Explore Enrollment Management's initiatives to help students succeed.

Purpose and Goals

Patricia Morales, Vice Provost, Enrollment Management, compares Enrollment Management to an impressionist painting: “A lot of colors interacting, but as you step back it comes into focus.” 

The purpose of our office is to help students succeed by providing the best possible experience. In seeing both the micro and macro picture, we are able to be adaptive, nimble, and relevant—helping students and creating a stronger university. We see how each office is impacted by enrollment and are in a position to advance their goals. With our insights, they can explore new ideas and conduct further research—all to understand the needs of students and create an optimal experience.

In addition to gathering and analyzing data, we recognize that we are impacted by our student population. Our students help us learn and grow, just as we help them. As a minority-thriving institution, our diverse campus makes us better, makes us richer, challenges us, and allows us to become more curious. 

Working together with colleagues across the university, we are positioned to create a future-ready campus that produces future-ready students.
