Enrollment Management Plan for 2010–12

by Dr. Jolene Koester on October 20th, 2009 under Alert, Budget, Campus messages, Communications

At the President’s Convocation at the beginning of the fall semester, I noted that at my request the vice presidents were developing a three-year budget plan for 2009 through 2012. This plan will ensure that the University can maintain academic quality and excellence for what we project will remain a tight budget environment in the coming years.

An important component of this effort due to declining resources is to methodically continue reducing the University’s enrollment over the next two years while also maintaining a strong infrastructure if conditions and expectations change.

Under the leadership of Vice President for Student Affairs Terry Piper, an enrollment management plan for 2010–11 and 2011-12 has been submitted that meets these goals, which I have approved. I am pleased to share this plan with the campus community, which you will find linked at the Campus Budget News website and which can be downloaded directly from here as a PDF document.
