Student success is at the center of everything we do. As open-entry institutions, California Community Colleges serve a diverse student body with wide-ranging educational goals. The needs, interests, and size of that student body continuously change. You need to plan for and adapt your programs and services to meet these changing needs.
At the same time, the institution itself must survive and thrive. A college that is unable to anticipate and react to changes in enrollment or course demand cannot properly help students meet their goals. You have to maintain fiscal viability to ensure that you can support your community now and into the future.
Strategic Enrollment Management (SEM) is a holistic concept and a process that enables the fulfillment of an institution’s mission and its students’ educational goals. While grounded in the current operating environments, SEM includes a future-oriented vision and is adaptable to the changing environment.
SEM resources are in active development. Check back soon for additional resources and information.
