New Vice Chancellor for Enrollment Management

Dear friends,

I am pleased to announce that after conducting a national search with a diverse pool of candidates, I have appointed Todd Rinehart as DU’s next vice chancellor for Enrollment Management. Todd has served as interim vice chancellor since June.

Todd is a nationally recognized leader in enrollment management and is frequently called upon to speak on matters related to the ever-evolving challenges in the recruitment and enrollment of prospective students. Any university would be fortunate to tap him for such a position, but his deep love and knowledge of DU means we are doubly lucky to have him in this key role.

Todd has 26 years of higher education and student recruitment experience, as well as a strong commitment to ethical and inclusive admissions practices. He began working at DU in 1997 as an assistant men’s basketball coach and joined the Admission team in 2001. He held the positions of assistant and then associate vice chancellor for enrollment and director of admission from 2004-2017.

As director, Todd grew both the size and diversity of incoming classes while raising the academic profile of our undergraduate students. His dedication to bringing diverse students to DU directly advances our shared goals around Inclusive Excellence. As expressed in DU IMPACT 2025, opening our programs to high-achieving, motivated students who have a variety of viewpoints, identities and life experiences is paramount to our success.

I want to thank the search committee, who gave their time to help us evaluate many strong candidates, including two finalists, who held meetings with various campus constituents and delivered public presentations:

  • Lili Rodriguez, committee chair, vice chancellor, Campus Life and Inclusive Excellence
  • Peg Bradley-Doppes, vice chancellor, Athletics and Recreation
  • Brandon Buzbee, associate vice chancellor, Advancement
  • Brent Chrite, dean, Daniels College of Business
  • Iain Davis, assistant dean, Sturm College of Law
  • Sandy Johnson, associate dean, Korbel School of International Studies
  • Judy Kiyama, associate professor, Morgridge College of Education
  • Danny McIntosh, dean, Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences
  • Keith Miller, director, Honors Program and associate professor, chemistry and biochemistry
  • Renell Wynn, vice chancellor, Communications and Marketing

The firm Storbeck/Pimentel and Associates assisted in attracting a robust and diverse candidate pool.

Todd’s leadership will be critical to our future success in attracting an increasingly diverse and academically talented undergraduate student body, enhance our ability to effectively meet students’ financial aid needs and ensure DU’s success well into the future.

Please join me in congratulating Todd.

Sincerely,

Rebecca Chopp

Chancellor
