Laura Stoll has been named vice provost and dean of enrollment management for Missouri University of Science and Technology, effective Oct. 1.
Stoll has served as interim vice provost and dean of enrollment management since Aug. 15, replacing former vice provost and dean Jay Goff. Previously, she served as Missouri S&T’s registrar for 13 years.
“I’m honored to have this opportunity to work together with the exceptional faculty and staff on our campus, and look forward to further enabling our students to become successful graduates,” Stoll says. “I plan to build upon the effective processes in the enrollment management division in order to help Missouri S&T meet its strategic enrollment goals.”
A member of the Missouri S&T staff since 1978, Stoll was chosen for the chief enrollment management position following a nationwide search, says Dr. Robert W. Schwartz, Missouri S&T interim provost.
“Laura has an outstanding record of service at Missouri S&T. She is highly regarded for her commitment to student retention and success,” Schwartz says. “I look forward to working with Laura as she moves to diversify our campus in the areas of gender, ethnicity and academic interest.”
Stoll will be responsible for leading the university’s enrollment management efforts, including admissions, student financial assistance, the registrar’s office, pre-college programs, new student programs, the Women’s Leadership Institute, Project Lead the Way, student diversity initiatives and recruitment marketing.
Stoll joined S&T in 1978 as assistant registrar, then began working with the student information system in the computer center a year later. In 1995, she was appointed associate registrar. She became registrar in 1998. Her role was expanded in 2008, when she was also named assistant vice provost for enrollment management while retaining her duties as registrar.
Stoll is a member of the American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers, the Missouri Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers and the Alliance/Higher Education Users Group for PeopleSoft. She was a member of the first class for the University of Missouri System’s Administrative Leadership Development Program in 2005.
Stoll holds a bachelor of arts degree in economics from the University of Missouri-Columbia and a master of education degree in higher education administration from the University of Missouri-St. Louis.
