Enrollment Management Council

December 3, 2015

Present: Belinda Alvarado, Jason Carpenter, Bob Decker, Julie Dewan, Jen DeWeerth (chair), Rich Haubert, Dan Ianno, Lew Kahler, Bill McDonald, Jake Mihevc
Excused: Matt Fikes
1. Charter Contact/Cabinet Feedback
Jen received an update from Steph Reynolds following her report to cabinet. Cabinet appreciated the attention to regular communication with the campus community/wiki and the enrollment plan tracking approach. If we send out an EMC email about twice per semester with the wiki link, it would be good to also include an EMC related update/wiki link in the President’s monthly update. There was extensive discussion about the pros and cons of posting frequent enrollment updates (such as those that come from IR on a daily or weekly basis). Information and data—good, but will people have the context to frame and understand those?

2. Strategic Enrollment Plan/tracking table
There was discussion about how to spread out the responsibility to keep the table up to date in the wiki. Those who keep areas updated can provide action items and assessment items. As much as possible these will be links to documents on the wiki (ex: an ongoing list of Nano information day sessions and similar community presentations, press releases, international workgroup presentation) or website items (new curriculum program sheets, etc.) Bill and Bob will track and update the nano recommendation. Julie and Belinda will do the same for international recruitment.

3. Enrollment projection
Jake requested input on the categories for reporting and for the supplemental concepts. This project will move forward with the cohorts identified to date as a starting point.
Next meeting:
Final meeting of the semester is Thursday, Dec. 17th 10-11 am in PH391
