Using SEM to Thrive in a Down Economy

With higher education facing unprecedented financial challenges, the need for innovative approaches to institutional operations has never been greater. Strategic enrollment management offers a unique conceptual framework for enabling institutions not just to survive — but to thrive — in the current environment.

By promoting clarity of institutional mission from the perspective of student access and success, SEM provides a paradigm for cutting through the clutter of competing priorities to focus on mission-critical. The resulting alignment of institutional mission, enrollment goals, targeted investments, and budget outcomes enables planning that is more strategic, in turn leading to improved outcomes for the institution as a whole, as well as individual departments.
