Enrollment Management: An Integrated Approach.
Enrollment management is discussed with focus on the expanding role of admissions professions and their increasing impact on institutional policymaking. Enrollment management influences the size, shape, and characteristics of a student body by directing student marketing and recruitment as well as pricing and financial aid. Attention is also directed to reasons why enrollment managers need to exert a strong influence on academic and career advising, academic assistance programs, institutional research, orientation, retention programs, and student services. Chapters cover the following topics: the demand for higher education, college choice, the effects of pricing and financial aid on attendance, recruiting high school graduates, retaining students, current research on the impact of college on students' cognitive and noncognitive growth, the impact of different kinds of colleges, the outcomes of higher education, and the future of enrollment management. The following educational outcomes are considered: the significance of higher education over a lifetime, economic and noneconomic benefits of higher education, and consumptive benefits. One chapter was contributed by Terry E. Williams: "Recruiting Graduates: Understanding Student-Institution Fit." A bibliography is included. (SW)
