Enrolment leaders face disillusionment, frustration, burnout: Editorial


Enrolment leaders and admissions staff are facing unprecedented levels of disillusionment, frustration, and burnout, writes Eric Hoover in an article for The Chronicle of Higher Education. Hoover provides a snapshot of the experiences of 23 current and former enrolment officials working in US higher ed. He writes that the increasing pressure to bring in more students and increase tuition revenue each year is proving to be too much for many professionals, especially as they find their work schedule increasing without improved pay. As a result, Hoover notes that many admissions and enrolment professionals are leaving their jobs in search of a profession with a healthier work-life-balance.
