Interview with Joe F. Head
West, Kim
College and University, v83 n3 p28-32 2008
This article presents an interview with Joe F. Head, Dean of University Admissions and Enrollment Services at Kennesaw State University (KSU) in Georgia, who has more than 35 years of experience in admissions and enrollment services. After completing an M.Ed. in higher education at Georgia Southern University, Head immediately landed a position as Director of Admissions and Associate Registrar at Tift, a Baptist women's college. Previous to his full-time graduate studies, Head had served as an admissions counselor at Tift. While in graduate school, he held a full-time position in the registrar's office. After five years at Tift, Head took a position as Director of Recruitment at Georgia Southern; in 1982, he moved to KSU. He became the youngest president of GACRAO in his time. Head is a frequent contributor to journals as well as a frequent presenter at professional conferences. In the late 1990s, he chaired an AACRAO task force that resulted in the establishment of the GACRAO Institute for Strategic Enrollment Management, a state model for professional development. Head has a reputation for excellence and innovation, particularly in the areas of 24 x 7 interactive-transactional technology and enrollment management techniques. In this interview, he offers advice for new admission directors, and discusses the importance of strategic enrollment management.
