Strategic Enrolment Management 


The purpose of strategic enrolment management (SEM) is to ensure an institutional focus on the importance of enrolment. High-quality academic programs require proper funding, and setting and meeting enrolment targets assists the university in meeting its revenue goals. Effective SEM planning is a critical component of institutional decision-making and requires cooperation and collaboration across business and academic units.

 

The Role of the Provost

To facilitate the SEM process at Queen's, the Strategic Enrolment Management Group, chaired by the provost, was established in 2012 and tasked with developing a Long-Term Strategic Enrolment Management Framework, which outlines principles, goals and actions aimed at aligning enrolment management with the university's strategic priorities.

The Strategic Enrolment Management Group also engages in ongoing short-term enrolment planning and recommends short-term enrolment targets to the Senate Committee on Academic Development (SCAD), for approval by Senate. Throughout this process, SEMG consults directly with faculties, schools and student service units to ensure sufficient capacity exists when setting targets, and to ensure that the quality of the student experience remains high.
