Welcome back to America's leading higher education podcast, The EdUp Experience! In this episode, MJ Knoll-Finn, Senior Vice President for Enrollment Management & Student Success at New York University is your guest, & your sponsor is Glacier!
NYU has been extremely successful during the pandemic (over 100,000 applications in 2021). MJ and Joe talk about the looming enrollment cliff, tuition discounting, and how the media gets it wrong when talking about "private universities". MJ recognizes the "arms race" that is taking place in higher ed with consequences being that kids are being told that they need to attend elite schools or no school at all. She discusses how NYU has survived and thrived during the pandemic in terms of safety and on-ground attendance. She also discussed the global impact of NYU, its focus on diversity, equity, and inclusion, and what the future of enrollment management looks like.
A national leader in Enrollment Management, MJ Knoll-Finn heads a highly strategic and data-driven division that has increased the pipeline of talented and diverse students to NYU and supports their success through to graduation. She has a proven track record of increasing diversity, academic quality, and retention and graduation rates in a variety of academic institutions. As a thought leader in the industry, with almost 30 years of experience, she frequently speaks at national and regional conferences on current trends in higher education and the strategic use of data in enrollment strategy and institutional positioning. She is an active member of The College Board, serving on various committees over the years.
