Part Three, Faculty, examines: faculty resource allocation, software approach to instruction, and faculty goals and activities. Part Four, College/University Community and Institutional Research, contains five papers dealing with areas such as grade inflation, the quality of student life, college attrition, and institutional research at a community college. Part Five, Admissions/Enrollment/Financial Aid, examines tools for marketing management and enrollment trends, factors affecting freshman applicants, and college choice. The final section, Managing Student Enrollment: The Boston College Story, examines information systems, admission processes, financial aid and student attrition as it applies to Boston College.
