The division has the responsibility of distributing financial aid and scholarships in excess of $95 million annually. Weber State University invites applications and nominations for the position of Associate Provost of Enrollment Management and Student Success. The university seeks a creative, innovative, student success-focused leader who is committed to the open-access mission of the university.
