Berkeley College President Dario A. Cortes, PhD, is proud to announce the appointment of Herbert Cohen, EdD, as Senior Vice President for Enrollment Management and Career Services. In this role, Dr. Cohen will provide leadership and direction to campus strategic enrollment management efforts in both recruitment and retention of students, as well as to the Financial Aid and Career Services departments. He also will oversee the newly created Office of Military and Veterans Affairs.
“Dr. Cohen has proven he is a dynamic advocate for students in every aspect of their college experience,” said Dr. Cortes. “We are excited that he will bring this high level of commitment and dedication to Berkeley College.”
