Since 2005, USD has been engaged in the practice of enrollment management. In response to the strategic planning process, a committee was formed to set specific freshman enrollment goals that would help us achieve the Vision and Strategic Directions. This initial five year plan provided a roadmap for our marketing, recruitment, admissions and financial aid strategies from 2007 until 2012. Last year, as a result of structural changes in the Provost’s Office, a new position was created, the Assistant Vice President for Enrollment Management and a new enrollment plan was launched. This new EM unit has responsibility for both UG and GR admissions, financial aid, registrar and one stop center. The new plan, “Sustainable Success: Growth, Composition, and Budget” sets goals for the next three years, until 2015. In addition to new freshman goals, it focuses on transfer and graduate students, and also includes goals for improving student services across the enrollment unit as well as building connections across the campus.
Please join Stephen Pultz, the AVP for Enrollment for a discussion about USD’s enrollment planning evolution and what lies ahead as we face continuing marketplace and financial challenges in the years ahead.
