OSWEGO, NY (Jan. 14, 2022) – SUNY Oswego announced today that the appointment of Interim Executive Director of Enrollment Management Joel Wincowski is being extended through June 2023.

“SUNY Oswego has already benefited from Joel’s 20-year track record in growing student enrollment and implementing effective enrollment strategies,” said SUNY Oswego Officer-in-Charge Dr. Mary C. Toale. “He stepped in and immediately brought colleagues and offices together this fall to develop and implement a bold enrollment marketing campaign, which has resulted in broadened exposure for SUNY Oswego and a measurable increase in applications received over last year.  We are thrilled Joel will continue in this role and remain focused on Oswego‘s commitment to inclusive excellence.”
