Student Success Begins With Enrollment
Celebrating Our Enrollment Heroes
By Marie Jacinto
Congratulations to last week’s Enrollment Heroes in the UHD 15,500 Enrollment Challenge: Jerry Nevarez, Web Developer & Publications Manager for Enrollment Management, and Dr. Marilyn Dement, Assistant Director of Graduate Studies for the Marilyn Davies College of Business.
These two extraordinary individuals were nominated by their peers for their hard work, dedication, and contributions toward UHD’s 15,500 Enrollment Challenge for the Fall 2022 semester. The Challenge also aims to help our students register for 152,000 credit hours, which will accelerate degree completion. The program invites the campus community to submit nominations of current UHD faculty and staff who are going above and beyond to support the institution’s enrollment campaign.
Everyone can play a part in reaching our enrollment goal! Be sure to keep up with the campaign challenge’s progress by checking out the Gator Meter, which tracks UHD’s progress to the 15,500 goal. And if you know of a faculty or staff member who is giving their all toward reaching our goal, please nominate them as an Enrollment Hero. Submissions must be entered by Friday at noon for the following week.
