FARMINGTON — A Norway man and School Administrative District 17 director has been named interim vice president for enrollment at the University of Maine at Farmington campus.

Jared J. Cash was named to the position by UMF President Kathryn A. Foster.

Cash will direct the university’s strategic enrollment activities, providing oversight and leadership to all enrollment functions, including admissions, financial aid and marketing and communications. In addition to directing and managing the Office of Admissions, he will work closely with colleagues across the campus and in the community to help achieve the enrollment, retention and graduation goals of the university.

Cash comes to UMF from the Sen. George J. Mitchell Scholarship Research Institute, where he served as scholarship director for four years. His responsibilities there included managing the applicant review and selection process and growing the institute’s programs that foster student academic, personal and professional growth.

Prior to his UMF appointment, Cash served on UMF’s Board of Visitors, an advisory body of community and regional leaders who provide counsel to the university and implement regional partnerships.

A longtime advocate for helping Maine students have fair and equitable access to a quality education from their first school years through college, Cash recently chaired an 18-month-long strategic plan process with the Oxford Hills School District, which included eight towns and 10 schools. The collaboration worked to align school district educational goals and actions with those of families and the community to help provide area K-12 students with the best educational preparation possible.

Preceding his work at the Mitchell Institute, Cash served in the Admission Office at Bates College beginning in 2004. While he was there, he was involved with all aspects of the admission process, serving ultimately as the senior associate dean of admissions and director of operations.

Cash received his undergraduate degrees from Bates College and is completing his master’s degree in education from Northeastern University.
