SUMMARY OF DUTIES
Rationale for the Position
The candidate has proven abilities in strategic and operational leadership in order to ensure the planning, organization and implementation of strategic enrolment management, whose goal is to attain the strategic objectives of the University, from recruitment to convocation.
As a member of management, the candidate is ultimately responsible for the processes, procedures, communications and information systems regarding recruitment, admissions, financial aid and scholarships, registration, management of academic records, course timetables, examinations, student services centre, convocation and academic success support services, at both the undergraduate and graduate level.
In conjunction with these areas of activity, he or she must ensure the integrity of data and offer the highest-quality services to candidates, students, professors, representatives of faculties and services, the central administration and the general public, with the aim of recruiting the best candidates and allowing them to benefit fully from their university experience.
Detailed List of Responsibilities
Implement a recruitment strategy for the undergraduate and graduate levels that will allow us to reverse the trend of the past few years and increase the number of students. Issues related to the external environment, such as francophone demographics and increased competition, create major challenges. A strategy must be integrated among Strategic Enrolment Management and its partners, including the faculties and the Alumni and Development Office. It must also be aligned with the University’s strategic objectives within strategic planning. Once this planning has begun, the person in this position must ensure that the units of measurement are established, the results analyzed and the recommendations developed, in order to react quickly to changes in the University’s internal and external environment.
As the person responsible for processes, procedures and information systems related to activities for managing enrolment, the candidate is constantly balancing the needs, the constraints imposed by the systems, and at times the administrative burden caused by complex changes. The candidate must therefore be sure to properly express and measure the costs, consequences and advantages of certain changes in keeping with the Senate’s expectations.
Because providing services is so central for all partners in Strategic Enrolment Management, a healthy working relationship between these stakeholders is essential. And yet, with four faculties, a number of services and a range of profiles within the student population itself (undergraduate vs. graduate, full-time vs. part-time, Canadian vs. international, those arriving from high school vs. mature students), it is often difficult to arrive at consensus. The unique needs of each of these stakeholders makes collaboration more complicated. This crucial relationship is often a challenging one.
The Director of Strategic Enrolment Management is responsible for the progress of students from recruitment to convocation. The candidate must ensure that at each level, processes are optimal, the highest standards of integrity are maintained, and retention goals are met.
