Rick

Rick DiFeliciantonio

Vice President for Enrollment

rdifeliciantonio@ursinus.edu
610-409-3200

Rick has been at Ursinus College since 1990 and in those years has overseen remarkable growth in Ursinus College student quality and enrollment. As Vice President for Enrollment Rick supervises the Office of Admission, the Office of Student Financial Services, the College Communications Office, and the Web Team.

A graduate of Swarthmore College, where he was a McCabe Scholar and baseball player, Rick began his career teaching English and writing at the University of Denver, Temple University, and The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania. He began his work in admissions at Swarthmore College and is the author of numerous op-eds and commentaries on higher education marketing and enrollment management. He holds a master’s degree in creative writing from the University of Denver.

“During my career the one constant in higher education management has been change. What has remained true for Ursinus—what has been true since 1869—is that all of us who represent the college continue to work to communicate the very special, personalized nature of the student to faculty connection at the heart of our academic program.”
