Jones named interim vice president of enrollment management

Norm Jones of Miramar Beach, Florida, a senior leader in enrollment management with more than 40 years of experience, has been named interim vice president of enrollment management at the University of Maine, effective Oct. 1.

Jones will serve through the national search to fill the permanent position. 

As a member of the Associated Board of Governors Interim Search Service, Jones has served at McMurry University and West Virginia State University as interim vice president for enrollment management in 2019–20 and 2021, respectively. 

In 2019, Jones retired from Newman University, where he was vice president for enrollment management. His career also includes senior leadership appointments to direct student recruitment and marketing initiatives, including branding and website development, at Delaware Valley University, Texas Lutheran University, Westminster College, Wesleyan College, University of Charleston, and Mercer University. 

Jones received an M.Ed. in counseling psychology from West Georgia University and was awarded an Honorary Doctor of Business Administration from the University of Charleston.

“We look forward to Norm joining our enrollment management team during the national search, and look forward to him sharing his experience in our 2024 recruitment cycle already underway,” says John Volin, UMaine executive vice president for academic affairs and provost. 

“He will be collaborating with Chris Richards, who will be starting in his new role as director of undergraduate enrollment management,” Volin says. “We thank Chris for his vision and leadership, and appreciate his continued commitment to UMaine student recruitment efforts.”
