University of Houston President Renu Khator announced on Monday that Enrollment Services — which has been part of the Division of Student Affairs and Enrollment Services for the past nine years — will be moving under the Office of the Provost.
The transition will begin immediately, Khator announced.
This transition, she said, is to help UH meet its “ambitious goals” set out in the university’s strategic plan.
“In our journey to become a top 50 public university, it is important that all academic decisions related to student access and success are integrated and reside in the provost’s office,” she said.
The transition which will begin before Provost Paula Short retires so she can lay the groundwork, and the division’s name will change to the Division of Student Affairs. All of Enrollment Services’ departments will make the transition:
- Office of the University Registrar
- Scholarships and Financial Aid
- Campus Solutions Services
- Integrated Enrollment Services
- Enrollment Services Research and Reporting
- Enrollment Services Communication and Marketing
Dr. Daniel Maxwell will remain the interim vice president and vice chancellor for the Division of Student Affairs, which will now focus exclusively on enhancing support and experience for both residential and commuter students.
“I am honored to continue leading the Division of Student Affairs with our talented, innovative, and visionary team as UH advances to a top 50 university and beyond,” Maxwell said. “We remain committed to supporting our students in their success as they thrive at UH with an exceptional student life experience.”
