Strategic Enrollment Management (SEM) Resources


Goals of the 2018-19 Enrollment Management Committee

Establish Comprehensive Enrollment Goals – number, types of students, various modes of instructional delivery are needed to accomplish mission. Enrollment forecasting to determine campus wide needs for programs and course selection. Formal process to strengthen high school connections and collaborations in order to enhance dual enrollment, concurrent enrollment with an enhanced opportunity to predict, articulate and process these students’ needs. Better serve international student needs with continued outreach to enhance their student/college experience.

Promote Institutional Success – access, transition, persistence, employment reporting, graduation and completion metrics through effective data driven strategic and financial planning. Develop new program curriculum for regional/local and student needs. Promotion of students’ voices and our alumni who have successfully transitioned. Greater development of an alumni network. Utilization of best practices and transfer-ability of successful programs to other areas or new programs. Greater and more variable student life activities in order to strengthen college connectedness.

Strengthen Internal and External Communications – strategic marketing, business and community outreach, community partner outreach, high school/adult school/early college outreach, promotion of programs and services offered in order to drive or increase enrollment, demonstrating student success, establish a career pathway to assist students in understanding career opportunities. Greater incorporation of advisory board views as a part of the campus decision making processes.

Increase Campus Collaboration – among programs to accomplish mission, helping faculty, staff and administration incorporating student voices into institutional plans. Partnerships with instructional and student services collaborations that are efficient. Business process analysis that supports efficiency and equity for our students. Leveraging technology to increase participation and usability in order to incorporate greater and varied voices.
