Kevin MacLennan, a Colorado native, alumnus and longtime admissions leader at CU Boulder, has been named the campus’s associate vice chancellor of enrollment management.

MacLennan succeeds fellow alum Gwen Pomper, who retired in May 2020 after 31 years of service to CU Boulder. He will lead the campus’s Enrollment Management division, which encompasses admissions, financial aid and the bursar’s office.

“My goal is to continue to work collaboratively with all campus units to develop a shared, campuswide, multiyear strategic enrollment strategy,” MacLennan said. “CU Boulder’s ability to attract, retain and graduate an academically talented, diverse and inclusive student body requires that we all work together by focusing on student success.”

MacLennan’s eye to the future made him an ideal candidate, said COO Patrick O’Rourke.

“Meeting our strategic priorities––from research to diversity, equity and inclusion––starts with enrollment management,” O’Rourke said. “Kevin’s strategic vision and institutional knowledge will set up CU Boulder for many years of future success.”
