President Hurwitz sent a memo to the campus community on Monday, October 28, 2013, announcing the selection of the new Chief Enrollment Manager Officer (CEMO).
Dear Campus Community,
It is my pleasure to announce that I have selected Ms. Charity Reedy to be the University's chief enrollment management officer (CEMO).
Charity has served as interim CEMO since July of 2011, providing leadership for undergraduate enrollment and financial aid, leading the establishment of an enrollment council and the development of a University-wide enrollment plan, and overseeing the Office of Admissions, the Office of Financial Aid, the Visitors Center, and Youth and Outreach Programs.
Prior to this position, Charity served as executive director of admissions and financial aid and as director of admissions for the University since 2002. She also served in other capacities for the University from 1987 to 1998 before leaving for a three-year appointment as executive director of the West Virginia Commission for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing, serving 268,000 deaf and hard of hearing citizens in that state.
Most importantly, as Charity stated in her campus-wide presentation, her commitment to Gallaudet goes beyond her job: She has a deep personal commitment to the continued success of the University in terms of enrollment and in promoting our community and our quality academics. And, as she stated so eloquently in her application, her greatest strength is "building relationships with both internal and external constituents . one that will ensure the continued success of the enrollment management process at Gallaudet for years to come."
Charity holds a B.A. in psychology and an M.A. in deaf education: family centered early childhood education, both from Gallaudet University. I'd also like to note that this past weekend marked the Silver Anniversary Reunion for the Class of 1988, of which Charity is a member.
I'd like to thank the CEMO Selection Committee members, chaired by Dean Isaac Agboola, for their diligence and hard work at ensuring a robust interviewing process. I'd also like to thank those who attended the public presentations for each candidate and provided thoughtful comments on both. Your feedback had a direct impact on the final selection, and for that I am very appreciative.
Please join me in congratulating Charity in her new role as CEMO.
