Sloane-Garris Appointed Executive Director of Graduate Enrollment
Amy Sloane-Garris has been appointed as executive director of graduate enrollment. This newly established role was created at the recommendation of a graduate admissions working group, with the goal to bring greater campus coordination to the University’s professional graduate recruiting.
“Syracuse University has more than 200 excellent graduate-level programs,” says Sloane-Garris. “Some are world renowned, and others are gems waiting to be discovered. My charge is to collaborate with school and college leadership to strategically enhance and refine our graduate recruiting, as well as improve SU’s overall position in the marketplace.”
“I’m pleased to have Amy join my leadership team,” says Chris Sedore, senior vice president for Enrollment Management. “Her data-driven approach, broad knowledge of SU’s programs at the graduate and undergraduate level, and marketing background make her well suited to focus on the development and implementation of integrated professional graduate program marketing and recruiting plans. In addition to working across the schools and colleges, Amy will partner with the Office of Marketing and Communications to further the institutional-level effort to present a unified brand in the domestic and international marketplaces.”
Sloane-Garris has an extensive background in higher education administration, including strategic planning and enrollment management (marketing, recruitment, data analysis and admissions) student services. She joined Syracuse University in 2003, and her most recent role was director of strategic initiatives in the Office of Admissions. Her prior positions at Syracuse included executive director of enrollment management for the iSchool, director of enrollment management of SU Abroad and executive director of marketing and recruitment for Enrollment Management.
Before joining Syracuse University, Sloane-Garris had a 19-year career in the telecommunications industry in marketing, strategic and business analysis and project management roles. She holds a bachelor’s degree in economics from State University of New York at Potsdam and an M.B.A. from Columbia College.
