Finalists named for assistant VP for enrollment

by Anne Dolan
Three finalists have been named for the position of assistant vice president for enrollment. They are David Bousquet, director of undergraduate admissions at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, Blacksburg; Don Kajcienski, owner of Don Kajcienski & Associates, Las Vegas, Nev., a marketing consulting service for non- profit organizations; and Ron Moss, director of admission and enrollment management at Southern Methodist University, Dallas.

The assistant vice president position is new, resulting from a reorganization in Iowa State's enrollment services areas (admissions, financial aid, new student orientation and special recruitment programs). The assistant vice president will report to the vice president for student affairs and coordinate the total recruitment effort in enrolling the new undergraduate class each year.

Each of the finalists are spending two days on campus this month, meeting with students, faculty, staff and administrators. Each candidate also gives a 20- to 30-minute public presentation on "Changing the Culture: Moving into the Enrollment Management Mentality" and fields questions from the audience.
