In this capacity, work with programs, colleges and departments to address the low producing program concerns of the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board. As a result of my work with departments and their faculty, UNT was able to successfully combine several graduate programs and gain temporary extensions for three doctoral programs. Responsible for directing TGS’ graduate student enrollment programs and managing the enrollment team. Prepared strategic plans for recruitment and collaborated on the creation of the graduate school’s strategic plan. Responsible for TGS outreach, and for developing initiatives to increase student diversity within graduate programs. To achieve our goals, I have increased our collaboration with UNT’s McNair and TRIO programs, and have been involved in presentations to those groups on our campus and at other venues. Redesigned the Masters in Interdisciplinary Studies to increase the accessibility of graduate education to a greater number of students. More than 15 years ago, I developed an interdisciplinary concentration in quality control within the graduate school’s Masters in Interdisciplinary Studies. Since joining the graduate school, I developed a concentration in humanities and another in applied analytics. These new programs have considerable velocity and the enrollment in the Interdisciplinary Masters has grown rapidly.

The Toulouse Graduate School has increased its recruitment efforts and is working to increase graduate enrollment and quality within UNT’s programs. I have examined TGS’s interaction with potential students and have developed strategies to make these interactions more student focused. Measures of the yield from the revised activities show that these efforts have been successful. All recruitment communications have been redesigned to be more personalized and more inviting to both potential and accepted students. As a result of my planning efforts, we have decreased our participation in several external events that offered limited benefit, but maintained our participation at fruitful events and have increased our engagement with students at these events. We now collect student contact information and maintain both telephone and Email contact with prospective students to foster their interest in UNT’s programs. We have also increased our internal outreach by hosting new internal events and improving our engagement in existing events. The first Toulouse Graduate School Open House took place in fall 2011 and of the 265 attendees, we had 120 (45.28%) prospective students apply or send test scores to UNT as a result.
