Sr. Reviewer: Associate Vice President for Enrollment Management and Marketing
It is the philosophy of the Division of Academic Affairs that management of student enrollment is a significant responsibility of the faculty and administrators of an academic unit. Managing the number and quality of students in relation to available resources, both human and otherwise, is imperative to appropriate unit direction, attainment of long range goals, and the contribution of an academic unit to the image and visibility of the University. It is recognized that one factor that must be considered as part of this management is the student’s need for access to programs. It is also understood that direction for, and goals of, an academic unit should be supportive of the direction and goals of the division and the University.
When accepted plans and goals of an academic unit indicate the need to maintain or reduce student enrollment, utilization of student academic success (GPA) as one criterion for continuation in a curriculum is accepted and encouraged.
PROPOSAL FOR CHANGE
A proposal for establishing an enrollment management policy and procedure should include, but is not limited to the following:
relationship of the need to control the quality and number of students to the unit’s direction and goals;
criteria to be utilized in enrollment management;
procedures and/or methodologies to be utilized;
projected impact of policy to include impact on:
student majors of the unit proposing a change in a policy;
student minors of the unit proposing a change in policy;
student majors and/or minors of other academic units;
other academic units as related to academic processes: advising, control, etc.;
affected non-academic units: Computing Services, Admissions and Registrar; and
University processes: admission, registration, undergraduate and graduate catalogs, addendum, advising manual, etc.; and
consideration and approval through the school level.
