Strategic Enrollment Management




Strategic Enrollment Management (SEM) is a comprehensive process designed to:

  • develop strategies to maximize optimum student recruitment, enrollment, retention, persistence, graduation and alumni participation within the context of institutional mission
  • assist campus leadership in reaching critical decisions about faculty and staff employment planning, academic and student program development, construction and operational needs
  • aid in the coordination of services that insures a seamless process of recruitment, enrollment, retention, student services, graduation and alumni relations
  • incorporate integrated enrollment and financial planning

At UC, this process is facilitated through a carefully designed structure led by the SEM Policy Council and supported through a Management Team and Working groups for targeted enrollment enhancement/support initiatives. Membership is designed to achieve full campus participation in the evolution and implementation of UC’s enrollment goals. Listed below are SEM groups/committees with links to additional information regarding responsibilities and membership of each group.
