Enrollment Planning: Progress through shared governance

Strategic Enrollment Planning Step 6: Quantifiable Goal & ROI Identification

Plans likely to "compete" for the same students also were "de-duped" to reduce the possibility of double counting.

However, it is possible that ongoing enrollment management efforts may enable Eastern to surpass these goals.
