The Enrollment Management Knowledge Community (KC) provides an opportunity for NASPA members to engage in discussions, access resources, and exchange information regarding enrollment management topics. The EMKC provides an opportunity for supporting leaders (VPs, AVPs, directors, faculty) that include enrollment responsibilities within their work to assist them in gaining access to additional resources and training. Members will share their common interests, knowledge, and innovative practices to help support each other, student success, and the NASPA mission.
In the early 1990s, the number of U.S. high school graduates began to increase. The upward tick was both consistent and striking. 5 years of increases…then 10 years of increases…15 years…20+ years of increases! The ever-growing numbers of high school graduates translated into a real boon for higher education. The number of colleges and universities across the nation increased from approximately 3,500 institutions to 4,700 institutions. These institutions then made sizeable investments in a number of areas including campus amenities such as residence halls, fitness centers, and—of course—the proverbial lazy rivers. We in student affairs also benefited, albeit to the consternation of some of my faculty colleagues. In fact, the number of student affairs professionals and other non-academic administrators more than doubled while instructional budgets saw only modest increases.

Once we’ve made it in, will our voice be enough?
