New Idaho State University Associate Provost for Enrollment Management Steven R. Neiheisel, Ph.D., brings to ISU more than 20 years of experience as dean and director of enrollment offices. As chief enrollment officer at other institutions, Neiheisel organized and led institutional efforts to establish enrollment-management goals and strategies.
In addition to his enrollment experiences, he has worked as student information system (SIS) coordinator for more than 15 years. In those roles he organized and chaired user-implementation groups in all stages of conversion from legacy systems to implementation of vendor-based SIS software. These experiences will be particularly valuable as Idaho State University embarks on a significant upgrade to its administrative technology.
“I am excited about joining the ISU family at this point in time. With the vision and direction of the executive leaders, there are a number of significant and forward-looking initiatives underway that can transform and advance the institution,” said Neiheisel, who joined the university this summer. “I look forward to working with the talents and expertise of the ISU faculty and staff and having the opportunity to help and contribute to a great future for ISU.”
He holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in mathematics/information systems from California State University, Dominguez Hills, as well as a Master of Arts and Ph.D. in higher education administration from Ohio State University. His graduate studies were among the first to explore the roles and impact of information systems on the administration of higher education.
His career began at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, and includes both private and public institutions as well as doctoral granting and master’s comprehensive institutions. Among his experiences are six years each at Eastern Washington University and University of Nevada Las, Vegas. His most recent campus position was as assistant dean of enrollment management at University of Wisconsin Green-Bay.
Neiheisel brings extensive experience in helping colleges and universities define and establish institutional goals and objectives, and in developing and overseeing enrollment management and technology implementation strategies to help those same colleges and universities achieve their vision.
