statement of the issues
Statement of the issues
  • Shift from management of enrollment FTE targets to management of tuition revenue budget. Changes management at the campus level.
  • Relatively flat overall retention rates over past 5 years despite investment of significant resources.
  • Significant and growing gap in retention and graduation rates between white and minority students.
  • Significant financial and resource needs in an environment of limited resources.
  • Enrollment Management: What is our targeted enrollment for 2010 to 2015? How do we get there?
  • Retention: How do we retain students?
  • Diversity: How do we enroll and retain a diverse student body?
  • Resource Needs: What are the financial and resource implications for students and the university?

  • Enrollment management data influence:
    • Instructor needs
    • Need for additional faculty positions
    • Auxiliary operations
    • Access-to-learning allocations
    • Number of laptop computers

Enrollment Management:Why it is important to ask the questions now

Change in how enrollment is managed at System level:

  • Institutions allowed to keep excess tuition revenue and can request additional budget authority
  • If a campus does not meet target, must return budget authority to System
enrollment management why it is important to ask the questions now7
Enrollment Management:Why it is important to ask the questions now
  • Changing national trends
  • New enrollment counting definition
  • Major UW-Stout initiatives
enrollment management current targets

enrollment management next steps
Enrollment Management:Next Steps

Small subcommittee to address these questions:

  • Revenue projections should influence enrollment target setting. How can this be accommodated?
  • What is a reasonable process by which to manage enrollment?
  • How do we manage when enrollment fluctuates?
  • How do we maintain a healthy enrollment given current environment?
  • How do we manage when there is internal competition?
  • What is a strategic plan for recruitment and resource needs?
enrollment management additional resources

Additional resources available on the retreat website:

  • Cancellation survey results
  • Total contacts

resource implications data
Resource Implications:Data
  • Customized Instruction – programs that have been approved to charge “differential tuition” or market rates.  Expensive delivery methods or have high market demand. To reach target markets like non-traditional students. 
  • Distance Ed – Not face to face delivery.  Physical separation between instructor and student and also have live or “real time” two-way interaction between instructor and student.
  • Differential Tuition – customized instruction and access to learning are differential tuition.  A tuition rate higher than the Regent approved rate.  Access to Learning is 5% of the resident tuition charged to undergrads and grads.

Table Discussion
  • Who should pay how much for what where?
