Student Migration & the State University: Analysis, Strategies & Recommendations.
Murabito, William J.
This study sought to determine why significant numbers of potential students at the State University of New York (SUNY) were enrolling in higher education facilities out-of-state and in private institutions. The study's work group participants included system and campus experts in the areas of academics, policy analysis, institutional research, student access, enrollment management, marketing, transfer and articulation, student affairs/campus life, revenue and tuition issues, financial aid, university relations, and secondary guidance. Findings are reported under the following categories: the extent of student migration from New York State; characteristics of out-of-state institutions selected by New York students; why students bypass SUNY; expansion opportunities for SUNY; student perceptions of SUNY; results of a student opinion survey; and system administration support and campus enrollment management. Case studies at SUNY (Brockport) and SUNY (Potsdam) offer examples of a successful financial aid model and a successful enrollment turnaround effort. An appendix lists specific recommendations, both short term and longer term, concerning the relationship of enrollment management to marketing, academics, and transfer/articulation. A list of work group members is also appended. (DB)
