Jonathan Coleman will serve the University of Arkansas at Little Rock as the interim assistant vice chancellor for enrollment management.

Coleman replaces Kindle Holderby, who left to take an industry position. Coleman, who is the director of financial aid and scholarships, is serving in both roles while a national search is conducted.

“Jonathan’s leadership will help ensure continuous improvement in the university’s enrollment management functions,” said Dr. Cody Decker, vice chancellor for student affairs and chief data officer at UA Little Rock. “Jonathan has my gratitude for his willingness to serve in this important role.”

The assistant vice chancellor for enrollment management is responsible for the leadership and oversight of undergraduate recruitment and admissions at UA Little Rock, TRIO Educational Opportunity Center, Trojan Transition & Assistance Center, the Intensive English Language Program, Military Student Success, Testing Services, and the Office of International Student Services. This is Coleman’s second time serving in the interim assistant vice chancellor role.

Since joining UA Little Rock in 2019, Coleman and his team have made great improvements in the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships. These include decreasing the processing times for financial aid, developing a new transfer student scholarship for spring transfer students, piloting a tuition-match scholarship for UA – Pulaski Technical College, implementing a web-based chatbot for financial aid, and launching a new scholarship management system, Scholarship Universe.

“I am honored that the university trusts me to take on such a vital role and guide the Enrollment Management portfolio over the coming months,” Coleman said. “I believe this is an opportunity to build on the momentum that we have built over the last year and to continue the collaboration between departments across the entire campus.”

Prior to UA Little Rock, Coleman served as a financial aid manager for the Arkansas Division of Higher Education. He has a bachelor’s degree in history from the University of Arkansas.
