Introducing UTA’s new vice president for enrollment management

Troy Johnson

When you're in the middle of surging growth, you need someone to help manage the rise. That's Troy Johnson, UTA's new vice president for enrollment management.

"UTA is such a dynamic university, and the leadership team, deans, faculty, and students are such a great mix of talent and dedication," he says. "Who wouldn't want to be part of that?"

Dr. Johnson joined UTA in November after three years as associate vice president for enrollment management at Illinois State University. While there, he led the university to three years of record-breaking enrollment. Before that, he held posts at the University of North Texas, West Texas A&M University, and Texas Tech University. Johnson is the only three-time winner of the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board's Star Award for documented impact on student access and success in college, and he has a long track record of service in higher education, including roles in the U.S. Department of Education, the Texas Education Association, and more.

"Our students are graduating, getting jobs, enrolling in their dream graduate schools. That's the promise that UTA offers," he says. "These essential attributes are going to get even better over time, and we'll see our students climb to even greater heights."
