After a nationwide search, Stephanie Levenson has been named John Carroll University’s new vice president for enrollment management.
The University’s new President, Michael Johnson, said, “We are confident that Stephanie will have a major impact on John Carroll’s enrollment management goals.”
Levenson is not new to higher education enrollment management. She has more than 20 years of experience in undergraduate recruitment, marketing and financial aid strategies.
“She has the operational expertise and leadership style to empower her team to navigate the complex process of recruiting high-achieving, talented students who are the right fit for JCU,” stated Johnson.
Levenson’s most recent role was serving as the executive director of admission at Elmhurst College. Prior to that role, Levenson was the senior assistant director of admission at Loyola University Chicago. She managed all of the details for recruitment in Chicago and New England, and coordinated admissions for international students in both Europe and Asia.
Some of Levenson’s achievements include recruiting the largest incoming class of first-year and transfer students in Elmhurst’s history as well as increasing the average first-year class size by 160 percent over eight years.
Levenson commented on joining the Carroll community, “This is an exciting time to join the John Carroll University community and I look forward to working with President Johnson and the rest of campus to recruit men and women for and with others.”
Levenson has a Master of Education degree from Loyola University Chicago and Bachelor of Arts degree in Sociology from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Levenson is also a graduate of the Enrollment Leadership Academy of the College Board, a selective professional development program designed for admission and financial aid professionals who are committed to advancing the field of enrollment management.
