Chancellors back creating enrollment director

The three campus chancellors at the University of Illinois have signed on to the creation of a new university "executive director for enrollment management," a key priority of President Michael Hogan.

Hogan and trustees are eager to move forward with the post as quickly as possible, spokesman Tom Hardy said Monday.

"He's listened and he wants to hear what everyone has to say and be sensitive to" their concerns, Hardy said.

The idea of an enrollment management director was part of a consultants' report that included 21 recommendations for managing admissions, financial aid and other enrollment matters across the three campuses.

The position was spotlighted in an December 13, 2011, article in the Champaign News-Gazette.
