Director of Enrollment Management
School of the Environment
Greetings from South Georgia!
My name is Wendi Hicks and I serve as the Director of Enrollment Management within the Office of Admissions and Financial Aid at the Yale School of the Environment (YSE). I hail from Moultrie, Georgia and came to YSE from Emory University down in Atlanta, GA. I am currently working on my dissertation to earn a Doctorate in Public Administration, with a dual concentration in Higher Education Leadership and Public Policy. I bring 10 years of higher education experience in recruitment, admissions, systems and processes. As an African American woman who grew up in rural South Georgia, the daughter of two educators, and having written two children’s books alongside my mother, I definitely possess a true passion for education and the academic empowerment of students across all backgrounds. I am dedicated to recruiting individuals with multi-faceted perspectives and experiences to aid in the cultivation of a diverse, equitable, and inclusive community and look forward to connecting and collaborating with prospective students to provide insight and answers to inquiries regarding writing graduate school essays and navigating the graduate school application process.
