Latting of Undergrad Admissions tapped for position at Emory

John F. Latting, who has headed Undergraduate Admissions at Homewood since 2001, has been appointed assistant vice provost for undergraduate enrollment and dean of admission at Emory University.

Latting will move into his new role over the next few months. At Emory, he will be responsible for recruiting freshman classes for the undergraduate schools on the university’s Atlanta campus. He also will advise university officials on enrollment issues and lead the coordination of undergraduate admissions and financial aid.

Latting began his time at Johns Hopkins as director and in 2007 became dean of Undergraduate Admissions. He is credited with more than doubling freshman applications, shaping increasingly strong entering classes and building an effective and innovative staff.

“We will miss John—not only as a valued contributor to Johns Hopkins’ many successes in the past decade but also as a colleague and, for so many of us, as a friend,” said Sarah B. Steinberg, vice provost for student affairs.

William T. Conley, dean of Enrollment and Academic Services, will temporarily take on the additional role of interim dean of Undergraduate Admissions.
