González named director of SU’s metropolitan admissions programs in Los Angeles
Syracuse University has announced the appointment of Claudia González as director of metropolitan admissions programs—Los Angeles, effective Nov. 2.
In this capacity, González will oversee the establishment of an SU admissions office in Los Angeles. This new office will enhance the University’s strong presence on the West Coast, and joins SU’s West Coast offices of Alumni Relations, Institutional Advancement and the LA Semester program in the same location.
González’s primary responsibilities will include the development and implementation of strategic recruitment and admissions plans; the coordination and implementation of all recruitment-related activities; enhancement of the University’s presence and visibility among various constituent groups in the area; and service as the University’s principal liaison in the Los Angeles metropolitan area for all matters pertaining to admissions and financial aid.
“A permanent West Coast admissions office will enable us to better serve prospective students and parents, counselors and other community based organizations and programs,” says Susan Donovan, dean of admissions at SU.
González has held admissions positions at Grinell, Oberlin and Harvey Mudd colleges, and was most recently the associate director of admissions at Cornell University’s College of Engineering. She is originally from Los Angeles.
