Our Mantra

We boldly and innovatively champion success for all students in every stage of their educational journey.

Our Division Vision

The Division of Enrollment Management and Student Success (EMSS) will engage with campus colleagues and the community to plan and execute strategies to support enrollment stabilization and growth. Specifically, we will:

  • work collaboratively and diligently to deliver an exemplary and transformative experience which supports academic excellence to achieve equitable and successful student outcomes and attain optimal enrollment.
  • operate interdependently to collect, analyze and share disaggregated information with campus stakeholders utilizing an enrollment management ecosystem framework.
  • actively support becoming a fully integrated student-ready college that will serve as a state and national model for our use of data and support programs that address and impact the successful preparation for our students' educational, career or life goals.

Our Division Mission

The Division of Enrollment Management and Student Success (EMSS) exists to provide the resources students need outside of the classroom to be successful intellectually, financially, culturally, emotionally, socially, physically, spiritually, and environmentally while expanding their options for current and future success. Through an ethic of care, our mission as educators is to guide and support the diverse needs of our students in their quest to complete their academic program in a reasonable time at the lowest possible cost.

Our Core Principles

We are Student-Centric: Laser focused on the success of our students which is at the center of decisions, processes, tools, and communications. Compliance is not compromised. Our policies and practices eliminate or reduce barriers to the extent possible.

We Trust: Foster an environment and culture of mutual trust, communication, and accountability among talented and committed unit leaders and team members who value the diversity of students and each other. We earn this trust by keeping our commitments. We embrace the mission and goals of the college.

We Build Capacity: Achieve cohesive, supportive, and streamlined systems for students from the date of first inquiry through graduation and beyond, we work to create and appropriately staff sustainable structures with clearly defined goals; professional development; scalable strategies; thoughtful implementation and execution; frequent individual feedback; and on-going assessment and quality improvement.

We are Strategic and Intentional: Examine and focus each independent and interdependent process, office, and role as it impacts the student through a lens of equity, support and outcomes in alignment with our strategic plan.

We are Data-Informed: Utilize data (ours and others); research and apply best and promising practices to create context for sense-making, equity consciousness, and make adjustments through the lens that 'every student' has the potential to succeed.
