Nazareth College is pleased to announce that Ian Mortimer is the College’s new vice president for enrollment management. Mortimer comes to Nazareth with 20 years experience in higher education enrollment management and marketing.
“Being a native of Rochester, I have known, and always admired, the role that Nazareth plays in transforming the lives of both traditional and adult students,” says Mortimer. “However, it wasn’t until I met with the faculty, staff, and leadership that I became aware of just how many amazing opportunities are made available in all facets of the Nazareth experience. I am truly looking forward to joining Nazareth’s inclusionary community.”
President Daan Braveman says, “I and the entire Nazareth community are very excited that Ian will be joining the College and bringing his experience and many talents.”
Mortimer previously served as vice president for enrollment management at Champlain College in Burlington, Vt., where he led all facets of the undergraduate and graduate enrollment operations. During his tenure at Champlain, the college experienced significant enrollment growth, rose in market position, and became more accessible to under-served populations. Mortimer feels he left the college with lots of momentum for the challenges of the future. “Success at Champlain has been grounded in collaboration, innovation, and being mindful of what students and parents need in the 21st century,” Mortimer says. “I see many similar opportunities at Nazareth that will further position the College as one of the nation’s most student-centric institutions, and I am looking forward to the work that will attract and graduate the next generation of responsible leaders.”
Mortimer began his career in college admissions at St. Bonaventure University, along with American University and Walden University, before moving into higher education client services with enrollment management firms like Datatel and Inside Track, Inc.
He earned his M.B.A. from the Rochester Institute of Technology Saunders School of Business and his master’s degree in counseling psychology and bachelor’s degree in English from St. Bonaventure University.
