Nazareth College has named Meaghan Arena its new vice president for enrollment and student experience, starting in February.

Arena most recently worked as a vice president for enrollment at SUNY Geneseo. In her 16 years of experience in higher education enrollment manager, Arena also has worked at Cambridge College and Westfield State University in western Massachusetts, and taught marketing management, student development theory and enrollment management at Cambridge and  Stony Brook University.

President Daan Braveman said Arena’s “experience and vision in this forward-thinking position — unusual among small colleges — will provide the strategic vision and leadership for the college’s enrollment and student experience programs, ensuring an integrated and dynamic student experience from application through graduation.”

Arena holds a doctorate in education from Northeastern University, a master’s degree in education from Cambridge, and a bachelor’s degree in political science from the University of Delaware.

Nazareth’s former vice president for enrollment and student experience, Ian Mortimer, took a similar position in enrollment management at Rochester Institute of Technology in June.
