We Place Vice Presidents for Enrollment

The placement of Interim Chief Enrollment Officers is central to the mission of The Registry.  The Registry is the nation’s best source for senior interim leadership. We place Interim Vice Presidents of Enrollment Management (VPEM) at public colleges and universities; community colleges and state systems offices; and private colleges and universities including faith-based and minority-serving institutions. In response to declining high school graduation populations, shifting populations of non-traditional students, and emerging strategies to target international students, demand for Registry Interim Chief Enrollment Officers has soared. Registry Interim VPEMs are highly-experienced veterans with skill-sets related to comprehensive marketing strategies; management of CRM systems; financial aid leveraging strategies; and yield management operations. Registry Interim VPEMs immediately identify strategic enrollment and retention challenges to maximize net tuition revenues for your institution.

Managing the selection process

We help you make the right choice. A Registry principal will travel to campus with your chosen finalists to participate in a customized and collegial selection process.

Tracking results

We help you manage expectations. A Registry principal will develop an expectations document that identities your challenges and priorities and establishes accountability for your new interim administrator.

Testimonials

"In short, we were delighted with [The Interim's] performance during her two years with us. She worked diligently to transform an outdated admissions operation into a state of the art approach to recruitment...This is the second time in three years that we have turned to the Registry for professional help with a major unit at the university and in both instances, we could not have been more successful..."

Richard Hurley

President, University of Mary Washington

"[The interim] was a steady hand while my Vice President of Enrollment was out on medical leave. [He] quickly gained the trust of the staff in Admissions and Financial Aid. They often shared with me that during the permanent Vice President's absence that we couldn’t have found a better “fit” for our institution."

Donald B. Taylor

President, Cabrini University

"[The Interim] met every goal we assigned him and came up with other things that we hadn't thought of.  He taught me and the entire campus a huge amount about enrollment management and set us on a path to higher performance in this area. He was also a wonderful mentor to our director of admissions and her staff members...We are a better campus for having had his services, and we will miss his monthly presence."

Linda Schott

President, The University of Maine at Presque Isle

Gold Standard Best Practices

The Registry achieves positive results because it is built upon a foundation of Gold Standard Best Practices for engaging external interim leaders:

  • We pre-identify and pre-qualify capable, suitable and effective executives who have a definite interest and commitment to serving as outside interim executives well before you need them.
  • We provide an established poolof leadership talent, eliminating the need to conduct expensive, time consuming and potentially disruptive open-market executive searches.
  • We establish a structure and a format prior to the offcial appointment of your external interim that defines the purpose, the direction and the desired outcomes for the engagement.
  • We establish an understanding or a written agreement that your outside interim cannot become a candidate for the permanent appointment.
  • We effectively empower your external interim executive to achieve the desired results defined by your institution.
Value

The Registry offers the best pricing model—our fees are incurred on a monthly-only basis. They will be roughly equivalent to your institution’s established budget for salary and fringe benefits for the duration of our interim service.
