How to Develop, Write, and Implement a SEM Plan

Developing a healthy enrollment at your college or university is more than short-term recruitment and marketing tactics. It requires long-term, focused work that brings together faculty, administrators, staff and even students. This full-day workshop will teach you the core concepts of Strategic Enrollment Management (SEM), and walk you through the steps required to create campus-wide buy-in for the development and implementation of a SEM plan.
