Joanne Landers, PhD, joined PSU as vice president for enrollment management and communications in August 2023. In this role, she provides vision, leadership, and management of the University’s goals, objectives, and strategies, and she leads the admissions and communications teams.
After a nationwide search, a committee comprising PSU faculty and staff selected Landers, who arrived from Saint Elizabeth University in New Jersey where she served for three years as the vice president of enrollment management.
At Saint Elizabeth University, Landers oversaw admissions and financial aid for all undergraduate students, co-chaired the enrollment and retention team, implemented a new customer relationship management (CRM) system, collaborated with the University’s director of communications and marketing to develop and execute digital and print recruitment campaigns, and was a member of the President’s Cabinet. Prior to Saint Elizabeth University, Landers served as vice president of enrollment services at Tennessee Wesleyan University, as director of admissions at Armstrong State University in Savannah, GA, and as the director of admissions at the Cleveland Institute of Art in Cleveland, OH.
Landers brings 20 years of academic, enrollment, and admissions experience and knowledge to PSU.
Landers holds a PhD in education with a specialization in leadership in higher education from Capella University, a master of arts in higher education administration from the University of Akron, and a bachelor of arts in political science from Miami University in Ohio. She also has an enrollment management certificate from Ruffalo Noel-Levitz.
