Head of enrollment joins UConn
May 9, 1997
Dolan Evanovich joined the University May 5 as associate provost for enrollment management.
The enrollment management office, which includes undergraduate admissions, financial aid, the scholarship office, tours and orientation, and the coordination of retention activities, was established in 1995 as a result of the strategic plan. Evanovich will report to Judith Meyer, interim vice provost for undergraduate education and instruction.
Evanovich was selected after a national search for "the breadth of what he brings to the University," Meyer said. "He clearly stood out from the other candidates in his understanding of the full array of enrollment management issues. He is very enthusiastic and knowledgeable about how the whole process of recruiting and retaining students is integrated."
Evanovich's responsibilities will include increasing the number of undergraduates and attracting the state's brightest students to the University, she said.
Evanovich joins UConn from Arizona State University, where he was director of undergraduate admissions since October 1995. Previously, he was director of admissions at Eastern Michigan University for five years. He also has served as associate director of admissions and as an Upward Bound program counselor at Lock Haven University of Pennsylvania, and as an assistant men's basketball coach at California University, Pennsylvania. Evanovich holds a bachelor's and a master's degree from California University.
Evanovich will replace Ann Huckenbeck, who will retire from the position of assistant vice president of enrollment management and director of admissions on June 1. A search for a new director of admissions is underway.
