Tony Pace held roles at College Board, Trinity, and Vanderbilt Twitter
Vice President for Enrollment Management Greg MacDonald announced that Tony Pace will join the enrollment division in September.
With more than 30 years of service in account and relationship management at The College Board and at institutions including Trinity College, College of the Holy Cross, and Vanderbilt University, Pace will add valuable perspective to the team as it enters its fourth year of an enrollment growth plan.
That plan, part of the College’s strategic direction, is built on the platform of “Affordability and Distinction through Growth.”
“The very best liberal arts colleges are able to admit the very best students, without considering their ability to pay,” says President Alison Byerly. “Doing so sustains and even improves the quality of the student body and diversifies it at the same time. Living and learning with people from a wide range of backgrounds and experiences is at the heart of a residential liberal arts education.”
Pace will serve under the new title of associate director for strategic initiatives and work directly with MacDonald and Matt Hyde, assistant vice president and dean of admissions. He will balance some admissions counselor duties along with an emphasis on data management, enrollment strategies, and territory expansion.
Pace is also experienced with leveraging financial aid and its use in college admissions, which dovetails with the recent changes to the Marquis Awards.
“I am delighted to welcome a recognized admissions professional to our team,” says MacDonald. “He will play a key role in helping the College to build a strong and diverse student body over the next few years.”
“His energy and talent are a perfect fit for our Cur Non mindset,” says Hyde. “His story is one of always thinking Why Not. His strategies and approaches will further inspire our team.”
