Kent State's T. David Garcia Named Senior Associate Vice President for Strategic Enrollment Management
Kent State University's T. David Garcia has been named senior associate vice president for strategic enrollment management, overseeing the university's new Office of Enrollment Management. Garcia previously served as associate vice president for enrollment management in the former Division of Enrollment Management and Student Affairs. Under a new leadership model, the Office of Enrollment Management has become a separate office that reports to the Office of the Provost, and a new Division of Student Affairs has been established, effective Aug. 1.
The new Office of Enrollment Management includes Student Financial Aid and Admissions. The University Registrar reports to the Office of the Provost, and the Career Services Center joins the University College.
"This administrative structure positions enrollment management as a vital part of our student success plan - a plan that covers the student-success spectrum from recruitment to graduation," says Kent State President Beverly Warren. "Dave has provided outstanding leadership to Kent State's enrollment management strategy for six years, and I know he will continue to lead our efforts in attracting a diverse and academically talented student body."
Warren says this leadership change is necessary given the vital importance of enrollment management to the success of the university and the changing landscape of higher education.
