Admissions Directors

The Directors of Admission at the State Universities of Michigan (DASUM) are the executives responsible for selecting each fall’s entering cohort of students. Admissions Directors are present as high school preview nights in high schools, are on the road to meet students, and are working to help increase Michigan’s college-going rate. Meetings of DASUM are a place for peer education and sharing information among respected competitors. While DASUM is a committee of MASU, it has met independently for many years as well.

As with all MASU committees, during their convenings, members of DASUM provide insight on the implications of current state and federal policy issues and fiscal dynamics affecting Michigan’s public universities, Traditional and emerging higher education topics and trends are considered from the perspective of admissions directors, with particular attention paid to such issues as high school curricula and partnerships, demographic change, workforce projections, and college price and affordability.
