A little bit about me

Per Matt’s request, I thought I would give you guys a little background into who I am. I will tell you that I have probably been working in higher ed for the least amount of time (7 months) out of all the people involved in BlogHighEd, but I am extremely passionate about what I do and therefore always wanting and willing to learn about the ever changing field of Higher Education.

I am officially the Marketing/Recruitment Specialist for the Office of Enrollment Management for the University of Illinois at Springfield. I work for the smallest of the three U of I campuses, but still get all the benefits. This position was created last year for UIS graduate and co-creator of BlogHighEd, Brad J Ward, but he moved on to a position at Butler University in Indianapolis, IN. I spend my time researching trends in the current and potential student market for recruitment and retention. I also implement ideas that I present to the directors on our websites. I also have some web experience, but desperately want to learn more! I also do campus and event photography.

I look forward to learning with and from everyone who contributes here and I am very thankful that I was chosen for bhe. And here’s a better photo of me and my wonderful girlfriend.

Jordan and I

    Nice to know a little more about you Jeremy! Makes me wonder if I shouldn’t write a little post talking about myself…

    Most definitely. I know you through Matt and Brad, but don’t know you personally per se. I’d enjoy hearing about everyone who’s on bhe.

    Nice post, Jeremy. I’ll be interested in following your research on trends in recruiting and retention, especially with the declining high school pool.
    Kyle, definitely do a post about yourself.

    “Research” is always an ongoing process where information gets added and changed as I go along. It’s really nothing that others on bhe do as well, except maybe worded differently. I will be posting more about some trends that I find particularly interesting though.
