and Academic Services
William Conley, currently dean of undergraduate admissions at Case Western Reserve University, has been appointed to the new position of dean of enrollment and academic services for The Johns Hopkins University's Homewood campus.
Conley, who will begin the new job on Aug. 8, will oversee Undergraduate Admissions, Student Financial Services, the Office of the Registrar, Academic Advising for the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences, and Pre-Professional Advising and the Career Center for the Krieger School and the Whiting School of Engineering.
"Bill Conley is a superb addition to Johns Hopkins," said Daniel Weiss, the James B. Knapp Dean of Arts and Sciences. "He brings to the university substantial experience in admissions and enrollment services as well as a commitment to building on our traditional academic strengths. He will help us to move forward with a new market focus and in enhancing student services to support the academic mission of the Whiting and Krieger schools. We are fortunate to have him joining us."
Ilene Busch-Vishniac, dean of the Whiting School, said, "Although not yet here, Bill has already begun to interact with both the staff who will report to him and with friends of Homewood Student Affairs. He has shown himself to be a skilled listener and quick learner. I am confident that he will quickly assimilate the unique qualities of Hopkins while bringing Homewood a fresh perspective on what is possible."
The addition of Conley completes a restructuring process designed to divide the responsibilities for student affairs to better serve the undergraduate body. As dean of enrollment and academic services, Conley will be half of the team responsible for undergraduate concerns. His counterpart is Susan Boswell, dean of student life, who directs nonacademic services.
Conley has been dean of undergraduate admissions at Case Western Reserve in Cleveland since 1990. He has served in admissions positions at Lafayette College, Drew University and Harvard, where he received his master's degree in education in 1980 while serving as special assistant to the dean of students. He is a 1976 graduate of Colgate University.
