Leading in an Increasingly Unpredictable Environment: The Role of Graduate School Deans in Strategic Enrollment Planning

Graduate enrollment at many institutions remained flat in recent years, and certain academic programs were prone to greater declines than others. Several factors have contributed to these outcomes, including immigration restrictions, a strong job market, and a growing aversion to debt. The graduate enrollment market has become even more unpredictable with the impact of the novel coronavirus pandemic. The current landscape presents an opportunity for graduate school deans and university leaders to approach enrollments with a strategic lens.The facilitated discussion will highlight real-world examples from graduate school deans – providing attendees an opportunity to learn from peers across the country.
