22 How Did We Do?

23 The Entire Campus Must be Engaged in the Solution “Changing demographics is not simply an issue for enrollment managers—and enrollment managers cannot “do magic” to perpetuate the status quo. Trustees, presidents, deans, faculty, and other administrators need to engage in some serious strategic planning to project manageable goals, not only from the institution’s perspective, but also from the perspective of providing access and opportunity to this new group of students.” SOURCE: College Board. (2005). “The Impact of Demographic Changes on Higher Education”
