Enrollment Management Revisited

Local Senates
Educational Policies Committee

The 1999 Academic Senate for California Community Colleges paper, The Role of Academic Senates in Enrollment Management, presented principles for effective faculty participation in developing policies and making decisions that affect course offerings. In 2007, an Academic Senate resolution called for an update to that paper, to provide senates with information that reflects various changes in the colleges and their operations since the earlier paper. This paper responds to that resolution by highlighting what has changed in the colleges in the last decade and providing guidance to local senates and faculty in general about issues and options when they participate in the development and implementation of enrollment management policies and procedures. This paper is not intended to replace the earlier paper, but rather to supplement it.
