Currently, Director of Enrollment Operations at Pfeiffer University, Michael brings 20 years of experience in higher education for online and on‐campus programs for working adults, excellent project management and technical skills, and a great eye for detail, all of which should make me an ideal candidate for this position.   He helped to launch Pfeiffer’s online education program from scratch in 1999 and has been recruiting for Pfeiffer’s graduate and degree completion programs ever since with positive results.

As Director of Enrollment for Digital Learning, Michael will lead the enrollment management efforts for Degree Completion (DCP) and Graduate Programs (GRAD) by forming and sustaining a strong team approach to recruiting and retaining students by deploying staff appropriately and by utilizing technology and recruitment strategies effectively.  He will report to the Associate Provost for Digital Learning and work collaboratively with Deans and Chairs of Schools and Departments housing DCP and GRAD programs, the Director of Digital Learning, and the Director of Marketing and Communications Strategies, among other key leaders.
