Hendrix College Hires New Associate Vice President for Enrollment

CONWAY, Ark. (August 30, 2017) – Hendrix College alumnus Jeremy D. Dickerson ’04 has been named Associate Vice President for Enrollment and Director of Admission.

Dickerson returns to his alma mater after serving as Director of Undergraduate Admissions at Old Dominion University in Norfolk, Virginia, since 2014. During his tenure, Dickerson helped the institution increase applications 26 percent in one academic year, expanded access to underserved student populations, reversed staff turnover trends, and developed new student recruitment.

“We are excited to welcome Jeremy back to campus to serve in this critical role,” said Sam G. Nichols, Vice President for Enrollment. “He understands the undergraduate student recruitment landscape very well. Most importantly, he has a deep affinity for what makes the Hendrix experience so distinctive and so valuable and will be able to share that effectively with prospective students and families.”

After graduating from Hendrix in 2004, Dickerson earned a master’s degree from the University of Arkansas, where he managed the university’s telecounseling initiative as a graduate assistant and later served in a variety of enrollment positions, including Assistant Dean of Admissions.

"I am honored and humbled to serve as Associate Vice President and Director of Admission at Hendrix," Dickerson said. "I am eager to return to the place that drew me to higher education in the first place. I look forward to working with the enrollment team and the greater community to share the many compelling stories Hendrix has to tell prospective students and their families."

Dickerson will begin his new role at Hendrix on October 2.
