Enrollment Management

Resolution Number: 
Assigned to : 
Local Senates

Whereas there are many community colleges that are currently unable to meet their growth targets for enrollment, and

Whereas enrollment management and establishment of floors for class sizes have a serious impact on student success, and

Whereas the administrations of many community colleges are developing plans to control enrollment by such activities as creating contingency plans for using 4000 and 5000 accounts to pay for enrollment shortfalls, creating mega divisions that temporarily generate increased enrollments and freezing block grants and new hires,

Resolved that the Academic Senate direct the Executive Committee to write a position paper that contains guidelines for local academic senates to assure that they are thoroughly involved in decision making involving enrollment management.
