Shawana Singletary has been named Adelphi University's new assistant vice president and chief enrollment officer. In this role, she is responsible for driving international, undergraduate and graduate admissions and enrollment.
“I am so grateful that my experiences in education have led me to Adelphi University,” said Singletary. “The campus is beautiful and everyone I’ve met has been extremely warm and welcoming. I can see why Adelphi has been the choice for its students.”
Most recently serving as director of admissions and recruitment at Metropolitan College of New York, Singletary brings to Adelphi 14 years of experience as a leader in admissions, financial aid and marketing in higher education. She has also served in admissions roles at the Manhattan School of Computer Technology, Berkeley College and DeVry College of New York.
“We are thrilled to welcome Shawana to the Adelphi enrollment team,” said Kristen Capezza, MBA ’12, vice president of enrollment management and University communications. “She brings with her a great enthusiasm for serving our students and creating an accessible and streamlined admissions process for all. We’re excited to continue our enrollment growth with Shawana’s leadership.”
At Metropolitan College of New York, Shawana successfully implemented innovative plans for the future success of the college by restructuring its admissions team and utilizing technology, strategic enrollment planning techniques and data analysis — all during the challenge of the COVID-19 pandemic.
In 2015, Singletary earned her Master of Business Administration from DeVry University’s Keller Graduate School of Management and, in 2008, a Bachelor of Arts in psychology from the City University of New York’s Medgar Evers College.
In her new role as assistant vice president and chief enrollment officer, Singletary says she “plans to grow enrollment while maintaining the core values of the college that led me here—academic excellence, diversity, innovation, collaboration, respect, truth and integrity—as these are the values I have carried with me throughout my career.”
