2020 Undergraduate Enrollment Plan: Objectives and Strategies Limit freshman enrollment to improve selectivity and student success. Develop recruiting, orientation, and student support programs designed specifically for transfer students. Take deliberate steps to improve graduation rates. Reduce barriers to intra-campus transfers. Increase out-of-state and international undergraduate enrollments.

Fall 2013 Undergraduate Enrollment New student enrollment: Met or exceeded targets for new freshmen and external transfers Total student enrollment: Approximately 385 fewer undergraduates than projected –Largely a result of increased graduation numbers and decreased time to degree
Mitigating the Enrollment Impact Enrollment Planning Committee actively re-evaluated NC State’s enrollment targets for Fall 2014 Small increase in qualified new freshman and transfer students admitted for Spring –Spring 2013: 45 new freshmen and 384 new transfers enrolled –Spring 2014*: 66 new freshmen and 400 new transfers enrolled *Preliminary data
New Cohorts (Fall 2009 – Fall 2013) Source: Total new freshmen has decreased by 10.2% since Total new transfers has increased by 10.8% since 2009.

2020 UG Enrollment Plan: Next Steps Maintain freshman and transfer enrollment trajectories. Continue recruitment and yield efforts with additional emphasis on enhancing diversity. Continue to promote existing programmatic efforts to support student success. Increase utilization of existing early warning systems and develop new monitoring efforts, as appropriate. Develop consistent and effective intervention programs for students experiencing difficulty in transition. Continue to develop CODA and new internal transfer strategies.
2020 Graduate Enrollment Plan Spring 2014 Progress Report
Goal: Increase graduate enrollment as long as there is sufficient demand that we can meet with resources adequate to sustain the quality of education Key strategies: Set ambitious doctoral enrollment targets Build professional master’s programs that provide career development opportunities 2020 Graduate Enrollment Plan
Why Focus on Doctoral Growth? As a one of two UNC Very High Research Activity universities, expansion of graduate education – particularly doctoral education – is our highest priority for enrollment growth –Doctoral graduate students provide the intellectual input and activities essential to advance research. –When graduate students complete their training, they are the work force of tomorrow and help recruit the next generation of scholars.

Fall 2013 Graduate Enrollment New graduate student enrollment (on-campus): –On target for new master’s enrollment (1,636 actual; 1,610 target) –Below target (-75) for new doctoral students (537 actual; 612 target) Total graduate student enrollment (on-campus): –Below target (-263) for total master’s enrollment (3,545 actual; 3,808 target) –On target for total doctoral enrollment (3,112 actual; 3,116 target). Since we’ve missed new enrollment targets two years in a row, we don’t anticipate being able to maintain total enrollment w/o attention DE enrollment for degree seeking graduate students: –Above target (1,677 actual; 1,518 target)
Mitigating the Enrollment Impact Enrollment Planning Committee actively re-evaluated NC State’s enrollment targets for Fall 2014 We strongly urged graduate programs to consider Spring 2014 admission of any qualified masters or doctoral applicants –Spring 2013: 519 new graduate students (375 masters, 77 doctoral, 67 certificates) –Spring 2014*: 531 new graduate students (413 masters, 69 doctoral, 49 certificates) 2014 Doctoral Recruitment Plan *Preliminary data

2014 Doctoral Recruitment Plan One-time funding model targeting doctoral enrollment in programs that indicated they can meet the following criteria: –Capacity for Fall 2014 doctoral enrollment growth (faculty, space, etc.) –Capacity to provide research funding to convert all additional new Fall 2014 students to external (non-state supported) funding in year two and beyond
2014 Doctoral Recruitment Plan These one-time recruiting stipends are being offered based on the following funding model: –Funding will only be provided if the program actually accomplishes an increase in enrollment of new doctoral students –Students will be appointed on a one-year RA paid from state appropriated funding provided from the Provost’s Office –Stipend levels will be "competitive" to attract students –GSSP coverage (first year) is included –Students will be expected to be exposed (lab rotations, etc.) to faculty with active research programs to maximize the likelihood of external funding support for year two and beyond
2014 Doctoral Recruitment Plan Financials –Goal: Increase new doctoral enrollment by a minimum of 55 students –Initial cost ( ) will be ~$2.5M ($1.5M salary/benefits + $1.0M GSSP) –Potential to generate ~$1.76M in enrollment funding annually –Doctoral students will register as full- time for up to 4 years, generating ~$7M total in enrollment funding.
Future Plans to 2020 and Beyond GSSP re-design –Prioritize doctoral enrollment –Enhance sustainability (i.e. increase as enrollment increases) Increase number and level of doctoral stipends available –Currently not competitive with peers –Eliminate reversion of state funded assistantships –Incentivize inclusion of doctoral stipends in grant proposals –Continue Doctoral Recruitment Plan and expand to 75 (2015) and 100 (2016 and beyond) –Make Doctoral Student support a Campaign Priority »Chancellor’s Fellowship
