Our team constantly changes. It is unique for every client. Does this mean that we have a big company with hundreds of staff members?
No! It means that the team for every client is Ron, Dori, the key people we are working with at the school, and others who may need to be involved such as outside assistants in financial aid. They are all members of our success team helping to get things done – the right way and your way.
We are strong believers in the use of integrated enrollment teams. These teams work with the development of enrollment strategy and must have the support of the most senior people.
We do, however, recognize that not all activities related to enrollment management need to have a team. It is important to recognize when one needs to do things alone. There is, sometimes, a need to get things done that responds best to individual initiative.
Ronald J. Ingersoll, PhD
Ron has worked in the area of enrollment management and student success since 1974. He and his wife and partner participated and developed many of the first’s in enrollment management including: the first enrollment management software; the use of marketing/communication flows; research; the use of training with enrollment representatives; financial aid leveraging and the use of metrics.
Ron has his doctorate from Cornell University in Physical Biology. In his career, he has been a faculty member, department Chair, enrollment director, vice president, and, throughout his work in these roles, a consultant and change agent.
Doris M. Ingersoll, PhD.
Dori Ingersoll has been working in the field of enrollment management since 1979, when she and Ron bought out their partner, Stuart Weiner and went into business for themselves. She has brought a process orientation to the work with colleges stemming from her Organizational Development Master’s work and her doctorate in Organizational Communication from the University of Denver.
Over the past 17 years, she has taught as an adjunct for several Tampa Bay area colleges, so her experience as a faculty member has enhanced her understanding of client schools.
The Project Team
These people are on board to get the right things done, in the right way, at the right time. This is not a strategic team, but one that works to implement recommendations in the best way possible.
The Schools or Organizations
Our clients have been our partners in success. Each of them contributed to the overall success of our work together and our growth as individuals and as organizations. Our best results have been when that partnership continued long after the original work ended.
While the number of schools we worked with is large, their capacity for contributing to the success of their students seems unlimited.
And of course, our team would not be complete without our esteemed assistant, Hobbes. Here he is taking a bow for his work.
