  13. Noel-Levitz 2010 e-expectations report • 46% claimed the current economic crisis caused them to reconsider the schools they would apply to or attend—an increase from 34 percent just last year.

  14. Noel-Levitz 2010 e-expectations report 1 in 4 students reported removing a school from their prospective list because of a bad experience on that school’s Web site. 92% would be disappointed with a school or remove it entirely from their lists if they didn’t find the information they needed on the school’s Web site.

  15. Challenge: changes in the college-bound student markets • The Midwest and Northeast will experience a 4% to 10% decline in high school graduates between 2009 – 2014 (WICHE) • The profile of college-bound students is rapidly becoming more ethnically diverse and female dominant (NCES, WICHE, ACT, College Board) • The number of students interested in engineering, computer science, and natural science degrees has declined to record lows (ACT, CIRP) • More full-time college freshmen are choosing to start at two-year colleges (IPED, MODHE) • More students are enrolling in more than one college at a time (National Student Clearinghouse) • Future student market growth will include more students requiring financial aid and loans to complete a degree (WICHE)

  29. A Need to Look at Things with a New Perspective

  30. A New Perspective – Difficult to Consider at Times

  31. What is SEM? • Strategic Enrollment Management (SEM) is defined as “a comprehensive process designed to help an institution achieve and maintain the optimum recruitment, retention, and graduation rates of students where ‘optimum’ is designed within the academic context of the institution. As such, SEM is an institution-wide process that embraces virtually every aspect of an institution’s function and culture.” Michael Dolence, AACRAO SEM 2001 • Research • Recruitment • Retention

  32. SEM Really Is…About Student Success Making the entire college/university active in, and responsible for recruiting, retaining and graduating students.

  33. Building blocks of SEM “Data is a core to building and sustaining a strategic enrollment management program.”

  34. The Purposes of SEM are Achieved by… • Establishing clear goalsfor the number and types of students needed to fulfill the institutional mission • Promoting students’ academic successby improving access, transition, persistence, and graduation • Promoting institutional success by enabling effective strategic and financial planning • Creating a data-rich environmentto inform decisions and evaluate strategies • Improving process, organizationalefficiencyand outcomes • Strengthening communications and marketing with internal and external stakeholders • Increasing collaboration among departments across campusto support the enrollment program

  35. Core enrollment principles • No Enrollment Effort is Successful without QUALITY Academic Programs • Recruitment and Retention is an On-going, Multi-year PROCESS with Strong Access to Research and DATA • About 80% of Enrollments come from REGIONAL student markets for BS/BA degrees • The Most Successful Recruitment Programs Clearly DIFFERENTIATE the Student Experience from Competitor’s Programs • The Most Successful Retention Programs Clearly Address Students’ Needs and Regularly ENGAGE Students in Academic and Non-Academic Programs

  36. Future Leadership in SEM

  37. 2009 Witt/Kieffer survey of college and university enrollment officers • Today’s chief enrollment officers are as involved in helping institutions stay mission-focused and financially strong as in providing strategic direction to their presidents and trustees. • At the same time, an aging generation of enrollment leaders — combined with limited leadership development and succession planning – could create a significant executive leadership void. 

  38. 2009 Witt/Kieffer survey of college and university enrollment officers • Enrollment officers at private institutions have more exposure to the president and board than those at public institutions • Mentoring and leadership development will take on greater urgency in the next 5-7 years as a generation begins to retire • Racial diversity among enrollment leaders remains rare, and is found most often at public institutions

  39. Today’s Enrollment Manager • “Successful senior enrollment managers have to operate simultaneously on multiple levels. They need to be up to date, even on the cutting edge of technology, marketing, recruitment, the latest campus practices to enhance student persistence, and financial aid practices.” SOURCE: THE ENROLLMENT MANAGEMENT REVIEW Volume 23, Issue 1 Fall, 2007, Editor: Don Hossler Associate Editors: Larry Hoezee and Dan Rogalski

  40. Hossler continued • “(Enrollment Managers) need to be able to guide and use research to inform institutional practices and strategies. Successful enrollment managers need to be good leaders, managers, and strategic thinkers. • They have to have a thorough understanding of the institutions where they work and a realistic assessment of the competitive position in which it resides and the niche within which it can realistically aspire to compete. Furthermore, to be effective, enrollment managers must also have a sense of how public, societal, and competitive forces are likely to move enrollment-related policies and practices in the future.” SOURCE: THE ENROLLMENT MANAGEMENT REVIEW Volume 23, Issue 1 Fall, 2007, Editor: Don Hossler Associate Editors: Larry Hoezee and Dan Rogalski

  41. What is included in a SEM Plan? Strategic Framework: Mission, Values, Vision Overview of Strategic Plan Goals & Institutional Capacity Environmental Scan: Market Trends & Competition Analysis Evaluation and Assessment of Position in Market Enrollment Goals, Objectives, & Assessment Criteria Marketing and Communication Plan Recruitment Plan Retention Plan Student Aid and Scholarship Funding Staff Development and Training Student/Customer Service Philosophy Process Improvements and Technology System Enhancements Internal Communication and Data Sharing Plan Campus wide Coordination of Enrollment Activities

  42. Traditional Core SEM Objectives Establishing Clear Enrollment Goals and Determining Capacity to Serve Promoting Student Success Determining, Achieving and Maintaining Optimum Enrollment Enabling the Delivery of Effective Academic Programs Generating Tuition Enabling Financial Planning Increasing Organizational Efficiency Improving Service Levels
