Cornell University recently announced the appointment of Jonathan Burdick as its vice provost for enrollment initiatives and college dean of admissions and financial aid. It’s a title that is quite the mouthful if you ask us but it all essentially boils down to Burdick taking charge of Cornell’s admissions office. Since 2003, Burdick has served as the senior enrollment office at the University of Rochester. Before his tenure at Rochester, he served as associate dean for admissions at the University of Southern California’s College of Letters, Arts and Sciences. Before that, Burdick was the regional director and associate director of admissions at USC.

As Susan Kelley reports for Cornell Chronicle in a piece entitled “Jonathan Burdick named vice provost for enrollment,” “As Cornell’s vice provost for enrollment, Burdick will oversee admissions, financial aid and the university registrar. He is charged with strategically positioning Cornell to better achieve its institutional goals and priorities, while also supporting and strengthening the specific enrollment-related needs and goals of the university’s colleges and schools. He will spearhead the university’s self-study in admissions, financial aid and registrar with the intent to enhance and evolve Cornell’s current practices.”

Congratulations to Jonathan Burdick on his appointment as the leader of Cornell’s undergraduate admissions office!
