Dr. Carmen Panlilio is the Vice Chancellor for Enrollment Management and Student Affairs at Purdue University Northwest.
The Division of Enrollment Management and Student Affairs is committed helping Purdue Northwest students on both campus locations become the leaders and great thinkers of the future.
The offices under Enrollment Management and Student Affairs include Undergraduate Admissions, Financial Aid and Scholarships, Registrar’s Office, Testing and New Student Orientation, Reporting and Operational Improvement, Housing and Residential Education, Office of the Dean of Students, Counseling Center, Disability Access Center, Office of Veteran Support, Career Center, Campus Life, Student Activities, Leadership and Conduct, Upward Bound, TRIO, the Educational Opportunity Program Office, and 21st Century Scholars and the Office of the McNair Post-Baccalaureate Achievement Program.
Working with the academic and administrative offices, the division’s goal is to enrich the lives of PNW students and make it easier for them to meet their personal, educational and professional goals, and to contribute and influence their communities — locally, regionally and globally.
Since arriving in 2013, she implemented strategies and processes to overturn declining enrollment and improve student recruitment and admissions processes. Full-time freshman enrollment also had increased for three consecutive years. She has led the division in creating a more student-success and student-centered environment.
