Katie Miota has served as the interim chief enrollment officer since March. Prior to that, she worked for nine years in UWM’s Office of Undergraduate Admissions, most recently as its director, and for two years as a recruiter in the Peck School of the Arts. As UWM’s director of admissions, Miota led efforts resulting in impressive growth in UWM’s fall 2018 enrollments of Illinois and transfer students. She also led the complex operations and systems changes needed for UWM to provide recruitment, registration, financial aid and other services to students at its new Washington County and Waukesha campuses.
As chief enrollment officer, Miota will lead the Chancellor’s Enrollment Management Action Team and be responsible for advancing UWM’s inaugural Strategic Enrollment Management plan.
Chancellor Mark Mone announced the appointments to UWM faculty and staff earlier this year.
“Student success is our top priority,” he said. “Student services and enrollment management are critical to UWM’s future. The experience and expertise that Kelly and Katie bring are the right mix for the rapid changes we face in higher education today.”
