Important Update about Enrollment Management (Updated)

Hello Campus Community, 

I am writing to you with an important update about enrollment at the College. On January 17-18, two consultants from an enrollment management firm called Ruffalo Noel Levitz (RNL) will visit our campus to complete a full analysis of our student services/enrollment-centered business processes with folks within different departments, including the admissions, advising, athletics, marketing, outreach & recruitment, and special student populations teams, as well as with students, deans, faculty representatives, and college leadership.  

Following their visit, the two consultants will write and share a report that senior college leadership will leverage in making key decisions as part of our Strategic Enrollment Management (SEM) efforts. We will highlight their findings with you all in the months to come.  

As a reminder, SEM defines a coordinated, campus-wide plan that guides how a college identifies, recruits, enrolls, retains, and graduates students with a strong focus on student success and alignment with the college’s overall mission & goals and its financial stability. For example, a college might focus on targeted marketing efforts within different student communities and/or change parts of its admissions process to reduce bureaucratic barriers to students.  

As our community continues the process of healing and rebuilding, college leadership is committed to reducing barriers and challenges to students, creating more accessible, equitable, and inclusive business processes, and better supporting a diversity of students from all backgrounds, particularly those from underserved and unrepresented communities. Our goal is to strengthen enrollment and dynamically nurture the success of our students from application to graduation. 

Each of you has devoted much time and energy to supporting our students amid many transitions and challenges over the last few years. We appreciate you and look forward to collaborating with the College in the work ahead.
