proudly announces the sixth annual

Enrollment Management Academy 2020

for California Community Colleges
Monday, June 22–Thursday, June 25, 2020

The Enrollment Management Academy 2020 has been transitioned to an online event. Zoom links will be sent to registrants in advance.

In response to requests from a wide range of community college leaders seeking enrollment management and forecasting assistance, the Claremont Graduate University School of Educational Studies (SES) will hold a four-day Enrollment Management Academy from June 22–25, 2020.

Lead Instructors
Offered on the Claremont Graduate University campus, instruction will be led by Pamela Deegan and Carlos Lopez, Vice President of Academic Affairs at Moreno Valley. Accompanying them will be a team of experts.

What to Expect
Working with an enrollment management template and calendar, participants will be given the opportunity to develop the genesis of an enrollment management plan for their respective campuses.

The interactive approach used at the Enrollment Management Academy (EMA) involves having colleges send teams that will learn the basics of enrollment management and will then work together, with guidance from the EMA facilitators, to analyze their own college data. The end product of the EMA process is that colleges will leave with an enrollment management plan or the beginning of such a plan. The plan is geared toward two objectives—meeting student need while, at the same time, attaining the college FTES target. Those attendees who do not have access to college data will be given data from which they can practice the concepts learned at the academy.

The Academy specifically addresses the new Student-Centered Funding Formula (SCFF), as well as strategies that can be used by colleges to maximize funding under each SCFF category.

The Academy has been assisting California Community Colleges in successfully planning and scheduling programs to ensure student success since 2015. To date, we have hosted 70 colleges with many opting to return to the Academy in order to train additional college colleagues involved in the enrollment management process.

The cost to participate in the Academy is $1,250/person (includes morning and afternoon workshop sessions). If three or more individuals from the same institution register and attend as a team, tuition is discounted to $1,000/per person. (Past Academy participants have found it ideal when a team from the same institution attend together. CIOs, deans, CBOs, CSSOs, and researchers can form highly effective teams.)

The Academy has received an Equity Grant from the California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office to provide partial support to defray the cost of participation. Participants will receive instructions on how to apply for these funds ($300 per participant) at the conclusion of the Academy.
