The Office of Admissions includes over 50 staff who are engaged in the work of recruitment and outreach to prospective undergraduates and make admission decisions on all applicants for freshman, transfer, and post-baccalaureate undergraduate admission. Admissions is a unit of the Division of Student Services & Enrollment Management and works closely with other units on campus, including Scholarships/Financial Aid and Orientation, among others.
Within Admissions, the recruitment & outreach team that includes this position is a dynamic, committed group of professionals with diverse backgrounds and perspectives who are often the first UO representatives that thousands of students per year will meet in the process of choosing whether to apply to, and ultimately attend, the University of Oregon. Their care for students extends beyond the desire to have students choose Oregon, and connects to our outreach mission, making sure that students and their families feel empowered about the college preparation, search, and choice process, regardless of where they enroll. In light of the university’s growing presence around the US and beyond, we are looking to add a dynamic and thoughtful person to our team in order to accomplish our goals.
Reporting to the Associate Director for International Recruitment, this position develops and coordinates international student recruitment for designated international territories, as well as contributing to the strategic and day-to-day planning for recruitment and new student enrollment.

This position represents the University of Oregon by traveling internationally and domestically to recruit international students, as well as employing a variety of best practices and innovative strategies to reach students, families, and counselors with virtual/"armchair" recruitment and outreach.
This position requires an extensive amount of travel, involving irregular hours, and often including locations that are not serviced by public transportation. This position will require a valid driver’s license and the ability to obtain UO Driver Certification.
