Following a search led by Koya consultants Liz Neumann and Beth Schaefer, Boston College has named alumnus Grant M. Gosselin as director of undergraduate admission. Gosselin succeeds John L. Mahoney, who was named dean of undergraduate admission and financial aid in March.
A nationally respected expert and proven leader in the field of undergraduate admission, Gosselin brings 21 years of experience to the position, including successful roles at Wheaton and Babson College, as well as at Boston College, where he had previously served as senior assistant director of undergraduate admission and associate director of marketing and international admission.
Most recently, he was the vice president of enrollment and dean of admission and student aid at Wheaton College in Norton, where he served as chief enrollment officer, overseeing and coordinating the efforts of the Admission, Financial Aid, Student Employment, and Student Accounts staffs. During his tenure, he set historic highs in applications and enrolled students, in international student recruitment, and is credited with creating Wheaton’s first Faculty Admission Advisory Group and Global Leadership Development Group. In addition, he implemented a new admission marketing strategy, as well as led the school’s successful effort to implement Slate as the enrollment CRM system for admission.
At Babson College, he served as the school’s first vice president of enrollment, overseeing admission recruitment and enrollment efforts for all programs within its undergraduate and graduate schools. Gosselin began his career in admission a month after graduating from BC with an entry-level position at Babson College. He is a member of multiple professional organizations, including NAFSA and AACRAO, and has served as an assembly delegate to the National Association for College Admissions Counseling.
Gosselin is a graduate of Boston College who received his undergraduate degree in finance from the Carroll School of Management in 1997, as well as a Master’s degree in higher education administration from the Lynch School of Education in 2002.
Gosselin and his wife, Martha, who also received two degrees from Boston College, are the parents of three daughters: Caroline, Emma, and Molly. The family lives in Hopedale, Mass., and are active in youth softball, basketball, and competitive dance.
