Strategic Enrollment Management

We've tried to implement enrollment management strategies, but our enrollments are flat or even down.
If this sounds familiar, you are not alone. Many of our colleges are facing the same challenges and wondering how to improve enrollment and student success indicators. With a solid Strategic Enrollment Management (SEM) approach in place colleges have a better way in which to address the many enrollment and student success challenges. SEM is a holistic approach that enables the fulfillment of an institution’s mission. Focused on strategically meeting the needs of our community and our students, SEM promotes student success, optimizes enrollment, and ensures the fiscal viability of our colleges.
