President Eibeck calls for committee to develop strategic enrollment plan

Sep 21, 2015

In today's volatile higher education environment, a comprehensive and proactive strategic enrollment plan will be necessary for Pacific to thrive and to ensure that the quality, breadth and diversity of our students is adequate to support the vision of Pacific 2020, the priorities of the Academic Plan, and the financial strength of the university.

To that end, President Eibeck has called for the establishment of a Strategic Enrollment Plan Committee charged to develop a strategic enrollment strategy with a five-year lifespan and 10-year vision. The plan will determine the enrollment type and levels necessary to achieve strategic goals and the mechanisms that will be used to reach enrollment targets. It also will provide initial assessments regarding the plan's impact to infrastructure, facilities and technology across the university and make five-year financial projections.

Provost Maria Pallavicini will oversee the process, keeping the President and cabinet informed of progress. The committee will work in consultation with the Strategic Planning Committee, the Council of Deans and others to ensure best practices and information are brought to bear. The university community will be kept informed of progress and the final plan distributed widely across the university.

The committee will present enrollment targets/scenarios to the President no later than October 1, 2015, and presented to the Board of Regents at the October meeting. An overview of possible tactics to reach enrollment goals and academic program-specific targets will be presented to the President no later than January 15, 2016, and shared with the Board at the February meeting. The final plan will be presented no later than April 1, 2016.
