New Vice President Position for Enrollment Approved at New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary

The creation of a new vice president position for enrollment was approved by the executive committee of New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary’s trustees in a June 4 meeting.

The vice president for enrollment, a position created to provide oversight for all departments essential for a healthy enrollment, will act as chief strategist and catalyst for enrollment-related matters for NOBTS and its Leavell College. A candidate for the position will be named at a later date.

Student services related to recruitment, admissions, advisement, success, retention and completion as well as financial aid and the registrar’s services will be included under the vice president for enrollment’s oversight.

In other action, the board approved the transition of the church history major in the Ph.D. program to a concentration within the theology major. The transition provides students the option of writing a dissertation in either theology or church history. Church history will continue to be offered as a minor and, if needed, can be revived later as a major.

Two other majors in the Ph.D. program were “suspended” — the missions major and the Great Commission studies major. These changes come in conjunction with an earlier transition and allow NOBTS to maintain missions as a minor at the doctoral level. The major can be revived later if needed.
