David Spivey, a member of the enrollment management team at Missouri S&T since 2021, will become vice provost of enrollment management effective Tuesday, Nov. 1.
Spivey was selected following a national search. He joined S&T in 2021 as director of graduate and international admissions and became interim vice provost for enrollment management in August 2022. He succeeds Shobi Sivadasan, who became vice president for enrollment management at Saint Mary’s College of California Sept. 1.
“We’re very pleased that David has accepted this position,” says Dr. Colin Potts, provost and executive vice chancellor for academic affairs at Missouri S&T. “In his very short tenure as interim vice provost, he has demonstrated strong leadership abilities and an engaged, collaborative approach to the multi-faceted role of enrollment management. I look forward to working closely with David as we explore new opportunities to make S&T a destination of choice for students in Missouri and beyond.”
“Creating opportunities for students and families to connect meaningfully with S&T is at the heart of what we do,” Spivey says. “We make a difference every day for each student whose educational and professional goals become a reality with S&T. I look forward to working with enrollment management and the campus community to help students reach those goals.”
Prior to joining S&T, Spivey served as assistant vice president for graduate enrollment at Chatham University in Pennsylvania. Before joining Chatham, he spent 10 years at Northern Arizona University, where he started as a career and academic advisor before becoming assistant director in the graduate college and later the director of the graduate college. He holds bachelor’s and master’s degrees in Spanish from Georgia State University and Northern Illinois University, respectively.
As vice provost of enrollment management, Spivey oversees undergraduate admissions, graduate and international admissions, international enrollment, student financial assistance, the registrar’s office, enrollment marketing, and new student programs.
“I am grateful to the search committee, led by Dr. Kate Drowne, for their dedication to reviewing dozens of candidates for this position and finding the right leader for this important role,” Potts says. Drowne is a professor of English and technical communication and special assistant to the provost at S&T.
