New England Law|Boston is searching for its inaugural Chief Enrollment Officer (CEO) who will bring a strategic and ambitious vision for enrollment growth to Boston’s historic, independent law school. New England Law is a financially-secure law school that was founded in 1908 as Portia Law School, the first law school in the nation established exclusively for women; today its diverse student body includes men and women from around the world.
The ideal candidate is entrepreneurial, creative, and strategic in setting and meeting goals for enrollment management. The new Chief Enrollment Officer will have a significant impact on the school’s future by leading the institution’s efforts to recruit, admit, enroll, and retain a talented student body.
Reporting to the Dean, the Chief Enrollment Officer will fill a key position and join an experienced and collaborative senior management group that includes the Associate Deans, Chief Financial Officer, and Chief Marketing Officer. Led by the recommendations of the Chief Enrollment Officer, this team will review all elements of admission, financial aid, and retention efforts. The Chief Enrollment Officer will also be primarily responsible for overseeing the work and staff of the admission and registrar’s offices, as well as working with faculty on admission activities. The Chief Enrollment Officer must be an experienced leader with the skills to use data effectively to plan for sustained growth and improvement in student preparation for law school. The Chief Enrollment Officer must also demonstrate deep experience with the strategic leveraging of financial aid awards to maximize enrollment results.
Located in the heart of Boston’s legal community, New England Law offers exceptional academic programs; a friendly, diverse community; and experiential learning opportunities that are among the most varied in the nation. Eight U.S. Supreme Court justices have visited New England Law in recent years and lectured at the school, or taught in the school’s summer-abroad programs.
