A message from Jeff Blahnik

Senior Associate Vice President, Division of Enrollment Management

Executive Director, Office of Admissions & Recruitment

Welcome to the Division of Enrollment Management at the University of Oklahoma!

The three student support teams of Admissions and Recruitment, Financial Aid and Scholarships, and the Office of the Registrar in our division collaborate and integrate services to provide student-centered enrollment support throughout all stages of a student’s educational journey. Meanwhile, our Enrollment Communications, Strategic Technology, and Administration and Compliance teams support the front facing departments and ensure that everyone is working together to aid students. There is a continuum of experience and expectation between the point of being a prospective student through graduation. For a student to have a great experience, their recruitment and admission, financial aid and scholarships, and enrollment experiences must be of high quality. There are many choices in the ever-changing landscape of higher education, and it is up to our team to ensure we attract and serve great students and that they can thrive at the University of Oklahoma.

Higher education has the power to change lives and because of that, we take our role in an OU’s student’s experience very seriously. There is a strong correlation between student satisfaction and recruitment and retention, so our success as a division is predicated on our ability to help students find both academic and social success.

It is our mission to provide the best experience possible for every student and family member we encounter at every step of the enrollment process. We have a very special team made up of caring, intentional, and innovative people who are accessible and who make a positive impact every day.

Our values represent the way we aim to serve and support students and families:

Integrity:

  • We will be accountable and honest.
  • We will create a safe environment for students, families, campus partners, and for each other in Enrollment Management.
  • We will be thoughtful and transparent in our communication.

Care:

  • We are eager to help and have a heart for service.
  • We value inclusivity.

Intentionality:

  • We will work to solve problems and provide accurate information and anticipate needs.
  • We will meet deadlines consistently and respond in a timely manner.

Innovation:

  • We have a natural curiosity to learn and will continually pursue personal and professional growth.
  • We will maintain a focus on ensuring that we are aware of national best practices and continually evaluate whether there are ways to make positive change.
  • We will model efficiency.

The OU family is special and dynamic. It is filled with great people and it is an excellent educational environment for students. We are grateful to be central to the student experience and it is a privilege to be a part of students’ educational journey. Live on, University!
