Colom promoted to VP for enrollment management

BOWLING GREEN, O.—Albert Colom, Bowling Green State University’s vice provost for enrollment management, has been promoted to vice president for enrollment management. He will report to the senior vice president for academic affairs and provost.

“Albert has proven his ability to tackle tough challenges, embrace change and take on these significant new responsibilities,” BGSU President Carol Cartwright said. “Enrollment is the key to fulfilling our mission. It is critical that we align our resources with our priorities. Albert will continue to energize our enrollment efforts."

Colom will be responsible for all new and continuing-student enrollment strategies, including recruitment and marketing, admissions and retention, financial aid, registration and records, scholarships and tuition discounting, advising and academic success, along with initiatives for the University’s regional campus, adult degree completion, academic technology and distance learning programs. In addition to admissions, financial aid and the registrar, Colom will oversee Northwest Ohio Educational Technology (NWOET) and the University’s career center.

“This is a natural extension of Albert’s current role,” said Dr. Kenneth Borland, senior vice president for academic affairs and provost. “We’re confident in his abilities to take our enrollment efforts to the next level.”

Prior to joining BGSU, Colom was vice president for enrollment management at Oklahoma State University. He also worked in a variety of enrollment management roles at other large, public institutions including Florida Atlantic University and the University of South Florida. 

He received a bachelor’s degree in international studies, a master’s degree in educational leadership, and was a doctoral candidate in higher education administration, all at the University of South Florida.
