Postsecondary educational institutions face more uncertainty about student enrollments than at any time in the modern era. Schools can no longer rely on past enrollment patterns to predict their yield of admitted students. SEM planning is a blueprint that has to be continually adjusted to the ever-evolving campuses and world around us. With this in mind, this book makes the case that “community” is a tool that can be used to create connections and build a web of interlocking conditions and supports that encourage both recruitment and retention.
Fifteen SEM professionals were selected to share their experience, research, strategic thinking, and, above all, practice, in making connections and building relationships. This book will ensure that making connections becomes a clearly defined core function of SEM and a hallmark of persistence and student success. It defines possibilities and shares stories that highlight SEM’s unique ability to influence student engagement. It explores how creative and experienced colleagues applied their individual styles of SEM connective practice at their disparate institutions and discusses the patterns that emerged. The shared experiences of the authors reinforces the fact that SEM plays a critical—and direct—role in making connections.
Including a foreword by renowned SEM leader Don Hossler, and using the lenses of various institutional types from both the US and Canada, the book focuses on student groups with particular needs for community and inclusion.
Culminating with five new SEM Principles of Practice, the book provides practitioners with new agency to make a difference in building connections for accessibility and belonging.
