Henderson to head U-M-D enrollment management and student life

Henderson has long been a national leader in developing new models for universities to better recruit and retain students. Before joining the U of I in 2003, he was associate vice president for enrollment management at the University of Cincinnati from 1995-2003. He also served as director of enrollment management and admissions at Western Michigan University and director of admissions at Wichita State University.

He has been involved in national and regional professional associations, and served as president of the American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers in 1995-1996.

"Stanley Henderson is assuming an important portfolio of responsibilities at the University of Michigan-Dearborn, and I look forward to working with him to accomplish the goals we have for the campus," says U-M-Dearborn Chancellor Daniel Little. "The depth and breadth of his experience and expertise will be invaluable as we continue our efforts to increase enrollment while maintaining the quality of students."

U-M-Dearborn plans to increase enrollment by several thousand during the next decade. The campus has added significantly to its classrooms and laboratories in recent years, and construction is under way on a new science building. Ground soon will be broken for an expansion of the College of Engineering and Computer Science.

"While student recruitment and retention are important focuses of this position, I am also looking forward to working with our students and staff to enhance the vitality and diversity of student life on campus," Henderson says. "U-M-Dearborn already has very strong programs to engage students in the collegiate experience, and I'm anxious to get involved in doing whatever I can to make those programs even stronger."

Henderson earned his bachelor's degree in political science from Michigan State University in 1969 and a master's degree in government from Cornell University in 1971. He also completed doctoral course work at U of I.
