SEMC recommends starting each engagement with directed conversations with campus leaders.

While qualitative interviews will lead to a subsequent analysis of your quantitative data and administrative structure, our experience tells us that it is imperative to understand the personalities and skill set[s] that execute on the plan day-in and day-out. Once we fully understand how your campus team understands and executes on your existing plan, we can quickly begin to construct a path to reach your goals.

Let’s talk. An engagement with SEM will take a mutually agreed upon path that may range from a simple, project-based engagement like enhancing your marketing campaign to a full consultation on staffing optimization, to a full reallocation of your existing enrollment management budget, or executive coaching for your new VPEM. For full details of our services, see our Services page. We are happy to send you examples of our work, furnish you with references, or visit campus to explain more about our approach to strategic enrollment management.
