Enrollment Updates: Supporting Students for Fall 2021
May 6 @ 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Optional professional networking segment from 9:30 AM – 10:00AM. The nationwide downturn in student enrollment across higher education over the past year — reflecting the continuing impact of COVID-19 — has fueled the need for innovative approaches to support students in applying, enrolling, and persisting. While CUNY experienced a 5.5 percent overall enrollment dip for Fall 2020, with 3,500 fewer freshmen enrolling across the University, the most significant drop took place at the seven community colleges, where enrollment fell 15.4 percent. During this session you will hear updates on application and enrollment trends and have time in breakouts with staff from each CUNY campus and other community-based organizations to share lessons learned and practices that are working, organize around creative opportunities to collaborate, and leave with new ideas and resources to support students from May-September 2021.
