Enrollment Planning: Progress through shared governance

Strategic Enrollment Planning Step 6: Quantifiable Goal & ROI Identification

In an effort to best serve our students, EIU’s enrollment goals have been set to create a sustainable student population that suits our current campus infrastructure and lends to student success. A model was created based on future goals of reaching a 77% freshman-to-sophomore retention rate and 9,000 to 10,000 students enrolled. The model is based on goals set over 10 years that build to a stable cohort of incoming freshman and transfer students in five years. The model includes a 2.5% average increase in graduate student enrollment each year.
