In the midst of an enrollment crisis, SIU-C Chancellor Carlo Montemagno filled a position that had been vacant for years.
Jennifer DeHaemers will be the associate chancellor for enrollment at SIU-C.
She says the University needs to focus on pulling students from all over-not just the metro regions.
"We need to make every effort we can in every market. Whether it's towns that are within a 50 mile radius here or 150 or 500 miles from here."
DeHaemers says it will not be an overnight process to climb out of the troubles that face SIU-C currently.
