SEM Planning

Enrollment plays a central role in supporting the overall strategic vision, mission and health of any institution. Increasingly, colleges and universities understand the importance of aligning enrollment targets with institutional goals. Achieving this alignment requires a strategic long-term plan for managing and optimizing enrollment not just for today, but for the future of your institution.

Steps to SEM Planning

  • Identify the top goals for recruitment and retention needed to achieve enrollment outcomes
  • Establish a governance system to review each completed step and ensure alignment with your institutional vision and mission
  • Develop a process for executing each step of the plan in a timely, efficient manner

Learn how others are achieving their goals and more at the SEM Conference.
