Vice Provost for Strategic Enrollment

Indiana State University seeks applications and nominations for an exceptional individual to serve as Vice Provost for Strategic Enrollment. The University is seeking a team builder and strategic thought partner to design, develop, and implement a strategic vision related to the recruitment and enrollment of new students. During the last two years, the university has experienced growth in new enrollment and seeks a visionary leader to continue this positive momentum.

Since its establishment in 1865, Indiana State University (ISU) has consistently upheld its respected reputation as an all-inclusive, state-assisted public university offering bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral degrees. Indiana State is in the heart of downtown Terre Haute, a city of 60,000 residents sitting 15 miles from the state line of Illinois and along the Interstate 70 corridor.

As of the fall of 2023, Indiana State University’s total headcount is 8,305, including 1,568 full-time first-year students. This number reflects a two percent increase, contributing to a 10% growth in the first-year class over the past two years.

ISU students represent a wide range of backgrounds and experiences including family educational history (40% are first-generation students), socioeconomic status (46% are Pell-eligible students), race and ethnicity (35% of new domestic first-year students are minority), nationality (4% of students are international), and academic achievement (22% of incoming first-year students are enrolled in the Honors College.)

The VPSE reports directly to the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs, and partners with academic deans, faculty, and administrative leaders. The VPSE will oversee all aspects of new enrollment, including the Office of Admissions, Financial Aid, New Student Orientation, Marketing to all new student populations, Communication Center, and Educational Partnerships.
