Dr. John Head has worked in higher education for 28 years, serving both public and private institutions in Georgia and Tennessee. He currently serves as the Associate Vice President for Enrollment Management at the University of West Georgia.
In his current position, he is responsible for nine units in the division of Student Affairs and Enrollment Management: Undergraduate Admissions, Financial Aid, Registrar, Advising Center, International Student Admissions and Programs, Center for Academic Success, Enrollment Services Center, Office of New Student Programs, and the Center for Adult Learners and Veterans.
John believes that effective enrollment management begins with strategic planning, and that effective strategic plans are the ones where every campus constituency has the ability to offer input. When campus partners have input in the planning, they tend to be invested in helping the plan be successful. Throughout his career, John has used this collaborative approach with campus partners at each institution to help them achieve significant enrollment growth.
John earned the Doctor of Education degree with an emphasis in Higher Education Administration from the University of Tennessee. He also earned a Masters of Mass Communication degree from the University of Georgia, and the Bachelor of Arts degree in Mass Communications from Shorter College in Rome, GA.
