Facing an economic downturn and fierce competition for undergraduate enrollments, colleges and universities are looking for a silver lining: countercyclical enrollments. This tendency for enrollments to increase as the economy declines is well documented. But leadership at four-year institutions shouldn’t get their hopes up. Not every institution benefits equally from these additional students. The Great Recession had a far smaller impact on baccalaureate and graduate enrollments than it did on community colleges and vocational programs.



Enrollment declines are forcing community colleges to reevaluate their current enrollment strategies. Many community college leaders have turned to strategic enrollment management (SEM) as the solution. This webconference focuses on the three key imperatives to crafting an effective SEM plan and showcases EAB’s new SEM plan framework. It is best suited for VP’s of enrollment management, marketing, and student success and anyone leading SEM efforts on campus.
