About the Episode

The what's what...

On this week’s episode of The Enrollify Podcast, we feature the first episode in Enrollify’s mini series on “My Career in Higher Education.” Janice Cheng-McConnell is the Assistant Director of Graduate Enrollment Communications at Syracuse University. 

Janice started working in higher ed as a fry cook in the dining hall of her alma mater, Binghamton University. Since then, she has worked at state schools, community colleges, and larger private schools, and as such, has a diverse perspective on how different admissions and marketing teams function.  

In this conversation, Janice reflects on the most important advice she received from mentors along her professional journey, what makes a great leader, and what higher ed needs to “figure out” if it wants to reduce employee turnover.
