The SEM Quarterly was launched to fill a void in an ever-growing conversation, to explore the many aspects and broad potential of strategic enrollment management. As budgets fall and demands for accountability rise, a greater understanding of the student population can only benefit institutions of higher learning. The Quarterly takes a long, integrated view of the student lifecycle, while respecting the student as a learner, rather than a customer. From admissions through course selection, advisers, and choice of major to graduation and career, SEM offers practical ways to optimize student success among an increasingly diverse group of learners. On the administrative side, the Quarterly improves institutional function with articles on business practices, marketing, record-keeping, institutional research and analysis, and alumni relations. The authors are all involved in SEM and the articles reflect their practical orientation and experience.
The SEM Quarterly is published by John Wiley & Sons with AACRAO (the American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers).
