Nicholas Balk

Vice President of University Partnerships (Northeast)

Nick is a born-and-bred New Englander with nearly 15 years of enrollment management experience. As an enrollment planner, he has led successful student search & communication campaigns, utilizing CRMs such as Slate to power a robust prospective student funnel. He has tackled projects related to strategic planning, CRM and predictive model implementations, financial aid leveraging, and college accreditations. What drew Nick to higher education was a desire to help students find the right college match.

Nick most recently served as Director of Admissions at Albany College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences, overseeing all first-year, transfer, and professional student recruitment. He also has served in admissions and financial aid roles at MCPHS University and Boston University. An advocate for calculated risk-taking, Nick enjoys being a part of strategic change on college campuses.

A resident of the Boston area, Nick enjoys taking advantage of everything that New England has to offer, from swimming at beaches on the rugged Atlantic coast to hiking in the White Mountains, to exploring quaint town centers. Like most Bostonians, Nick is an avid sports fan, rooting for all Boston professional teams and especially for his beloved alma mater, Boston College.
