Michael Joseph, an experienced higher education administrator and enrollment strategist, has been appointed to join Valparaiso University’s senior leadership team as vice president for enrollment management beginning Oct. 17.

As the chief enrollment officer, Joseph will lead the development and oversee the execution of the University’s comprehensive enrollment management plan. Joseph will work with the University’s senior leadership team to provide the vision, strategy and operational processes and direction necessary to deliver the University’s growth objectives. The University’s Strategic Plan calls for Valpo to grow to 6,000 students by 2015 from the current 4,100.

Joseph is excited to come to the university in this new role, “My family and I are thrilled to becoming members of what is already a terrific, relevant and important University, situated in a dynamic and forward-thinking community. I have been very impressed with the bold and aspirational vision that Valparaiso University has articulated clearly in its Strategic Plan. I can’t wait to work side by side with the entire Valpo community to help make that vision a reality.”

” Joseph brings an exceptional skillset, wide-ranging experience, an outstanding record of achievement, and the imaginative energy that the University needs to achieve the aggressive goals for growth outlined in our Strategic Plan,” said Mark Schwehn, Valparaiso University Provost.

Joseph comes to Valpo after serving in key administrative leadership positions overseeing enrollment operations at College Misericordia, Dominican University, North Central College and most recently at the University of Detroit Mercy (UDM). At UDM, Joseph served initially as Vice President for Enrollment Management in 2002, and in subsequent years assumed additional responsibility for Student Affairs, Intercollegiate Athletics, University Advancement and Academic Affairs. During the 2010-2011 school year, Michael served as the Interim President of the University while the national presidential search was under way.

Joseph has a Bachelor of Arts in sociology from Wheeling College and a Master of Arts in organizational management from College Misericordia.
