Sarasota, FL – Blue Rock Search is proud to have partnered with Xavier University of Louisiana to place Cleveland A. “Tony” Jackson as the University’s new Assistant Vice President for Enrollment Management.

Xavier University of Louisiana

Xavier University of Louisiana is a private, Catholic HBCU in New Orleans, Louisiana. Founded in 1925 by Katharine Drexel, Xavier University is the nation’s only Catholic HBCU, the first Catholic university to be founded by a saint, and the first Catholic university to accept students regardless of gender. Today, it is a highly ranked university with nearly fifty unique majors, including nationally recognized programs in the sciences and pre-medical majors.


Jackson comes to Xavier University with over 12 years of higher education experience, primarily in enrollment management services. He previously served as the Executive Director of Enrollment Management at the University of South Carolina – Salkehatchie. There, he also represented his institution on the board of directors of the Colleton County Chamber of Commerce for three years. Most of all, Jackson is passionate about helping students receive the best services, while cultivating their paths to success.

Finding and placing talent with organizations that uplift underserved populations is particularly important to us, especially as a minority-owned search firm.
