Private liberal arts & sciences college in Los Angeles, CA

The Assistant Dean of Admission, Coordinator of Student Athlete Recruitment will report to the Vice President of Enrollment. The position involves a high level of judgment and autonomy and combines a working knowledge of enrollment practices, policies, and procedures in Division III college athletics with strategic enrollment expertise at a selective, private liberal arts college.

The incumbent will help coordinate athletics’ contributions to the college’s enrollment goals. Working closely with the Offices of Marketing & Communications and Athletics, the incumbent will develop a robust, multilayered recruitment plan for student-athletes.

Occidental College is a Division III institution that participates in the Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SCIAC) made up of 9 colleges and universities. Approximately 25% of Occidental students participate in a varsity sport. When including club and intramural sports, up to 45% of the student body is involved in athletics. Occidental maintains a longstanding commitment to access and equity and as a result our current student body is 46% domestic students of color and 16% first generation college students. Our financial aid policies meet 100% of the demonstrated need of our students. The Office of Admission seeks a colleague who will identify innovative ways to help us build upon this strong foundation and work towards building a more anti-racist admission process for our prospective students with a specific focus towards a diverse student athlete pool. Our expectation is that the successful candidate will excel at working in a community that is broadly diverse with regard to race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, gender, nationality, sexual orientation, and religion.
