The core purpose of UT Austin, to transform lives for the benefit of society, depends upon enrolling an excellent, high-potential undergraduate student body that is racially, ethnically, geographically, and economically diverse. The University of Texas at Austin scholarly community provides a strong educational foundation and learning environment that unlocks students’ potential by preparing them as citizens and leaders, and empowering them to improve their own lives and positively impact their communities.
The university recently created an enrollment management division, with a coordinated and collaborative strategic enrollment management vision in mind. As UT Austin looks toward the development of a strategic enrollment management plan, in the fall of 2017, Provost McInnis assembled the Strategic Enrollment Management Faculty Working Group (SEM Working Group). The SEM Working Group consists of faculty from colleges, schools, and units across campus who will consider principles that should guide a new undergraduate student enrollment management strategy in line with the core purpose and values of the university; and will develop a report and recommendations for the Office of the Executive Vice President and Provost.
