I. Brief Description & Significant Changes in Plans (if any):

This Strategic Enrollment Plan (SEP) concentrates on three main goals:

  • Develop a comprehensive recruitment plan
  • Develop a comprehensive retention plan
  • Improve the quality of academic programs and student services to enhance student success

Each goal has descriptions designed to create a shared vision and common success measure. While the goals are broad, initiatives are identified to guide NSU toward reaching each goal outlined. Each initiative has outcomes, key players responsible for the completion of the initiative, a timeline, and the status of each initiative (which is to be updated on a regular basis). The Student Success Team will serve as the governing body for advancement of SEP. The Strategic Enrollment Plan 2012-15 (SEP) is in final approval phase. All university constituency groups reviewed and made recommendations to the document. The SEP was submitted to the President’s Cabinet for review. Once the approval is received from the President’s Cabinet, the next action is to authorize responsibilities by each goal’s initiatives and develop Key Performance Indicators (KPI’s) related to outcomes.

II. Team Members:

The Student Success Team will serve as the governing group charged with advancing the SEP. Laura Boren and Jerrett Phillips are the co-chairs.

III. Major milestones/actions over the last 3-6 months:

In the months from January through March, the SST worked on recommended revisions and editing the document for final draft. The aspirations, goals (with timelines), and data charts were approved for submission to the President’s Cabinet on April 5 , 2012.

IV. Planned major milestones or actions over the next 6 months:

The University adoption of the Strategic Enrollment Plan and first steps of implementation will be the next major milestones within the next 6 months. The Student Success Team will resume upon adoption of the Strategic Enrollment Plan. Additional actions that are in alignment with the Strategic Enrollment Plan and are planned for the next six months are:

  • Implementation of Student Academic Success Center (Title III grant)
  • Examination of reallocating pre-existing resources toward a professional advisement center.
  • Evaluate student engagement tools: Map-Works, SmarThinking, and Strengths Finder.

V. Current Funding Sources, Unfunded needs:

Future funding needs are contingent on the final plan.
