Dear faculty and staff,
I’m very pleased to share that Eduardo Prieto will join the University of Mississippi as the first Vice Chancellor for Enrollment Management after a successful national search. A native of Oklahoma, Eduardo brings more than 20 years of higher education experience across several institutions. He offers deep expertise in enrollment management, competitive admission efforts, student recruitment and financial aid, among other areas.
Eduardo will join us in March from Winthrop University in Rock Hill, South Carolina, where he has served as vice president for access and enrollment management since 2014. He will oversee our newly created Office of Enrollment Management, which will bring together the Offices of Admissions and Financial Aid into a combined team of 70 professionals.
The Office of Enrollment Management is an investment that will deliver greater administrative focus and strategic emphasis on building our future, and we are very excited for the seasoned leadership and energy that Eduardo brings. We’re eager to see how his leadership will invigorate university-wide enrollment work and lead efforts for financial aid strategies to maximize support for future generations of students.
To learn more, please read the full announcement. When Eduardo arrives on campus later this semester, please join me in warmly welcoming him and his wife, Traci, to our community.
