only numerical credentials. The successful candidate for this position will recognize and embrace the importance of holistic review as well as the centrality to the Law School’s mission of attracting a well-rounded, diverse, and inclusive student body.
