Andrew Ellison Assumes Role of Vice President for Enrollment

IRVING, Texas (Feb. 28, 2024) — Andrew Ellison, current director of the St. Ambrose Center for Catholic Liberal Education and Culture, will move to a new role as vice president for enrollment on March 1.

As VP, Ellison will be responsible for undergraduate and graduate admission, along with their respective enrollment teams.

“I am thrilled to be asked to serve the university in this new role,” Ellison commented. “UD’s Constantin College program, Gupta College of Business and Braniff Graduate School are true treasures in the landscape of higher education. There are legions of students and adult learners out there looking for what the University of Dallas offers, and we will find them and bring them here to benefit from what generations of UD degree-earners have experienced in the decades before them.”

Ellison joined UD last year after a long career devoted to primary and secondary liberal education. As a former teacher, high school headmaster and district administrator for the public charter network Great Hearts, Ellison will draw from ample experience in connecting young learners and their parents to the right college. He and his wife are also parents to two current UD students.

President Jonathan J. Sanford said Ellison’s many talents honed over years of experience as a successful teacher and school leader in classical education, combined with extensive executive experience overseeing growth in an emerging field, make him uniquely suited to promote the University of Dallas as the premier liberal arts university in the country. 

“Andrew Ellison is a powerful communicator and brand ambassador for the University of Dallas. With his deep understanding of and devotion to our mission, and his remarkable gifts in building relationships and leading, he is ideal for this new role,” Sanford said. “I am eager to see him creatively and concretely build on his past successes and his love for an education that orients students to wisdom, truth and virtue in a manner that enables us to achieve our targets for growth and excellence in our undergraduate and graduate programs.”
