Eric LaMott

Provost & Chief Operating Officer

Concordia University, St. Paul

Dr. LaMott is Provost and Chief Operating Officer at Concordia, leading the strategic planning team, the budget task force, the enrollment management leadership team, and the campus master plan. He leads the Finance and Operations subcommittee for the Board of Regents and reports on all matters of the university budget, the strategic plan’s implementation, and curriculum and staffing initiatives. Transformational changes Dr. LaMott has steered include Concordia’s initiatives to Launch CSP Global with a goal of growing the university by 50% to 10,000.Dr. LaMott presents and consults regionally and nationally on many topics, including enrollment management, online education, fiscal management, and higher education pricing models. The work Dr. LaMott and his team conducted on various pricing models led Concordia to announce it would step back the cost of tuition for all students by $10,000 in 2013-14. His team was responsible for coining the term “tuition reset” for this move, which became an implementation model used successfully by Concordia as well as other U.S. universities. At Concordia, it led to a 33% growth in inquiries and applications and brought two years of record-breaking enrollment numbers even as surrounding peer institutions.
