Weeks, Ann A.
A report to the President of the State University of New York College At Old Westbury by the Enrollment Planning Committee is presented. Ten important recommendations include: convince the local guidance community of Old Westbury's direction and quality education; investigate a computerized student inquiry tracking system; initiate a computerized degree audit; assign each faculty member specific advisees, preferably in the same or a related discipline; and establish program by program articulation agreements and course by course equivalencies. Twelve sections are as follows: admissions (increasing enrollments, inquiry tracking system, feeder secondary schools and two-year colleges, program-specific recruitment, ethnic and cultural diversity, out-of-area recruitment, and communications with admissions office); public relations/publication; student retention; counseling/advising (earlier enrollment process, academic advising for transfer students, articulation agreements, FTC and lower division transfer students, and degree audit); faculty departments (enrollments by programs, summer school, graduate programs, and continuing education); alumni affairs; placement; housing/residential life; financial aid; institutional research; development; and orientation/registration systems. A copy of the charge to the enrollment planning committee and a bibliography that contains 14 references is appended. (SM)
