The University of Iowa will implement a new administrative position to advance recruitment practices and enrollment at the university.

Brent Gage will start Dec. 15 as the new vice president for Enrollment Management at the UI. Gage comes from the University of Alabama-Birmingham, where he served as the associate provost for enrollment management for five years.

While working in Alabama, Gage increased freshman enrollment at the school by 39 percent. He also increased the first-year class’ average ACT score to 25.

In addition to overseeing the UI Admissions Office, he will also oversee the Financial Aid Office.

Gage’s contract is for five years, with an option to renew, and his starting salary is $220,000.
