Westminster College Appoints New Vice President of Enrollment Management

Salt Lake City-Feb. 26, 2004-Westminster College recently appointed Joel Bauman as its new vice president of enrollment management. Bauman will play a significant role in helping the college continue its drive to be more nationally recognized as an exemplary community of learners and by recruiting a high caliber of students to the college. In addition, he will work to educate the public about admissions and financial aid issues that affect families locally and nationwide.

Bauman has experience recruiting students in diverse settings, which include the Hebrew University, University of Tampa and New School University in New York. Most recently, he served as dean of admissions and financial aid at New College of Florida, which is the honors college of the state university system and nationally recognized as one of the most innovative learning environments in the country. He has been quoted in the Wall Street Journal and U.S. News & World Report and has attended the Harvard University Admissions Institute.

"I am thrilled by the opportunity to work with the renowned Westminster faculty, to learn from its smart and ambitious students, and to help guide prospective students and their families through the process of choosing the right school," said Bauman. "This is an especially exciting moment since it coincides with the launch of the college's new ten-year strategic plan. This new vision will help the college continue rising to new levels of visibility, prominence and educational excellence. Enrollment planning is a key factor in that new vision."

Westminster College is the only private, comprehensive liberal arts college in Utah and one of the very few in the Intermountain West. The college is small, nondenominational and focused intensively on student learning. It prepares its students for success through a strong foundation of liberal education combined with cutting edge professional programs at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. U.S. News & World Report consistently ranks Westminster in the top tier of regional colleges and universities in the West, and as an excellent educational value. For more information visit
