Strategic Enrollment


The Strategic Enrollment Task Force will develop an integrated   strategic enrollment plan that includes goals, metrics, accountability and self assessment. The plan will adopt a creative, data analytics-driven strategy for strategic enrollment, examining both the Main and Downtown Campuses as well as online offerings. The task force will create a set of guiding assumptions around work force needs, WSCH production, and differentiated tuition, as well as capital, infrastructure, student services, and faculty line needs. Considerations will include the 60/30 TX Higher Education Plan (Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board) as well as the optimal mix of undergraduate and graduate students, in-state and out-of-state students, and international students.

    The Strategic Enrollment Task Force has developed a set of initial strategies that is expected to result in an overall enrollment of more than 38,000 students in Fall 2023 (33,000 undergraduates, 4600 graduates and 780+ post bacs).  Additional strategies will be developed over the next 6 months while we are implementing the first set of strategies.  As we build out additional strategies at the graduate level and also focus on retention and student success strategies we can expect to see enrollments in excess of 45,000 students by Fall 2028.
