Seattle University suddenly removed its dean of admissions, Michael McKeon, last month, following an off year in the enrollment of freshmen, The Seattle Times reported. While McKeon and senior administrators are not talking about his departure, shifts in admissions strategy are prompting discussion on the campus, where some fear that McKeon's emphasis on attracting minority and low-income students will be replaced by one on attracting more students who can pay. Seattle enrolled 747 freshmen this year, missing the university's target by 10 percent. Meanwhile Gonzaga University, also a Jesuit university in Washington States, is seeing enrollment increases.
