In partnership with this group of staff and faculty, the Director of International Recruitment will work to maintain the strong population that joins Lakeland from abroad every year, as well as look to develop new markets in geographic areas that are otherwise underrepresented currently on campus.
A Bachelor's degree is required, a Master's preferred, along with direct experience in higher education or related field.
