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. EDPAC manages the processes that allow GVSU to achieve optimum recruitment, retention and graduation rates through oversight of the following "on the ground" task groups. Through collaboration across campus make recommendations on activities that maximize the quality of the experience made available to students. 

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).
