Colleges and universities are facing increasing pressures to adapt in a turbulent competitive environment. We can no longer assume that enrollment growth will balance the budget. Location, reputation, student experience and surrounding demography all influence which institutions will continue to grow, necessitating the development of a sustainable approach to combat pressing challenges. Strategic enrollment planning culminates with a finely tuned, data-informed, five-year strategic enrollment plan that addresses pressing challenges such as: Adapting recruitment and retention strategies to rapid market changes Responding to changing demographics and supporting diversity Aligning academic and co-curricular trends with institutional capacity Preparing graduates for changing demands of the modern economy and workforce Responding to increasing calls for accountability Managing student and campus revenue needs as costs outpace federal and state support for higher education Maximizing net tuition strategies To watch the webinar, go here.
