Enrollment Development Process

The Enrollment Development Planning and Assessment Committee (EDPAC) is the enrollment goal setting and planning group and it oversees matters related to enrollment development for the University. There are several leadership groups actively working on projects and tasks initiated by EDPAC. Through these groups, the action plans and the assessment work of enrollment development take place. The leadership groups report their progress to EDPAC on a regular basis. The groups are instrumental in setting the action items and performance indicators. Each group has members from EDPAC and members from the greater university community each determined by the work of the group and expected outcomes.  

Enrollment Planning Philosophy

“Strategic Enrollment Management (SEM) is a comprehensive process designed to help an institution achieve and maintain the optimum recruitment, retention and graduation rates of students where ‘optimum’ is defined within the academic context of the institution. As such SEM is an institution wide process that embraces virtually every aspect of an institution’s function and culture” (Black, 2001).
