Comings and Goings: Sara Nordhoff
Posted 11/15/2017 12:00PM


Sara Nordhoff, Director of Admission and Financial Aid, will become the Director of Enrollment Management in January 2018, overseeing an expanded and more strategic approach to enrollment at our school. Following a model now used by many colleges and universities, Sara and her team will integrate the traditional functions of admission and financial aid with communications, marketing, and institutional research. This integration of functions will allow Catlin Gabel to take a more holistic and strategic approach to the family experience through all stages of their relationship with the school.

Since her arrival in 2011, Sara and her team have positioned Catlin Gabel as a highly desirable, diverse, and selective educational option in the Portland region. This new integrated structure will sustain demand and enrollment and strengthen the school's ability to craft a student community that reflects Catlin Gabel mission and values.
