Admissions and Enrollment Management

Goals:

  • To develop an evidence-based enrollment management system
  • To integrate enrollment and admissions targets into programmatic recruitment plans
  • To streamline the admissions process

The Graduate School’s enrollment targets for new and continuing graduate students are defined within the SUNY New Paltz’s 2013-17 Enrollment Plan and approved by SUNY system administration. These enrollment targets are set by upper level administrators and are not currently reinforced by programmatic enrollment plans. As such, our current approach to recruitment and admissions is disconnected and unfocused.

Student Engagement and Support

Goals:

  • To create a community in which students feel they belong, are supported, valued, and respected.
  • To create support measures and structures that are in place at the stages of graduate work: applicant, new student, current student, and alumni
  • To differentiate student support to meet the needs of graduate student populations in hybrid-learning programs: online, summer, on-campus, full-time, part-time, etc.

Organizational Factors

Goal: To investigate different organizational structures for the Graduate School.

The organizational structure of the Graduate School is not flexible enough to deal with the changing market, cannot facilitate creativity and timeliness of program development or implementation.  In its current form, this School will continue to be deferential to the needs of academic units which have budgeting, recruiting and programming resources and as a result will continue to demonstrate enrollment reductions.
