The New Era for Enrollment Management: Recruitment, Remediation, and Retention in the 21st Century. A Directory of Promising Practices, Notable and Significant Programs for Higher Education.
Adam, Anthony J., Ed.
This directory contains case studies which examine some of the more innovative responses to the problems presented by technological change, a more diverse and expanding student population, and increased access to institutions of higher education. While most of the programs are based at specific higher education institutions in the United States, there are entries for programs at Canadian universities and statewide initiatives. Each one-page entry has an outline of the program followed by a paragraph with contact information. Entries are organized under three headings: (1) recruitment programs, covering 43 listings, each from a different institution; at least one example is totally on-line, and another is a distance education program aimed at graduate students seeking teacher certification in deaf education; (2) remediation programs, with 50 listings, including on-line and Web-based examples; (3) retention programs, with 56 listings, many aimed at first-year students, with at least one Web site program, as well as a program serving the needs of the lesbian and gay population. (Contains 27 references.) (RH)
