Loyola Marymount University (LMU) has named Anne Prisco as the new vice president of enrollment management.

She will join LMU’s Academic Affairs Division and assume her new position Tuesday, September 5th.

She will also work closely with the Graduate Studies Division on graduate student enrollment. Prisco brings more than 25 years of experience in the admissions and financial aid fields with a special focus on student recruitment and retention.

“As LMU strives to become a university of national distinction, it carries with it a desire to transcend organizational limitations and venture into the future,” Prisco said. “It is in keeping with the Jesuit and Marymount traditions that I enter LMU with the intention to make the student’s experience the best imaginable.”

Upon her arrival at LMU, Prisco said she plans to create a new and more comprehensive admissions and financial aid infrastructure.

She also plans to use best practices to improve upon LMU’s excellence in retention and graduation rates, and ensure that global education becomes one of the hallmarks of the university’s mission.

Prisco brings to LMU a unique combination of administrative skills and extensive academic research experience in higher education, LMU officials said.

“Anne Prisco’s extensive background in higher education administration and her grasp of enrollment management make her the ideal individual to lead LMU’s recruitment and retention efforts,” said Ernest Rose, LMU senior vice president and chief academic officer. “Her responsibilities will move LMU forward in recruiting, supporting and graduating the next generation of leaders. Individuals who are LMU-educated.”

Prior to coming to LMU, Prisco was the vice provost at Hunter College in New York, overseeing the study abroad and graduate program admissions efforts.

While there, she increased the total enrollment percentage of Hunter’s graduate program to 25 percent of the university’s total enrollment, a first in the history of Hunter College, LMU officials said.
