David Kalsbeek, senior vice president for Enrollment Management and Marketing at DePaul, has announced he will retire from the university on June 30.
A recognized leader and innovator in his field, Kalsbeek has successfully led enrollment development strategies at DePaul since 1997. During his tenure, DePaul achieved significant enrollment growth and increases in retention and completion rates, as well as record levels of student diversity. He led the marketing and enrollment components of four university-wide strategic plans and provided expert counsel to three university presidents and eight provosts, as well as the Board of Trustees, throughout his 22 years at DePaul.
“Under David’s direction, the division of Enrollment Management and Marketing has become a recognized leader in higher education,” says Salma Ghanem, acting provost at DePaul University. “Our university is stronger because of EMM’s innovative approaches, and I am grateful for David’s dedication to DePaul.”
The provost and president are considering plans for an interim appointment to ensure a smooth transition.
