Issues Under Review

Capacity-Based Admissions Management Workgroup


September 13, 2017

Dear Colleagues:

The report of the Capacity-Based Admissions Management Workgroup has been submitted for Senate review. In the fall of 2013, a Capacity-Based Admissions Management Workgroup was charged with recommending an admissions-based method to manage the distribution of students, so that the preferred majors of incoming students could be closely matched to available student openings in each department without necessitating the use of impacted status. In the Fall of 2014, Senate Council approved a three-year enrollment management pilot program. The pilot has concluded, and this report from the Dean of Undergraduate Education includes the recommendation that the program be made permanent. 

The review document is posted to the right under Resources. Faculty who wish to comment are welcome to do so. Please send your comments to me no later than October 31, 2017.
