As The University of Toledo undergoes a planned leadership change for the Division of Enrollment Management, all faculty and staff are asked to support continued efforts to grow student enrollment and retention.

Registration is now open for spring semester for students who have earned at least 30 credit hours. Open registration will begin Tuesday, Nov. 13.

Students also are able to register now for winter intersession, which runs from Monday, Dec. 17, through Friday, Jan. 11, and allows students to take advantage of accelerated courses.

“Growing enrollment and supporting those students through graduation are key to our success,” UT President Sharon L. Gaber said. “It is incumbent on each of us to be sure we are serving as ambassadors for the University and doing everything we can to attract and retain students.”

Gaber thanked Stephanie Sanders, the interim vice president for enrollment management, for her efforts to implement a strategic enrollment plan during her two-year appointment with the University. Sanders announced earlier this year her plans to complete her tenure at UT and return to her home in Columbus at the end of the calendar year at the conclusion of her contract.

“We have made great strides under Stephanie’s leadership to refine our marketing and recruitment strategies that led to the highest academically prepared freshman class in UT history this fall,” Gaber said. “We appreciate her willingness to step in when called up two years ago and for ensuring a smooth transition to our next enrollment leader.”

Candidates are visiting campus for UT’s next vice president for enrollment management who is responsible for providing leadership for continuous, university-wide strategic enrollment planning that focuses on sustained, positive outcomes for recruiting, enrolling, retaining and graduating a talented and diverse student body.

The goal is to have a new vice president assume responsibilities in January.
