 Academic Affairs

 

SEM Action Plans

Action plans provide a macro-level accounting of the campus initiatives, outcomes, timelines, responsibility centers, and results supporting each enrollment goal.  The sub-steps required to achieve each action are not articulated within these documents but, rather, are within the purview of the offices and/or individuals listed as responsible for a given action.

Each action plan is initially drafted using the strategies outlined within the SEM Council Recommended Enrollment Goal Strategies document.  Primary stakeholders, i.e. offices and individuals listed as responsibility centers, participate in defining specific action steps. Additional feedback is sought through SEM Council, the Council of Deans, and the Chancellor's Cabinet and opportunities for campus-wide feedback will be available.  SEM Council will monitor the progress and results of each plan. Academic Affairs is responsible for maintaining the action plans.  Contact Mary Keenan, Director of Strategic Enrollment & Institutional Research, with updates or comments.

Campus stakeholders are invited to contribute to achievement of UMD enrollment goals by identifying new actions that they or their collegial group will undertake in support of an enrollment goal. You may also contribute to actions already listed by contacting the office or individual listed as the responsibility center for that activity.

UMD's current enrollment goals are listed below. Select the ACTION PLAN link for additional information. Additional action plans will be added during this fall and spring semesters.
