SEM Campaign Planning Workshop

The design of the Academic SEM Campaign Planning Workshop recognizes that the nature, scope, and methods of recruiting have changed dramatically over the past few years. The workshop recalibrates the fundamental components, restructures an alignment around five integrated workflows the intent, of which, is to develop a strong competitive position in the enrollment marketplace. The campaign, once developed and launched, is capable of forging near, mid, and long term strategies for enrollment and fiscal health.Session Summaries

  • Session I: Anatomy of a SEM Campaign
    Reviews the various SEM Campaign structures and processes that collaborate to bring about an effective yield in enrollment. Introduces strategic variables and options and their relation to infrastructure and organizational units, roles and responsibilities.
  • Session II: SEM Campaign Strategies
    Establishes a strategy baseline and a taxonomy of reference Campaign types. Explores the various building blocks and enhancement strategies such as optimizing social media, developing a narrative, integrating digital platforms and messages, optimizing communications channels, and tracking influence and yield.
  • Session III: Integrating the 5 Workflows of Academic SEM
    Reviews the basics of integrating curriculum and enrollment strategies by focusing upon synchronizing the five fundamental workflows of Academic Strategic Enrollment Management.
  • Session IV: SEM Campaign Structures and Components
    Examines basic campaign structures and the various components that give a campaign design coherence and provides the means to achieve enrollment performance goals. These elements are then used to frame a basic Campaign Plan.
  • Session V: The Ultimate Goal–Strategic Position
    Establishes the longitudinal goal of building a strong competitive position by planning multiple year campaign arcs that create recurring yield. Enrollment health is built via sustained campaigns. Campaign design will be presented as a means of optimizing short range (bump), mid-range, and long range enrollment and fiscal health.
  • Session VI: Program of Study Strategies
    Programs of Study (POS) are the lifeblood of academic life and embedding them in marketing and recruitment are central to effective campaigns. The fundamentals of revitalizing programs of study to enhance marketability and methods of embedding marketable value into a program of study are explored. Strategies for leveraging POS revitalization and enhancing market segment alignment are reviewed.
  • Session VII: Campaign Management Strategies
    Campaign management is essential to effective enrollment development. The basics are introduced and structures, methods and processes are outlined.
  • Session VIII: The Campaign Plan

Institute Philosophy & Pedagogy

The current paradigm shift requires unprecedented synergy and collaboration between academic and enrollment management. A philosophy that is both learner and learning centered must be focused through a lens that is intensely curriculum-centered. The Institute curriculum delivers practical strategic solutions for short, medium and long range impact. Institute pedagogy uses a blended seminar style guided by a digital interactive syllabus with readings, self-study and participant dialog. Participants’ home institution will be the subject of their case study. Participants will continue to have the opportunity for interaction with institute colleagues long after attending the program as they contribute to the emerging Academic SEM community of practice.About the Faculty
