Enrollment Management for the 21st Century: Institutional Goals, Accountability, and Fiscal Responsibility. ASHE-ERIC Higher Education Report, Volume 26, Number 7.
This volume addresses trends and issues in enrollment management at institutions of higher education over the last thirty years. It reviews such state-related issues as access, accountability, and dwindling financial and political support; federal government aid and regulations; public perceptions of higher education; and demographic implications. Additionally, public university administrators throughout the country were surveyed and asked to identify key elements of their enrollment management programs; to diagram administrative structures; to explain which of four models committee, coordinator, matrix, or division most closely approximated the structure at their institution; to evaluate their enrollment management program and its longevity; to discuss ethical concerns; and to provide advice to newcomers. Summarizing this information, text chapters do the following: cover demographics; define the four models of enrollment management; examine links between enrollment management and other institutional programs; review earlier enrollment management studies; examine enrollment management practices at major public universities in all areas of the country; define appropriate structure and mission; list three general goals of enrollment management; examine the value and credibility of higher education; examine how to evaluate quality; note the role of faculty; provide advice to the novice; and examine some ethical dilemmas. An appendix presents the survey sent to administrators and an interview guide. (Contains approximately 110 references.) (CH)
