SASFAA Enrollment Management Forum
October 23 – 24, 2017 - Orlando, FL

Join us for SASFAA’s inaugural Enrollment Management Forum, October 23 – 24, 2017 at the Embassy Suites, Lake Buena Vista Resort, in Orlando, Florida. To many financial aid professionals, enrollment management is this mysterious function at our institution. We know it involves admission, and somehow financial aid is involved. Perhaps we even see retention efforts spearheaded by the enrollment manager… that Great and Wonderful Oz who lives in the Emerald City and sends flying monkeys to spy on financial aid people. Who is this Oz? How did Oz get to be in that position? How do financial aid professionals move into such great and mighty positions?

Well, the SASFAA Enrollment Management Forum is just the place to draw back the curtain and delve into topics like:

  • The evolution of enrollment management as a profession
  • Managing enrollment at an institution of higher education from the following perspectives:
    • Four-year Private
    • Four-year Public
    • Community College
  • Enrollment management organizational structures at different types of institutions
  • Enrollment management and its fiscal role at different types of institutions
  • Trends in high school graduation and those effects on the admission pipeline
  • Use of local and national data for enrollment management planning and action
    • IPEDS
    • NCES
    • Student Search Services

The facilitators for this forum are:

Dr. Forrest Stuart, Associate Vice President for Enrollment Management and Director of Financial Aid at Furman University in Greenville, SC

Mr. Chuck Knepfle, Associate Vice President for Enrollment Management at Clemson University in Clemson, SC

Dr. Laurie Wolfe, Executive Dean of Student Services at Des Moines Area Community College (retired) in Des Moines, IA
