The Director of Admissions is responsible for planning and implementing all aspects of admission to Governors State University including recruitment and admission strategies designed to meet institutional enrollment goals for freshmen, transfer and graduate students. The Director will ensure a compelling and knowledgeable presentation of Governors State University to prospective students, parents, educators, and others; overseeing the evaluation of applications; leading, inspiring, and motivating a staff of professionals; and overseeing departmental technology use, publications, web, data collection, program/process evaluation, and departmental planning. The Director will work with graduate programs and the office of international services and their staff to ensure collaboration in the attainment of enrollment goals. The Director will manage the department personnel and operating budget. The Director supervises a department of approximately 20 professional personnel including three admission leaders responsible for recruiting, enrollment services/processing, and office/relationship management (events/outreach).
Interviews are my favorite part of the process because we finally get to meet you in person. Interviews will occur between mid-October and mid-November. In addition to on-campus interviews, we also conduct interviews in Shanghai, Tokyo, Dubai, Mumbai, São Paulo, New York City, Bay Area CA, London, and Paris. Where you interview does NOT affect your likelihood to be accepted (all interviews globally are conducted only by members of the Admissions Board). Choose what’s most convenient for you, and if you aren’t able to travel, we will work something out via Skype.
