Albert Colom to take reins of enrollment management

Albert Colom, the University’s new vice provost for enrollment management, brings broad experience and a comprehensive vision to the challenge of creating a strategic enrollment plan for BGSU. Colom begins his duties here this week.

“I want to help take BGSU to the next level of educational excellence,” said Colom, who comes to Bowling Green from Oklahoma State University where he has been vice president for enrollment management since 2006.

“Enrollment is critical to BGSU’s success and our number one priority,” President Carol Cartwright said. "With his extensive background in strategic enrollment management, Albert is well prepared to lead and energize our efforts."
 
In this new BGSU position, Colom will join the Academic Affairs leadership team and will be responsible for all new and continuing student enrollment strategies, including graduate and undergraduate student recruitment, admissions and retention, financial aid, registration and records, scholarships and tuition discounting, advising and academic success, and international and multicultural student enrollment, along with initiatives for BGSU Firelands and adult degree- completion and distance-learning programs.
