Shabazz was selected by UB President Kurt L. Schmoke for the role, following a national search led by a University committee and a series of interviews with the UB community. Shabazz, who currently serves as assistant vice chancellor for enrollment management and director of admissions at the University of Hawai’i Manoa, will start at UB on Oct. 12.
Shabazz brings more than 25 years of experience in higher education, having served in a variety of admission- and enrollment-related roles in public and private institutions in Pennsylvania, Virginia, Georgia, North Carolina and Hawai’i. Beginning in 2014, she served in the assistant vice chancellor position at the University of Hawai’i Manoa, where she instituted a holistic enrollment-management approach in support of the institution’s capabilities, thus attracting more new students and increasing its overall rate of retention.
Prior to her time in Hawai’i, Shabazz served in a variety of leadership positions at Fayetteville State University beginning in 2005, including associate vice chancellor for enrollment management as well as interim positions as registrar, director of admissions and director of financial aid. At that campus, Shabazz opened a center to serve the education needs of military veterans.
Shabazz earned a master’s degree in social service from Bryn Mawr College in 1985, and a B.A. from Villanova University in 1981. She holds memberships in a number of professional education associations, including ACT Hawai’i Council, the American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers and its Admissions Policies and Practices Committee, ACT Southwest Region, the College Board, and the National Association of College Admission Counselors
