Welcome to the Interim Campaign for Student Success
The Interim Campaign for Student Success will focus on the coordination and promotion of the recruitment and retention activities of the Office of Enrollment Management and University Colleges developed to achieve the goals established for fall 2007. In the course of the 2006-07 year, the work of the Interim Campaign will be integrated into that of the University Student Success Committee.
The goals for fall 2007
- Retain 85% of the fall 2006 full-time freshmen
- Increase the yield rate for admitted freshmen to 40% and the yield rate for admitted transfer students to 67%, which constitutes a 5% increase in the yield rate for both groups
- Increase the number of new graduate students
- Increase the number of new international students
- Halt the enrollment decline in Extended University Programs
- Achieve an overall enrollment increase of 500 students over fall 2006
The Interim Campaign will be led by a coordinator with the support of a university representative team. Through the combined efforts of the Office of Enrollment Management and the colleges, the Interim Campaign will
- Facilitate and recommend strategies and activities to increase enrollments and admissions in select programs which have the capacity for additional students or in programs needing minimal resources to increase enrollments
- Assist the Admissions Coordinating Council, as needed, to enhance the university and college recruitment effort
- Recommend new-enrollment targets for each college in conjunction with the Office of Enrollment Management
- Develop and submit a monthly report on the major enrollment activities of all units, including an assessment of progress toward achieving the established campaign goals
- Facilitate the “retentionNow” initiative by
- Collecting and distributing the retention strategies and activities of each of the academic units in order to share insights and achieve efficiencies where appropriate
- Assist units, as needed, with the development and implementation of assessment plans for the retention strategies implemented
- Advise units, as needed, regarding selection and implementation of retention strategies
- Work with the Vice Provost for Academic Operations to assess the fall mid-term grading project
- Select and recommend for funding those retention efforts that are judged to be most immediate, significant, and promising
- Develop and submit a monthly report on the major retention activities of all units, including an assessment of progress toward achieving the established campaign goals
- Develop and implement a plan for the assessment of the work completed as part of the Interim Campaign.
In April 2007, the Interim Campaign team will develop and submit the outcomes report to the Provost and President.
