The Mission: As a diverse community of learners, we cultivate integrity, curiosity, connection and resilience.

The Vision: Albright College endeavors to be an equitable, sustainable, inclusive learning community and a leader in advancing lives in our dynamic world.

The Latin phrase Veritas et JustitiaTruth and Justice—appears on the Albright College seal and affirms that the search for knowledge should not be separated from the search for wise and just solutions in human affairs and in the stewardship of the natural world. The combination of truth and justice means that, at Albright, we honor, nurture and celebrate human diversity in all its forms and call into question whatever negates or endangers the dignity and worth of the human spirit.

President Jacquelyn Fetrow returned to Albright College, her alma mater, in 2017 and noted at the time, “I’m thrilled and proud to return to Albright College, to Reading, and to central Pennsylvania. As a direct beneficiary of Albright’s interdisciplinary educational model grounded in the liberal arts, I know from experience and observation the lifelong value that Albright offers. Together, we will build on the foundation that has been laid and forge Albright’s future. I look forward to continuing my life journey, with you, here at Albright.”

Today, Albright is seeking a Vice President of Enrollment Management who will join President Fetrow and a strong leadership team in building upon the foundational strengths of Albright and lead the college to a bold and vibrant future. This is an opportunity for a seasoned enrollment manager who is well aware of today’s challenges for small, private colleges and has both the imagination and grounding in best enrollment practices to shape Albright’s future.

Located in Berks County, Albright College is in Reading, PA, both an industrial city and agricultural community located about 70 miles northwest of Philadelphia. The beautiful 118-acre campus is peppered with ample circles of red Adirondack chairs facing each other, reminding visitors that this is a place that values connections among and between community members. Grounded in the liberal arts, Albright offers bachelor’s degrees in 19 divisions, and a 4+1 program in education that includes the bachelor’s degree, master’s degree and teacher certification. The School of Professional Studies provides adult learners an accelerated undergraduate degree program in seven areas of study, two certificate programs, and a master’s degree program.

The history of Albright dates back to 1856 when it began as Union Seminary and following a series of mergers through the 19th century, Albright College emerged in 1898 as a college and a rigorous liberal arts curriculum with a clear interdisciplinary focus. Albright’s hallmarks are connecting fields of learning, collaborative teaching and learning, and a flexible curriculum that allows students to create an individualized education. Over 40% of Albright students follow or create a program of study that combines two or three disciplines.

Albright College has been named one of the most ethnically and economically diverse colleges in the country, ranking 33rd out of 208 national liberal arts colleges by Princeton Review. It is consistently ranked as one of the “Best Northeastern Schools” by the same publication.


The Opportunity

A private college enrolling close to 2,000 undergraduate students, Albright seeks an ambitious Vice President of Enrollment Management who will oversee the departments of Admissions and Financial Aid and who will engage with campus collaborators at this transformative moment in Albright’s history. Partnering with President Fetrow, they will join the President’s Cabinet in their goal to increase the number of students at Albright as well as raise net tuition revenue in a way consistent with the college’s tradition of innovation and creativity and always putting student success at the center of the mission. The new Vice President will have the full support of the Board of Trustees and the President in achieving these goals.

A significant opportunity for the new Vice President is to engage in work surrounding realistic pricing. Over the last 18 months, President Fetrow has led an in-depth study and planning process, which is ongoing. One recommendation which was quickly implemented will reduce tuition by 45% beginning in the 2019-20 academic year. This recommendation aligns with the college’s commitment to student success.  In her announcement to the community, President Fetrow said, “So the real value of lowering tuition today will be twofold: significantly smaller actual-dollar tuition increases in the future and our commitment to accessibility that will expand with a new scholarship fundraising initiative for rising sophomores, juniors and seniors” The Vice President for Enrollment Management will lead efforts to effectively implement this new pricing strategy.


Responsibilities and Duties

The new Vice President of Enrollment Management will:

  • Lead, inspire, supervise, hire and evaluate the members of the Admissions and Financial Aid teams. Create a collaborative work environment and empower the division to exceed expectations. Provide opportunities for professional development.

  • Communicate routinely, transparently and proactively with the President and the cabinet, staff and colleagues on current trends, enrollment numbers, providing updates and impacts throughout the enrollment cycle.
  • Introduce forward-thinking strategies and innovations to the work of the enrollment management team with the goal of advancing Albright College.
  • Collaborate meaningfully and effectively with faculty; encourage and support their engagement with recruitment while respecting the demands on their time and talent.

Additionally, a post-baccalaureate premedical certification program is available. Affirming the value of learning outside the classroom, Albright also offers the Experiential Learning and Career Development Center that assists students in exploring majors, careers, and experiential learning opportunities that enhance Albright’s core learning goal of “engaging the world.”


Student Life and Athletics at Albright

Albright’s campus is a residential one that encourages students “to study, work and socialize in a thriving, inclusive and equitable community.” As Albright implements its new four-year residency requirement, about 10% of students live off campus, mostly as true commuters. Albright’s vibrant student life is supported through the Office of Student and Campus Life. Student organizations are supported through the Office of Student Involvement and Leadership that provides resources and support for student activities, clubs and organizations, campus events and leadership opportunities.

Albright College was recently awarded over $2.2 million in a Title III grant to be used over the next five years to substantially change the approach to learning and student success in the first year of higher education. The program is designed to help students develop the skills and confidence needed to achieve academic success and integrates student learning with personal and career goals, supporting both retention and improved graduation rates.

The Albright Lions compete in NCAA Division III athletics as a member of the Middle Atlantic Conference.

Reading, Pennsylvania

Reading is located halfway between Philadelphia, the state’s most populous city, and Harrisburg, the state capitol and was part of the major transportation route for coal being mined in western Pennsylvania and then transported to the Port of Philadelphia on the Reading Railroad. Reading’s population is approximately 88,000 and has become a destination for cycling enthusiasts thanks to 125 trails within five preserves in and around the city.

Home to Albright College, three other institutions of higher learning also share the city: Alvernia University, Penn State Berks, and Reading Area Community College. Reading was one of the first localities where outlet shopping became a tourist industry. Reading is also home to the Fightin’ Phils, the minor league affiliate to the Philadelphia Phillies. Cultural institutions in Reading include the Reading Symphony Orchestra, the Reading Choral Society, Berks Chamber Choir, the GoggleWorks Art Gallery, the Reading Public Museum and the Historical Society of Berks County.

Surrounded by the Schuylkill River and the verdant hills of Pennsylvania, Reading is transitioning from its factory and transportation roots, boasts of affordable housing costs, and will always be known for its many bakeries, thus giving Reading the nickname “Pretzel City.”
