Dr. Maurin selected as Chief Enrollment Management Officer


A new Chief Enrollment Management Officer has been selected within the Office of the Provost.

Dr. Kay Maurin, previously the Assistant Vice President for Enrollment Management, received the title change in July 2019.

In her new position, Maurin provides leadership and management to the Office of Admissions, the Office of Financial Aid, the Office of Military and Veterans Success, Enrollment Services and Records and Testing.

Maurin discussed the primary responsibilities of her position.

“I work to engage faculty and staff in recruitment and retention efforts,” explained Maurin. “I constantly review data in support of our recruitment and retention efforts and make recommendations on how to share and apply the data as well as develop strategies to grow key areas.” 

With a new semester approaching, Maurin described what she looks forward to accomplishing.




“I’m very excited for the year ahead,” expressed Maurin. “We will be embarking on the strategic enrollment management planning process. This process will bring together all areas of the university to determine our enrollment and retention goals for the next five years.”

Prior to obtaining the new title, Maurin worked at the university for approximately 18 years in a variety of roles. 

She has worked alongside the Director of Student Organizations/Greek Life, Director of Disability Services, Director of University Housing, and the previous Chief Enrollment Management Officer.

Maurin shared how her education and prior experience prepared her for the new position.

“I have a doctorate of philosophy in education leadership, research and counseling that I earned in 2013,” said Maurin. “I feel that my educational background and my experience in multiple areas of the university has prepared me to lead the enrollment efforts of the university.”

Maurin expressed what she believes is the most rewarding part of her job.

 “It is so rewarding to have a hand in creating an environment where students can learn and grow,” shared Maurin. “Perhaps one thing that I find incredibly rewarding is meeting proud alumni who credit Southeastern in changing the course of their lives.”

For Maurin, working at the university and helping students with their futures has been a humbling experience.

“We all play a role, sometimes big and sometimes small, in shaping the future of all our students,” mentioned Maurin. “I’m so humbled and honored to work here.”
