 *HigherEd Careers: Enrollment Management: Art, Science, or the Job that
Everyone's Job Depends On?*  With Steven Klein, Associate Vice President for
Enrollment Management, Angelo State University

 The privilege of having a career in higher education is helping students
learn. The enrollment management professionals at your school are
responsible for formulating and implementing a plan that attracts the best
students to your institution. This month, we were able to gain many insights
into this critical role by sitting down with an accomplished professional in
the field, Steven Klein, Associate Vice President for Enrollment Management
at Angelo State University. After reading, we invite you to continue the
discussion in our LinkedIn
group<http://www.linkedin.com/groups?gid=1844698>or follow HigherEd
Careers on
Twitter <http://twitter.com/HigherEdCareers>.

Here are parts of the interview:      [image: Andrew Hibel Picture]  *Andrew
Hibel, HigherEdJobs:* *You are currently the Associate Vice President for
Enrollment Management at Angelo State University and have spent the better
part of 20 years practicing enrollment management. Would you briefly explain
what encompasses enrollment management at your university and how you chose
this profession?*    [image: Steven Klein Phillips Picture]  *Steven Klein,
Angelo State University:* Enrollment management is a rational, data-informed
and systematic approach to understanding the dynamics of enrollment at a
particular institution and to optimize enrollments based on those dynamics.
Angelo State has created an Enrollment Management Division for the first
time in its history as it is poised to grow from 6,000 to 10,000 students
over the next decade. Admissions, financial aid, registrar and career
services make up the direct reports to this unit, but we touch so many other
areas to achieve our results. We work with student life, residence life, the
academic community, multicultural services, athletics, alumni, development
on a regular basis -- there is really no part of a campus community with
whom we don't partner at some point. I chose the profession because I can
make a difference in people's lives and the satisfaction I get from knowing
that I am part of a team.       *Hibel:* *According to data released by the
U.S. Education Department this week, the draft national student loan default
rate for FY 2008 increased to 7.2 percent, compared to 6.7 percent in FY
2007 and 5.2 percent in FY 2006. Since students seeking financial aid are
often closely tied to enrollment numbers, do you see an increase of default
rates as a rising trend and how might it affect the enrollment management
process?*       *Klein:* Some of the increase can be attributed to the
change in the way the rate is being calculated, but the economic downturn
inevitably has affected the rate. Schools will need to pay more attention to
issues of student financial literacy and good loan counseling, both at the
student's point of entry to when the student exits the campus. Often,
students just don't know understand their obligations, rights and
opportunities. Loans are often an unavoidable component to meet the cost of
education. Fear of loans can cause families to make poor choices -- but that
fear remains a reality. The increases in default rates have made such
headlines, as has dour economic news regarding job losses and security, that
it is likely that many students and families will base college attendance on
cost rather than fit, and some, unfortunately will simply choose to avoid or
delay college.       * To read the full interview, click
 *What American Idol Doesn't Know About Talent*
by Peter Weddle   Whatever the judges on American Idol may say, all
Americans are created equal in terms of talent. That's right, every single
one of us is a person of talent. We may celebrate the sounds of Taylor Hicks
or Kelly Clarkson, but that doesn't mean they're talented and everyone else

How can that be? Because talent isn't the exceptional feats of exceptional
people. Talent is the capacity for excellence, and that is an attribute
common to all people.

Talent has two aspects. It is what a person loves to do -- their passion --
*and* what they do best-their area of peak performance. As American Idol
proves every season, a person can be passionate about singing or dancing,
but not good enough to earn a living at it. They can also be very good at
their work, but hate every minute they spend on the job.

When a person is working at their talent, in contrast, they are engaged and
challenged by the tasks they perform and even the obstacles they face. They
are also able to excel at those tasks and thus feel proud and fulfilled by
the outcomes they accomplish.
