Can you contribute effectively to your school’s and students’ success without understanding SEM?

Everyone on campus has an important role in supporting student success and achieving organizational objectives.

But without a good understanding of what SEM is and how it works, you and your team will be limited to what you can contribute.

The Fundamentals of Strategic Enrolment Management program is designed to give everyone in PSE – regardless of their department, office or Faculty – the foundation they need to contribute effectively to your SEM success.

Program & Schedule

(All times based on Eastern time zone)

The Fundamentals of Strategic Enrolment Management program features four, 2.5-hour sessions that include workshops, presentations and panel discussions that will be presented live online over a span of 4 weeks. Weekly sessions will include opportunities for participants to reflect on their learning, take part in small and large group discussions, meet with their peers, and complete self-guided learning assignments.

In addition to the four live sessions, it is expected that participants will complete 1-2 hours of homework each week. Homework will consist of literature reviews, posting and commenting on discussion board topics, connecting with co-participants, watching video recordings, and/or completing quizzes.

Participants will be supported via a dedicated web portal to access educational materials, connect with peers, post and comment on coursework, discuss topics of interest, and share best practices and information over the course of the program. All live workshops will be recorded and made available for review for 6 months after the completion of the program.
