Guest Post: Ruffalo Noel Levitz Ruffalo Noel Levitz is a Platinum Sponsor at the 2017 TargetX Summit Predictive modeling for student search has become a must for any institution that wants to reduce waste in their search buy and maximize the impact of their program by, for lack of a better analogy, fishing where the fish are… For instance, Ruffalo Noel Levitz produces 4 predictive models (Prospect to Application) for each search program, with the idea that students within 100 miles of the university will have very different attributes from those outside of that radius, or even outside the state or on the other side of the country. From student information systems to MOOCs and e-learning, technology has become enmeshed in all aspects of higher education. So it’s no surprise that technology can have a profound effect on student progress and success. However, in response to accelerated advancements in technology, institutions must re-evaluate their existing resources and processes to ensure that their technologies are able to support today’s students. April doesn’t have to mean crunch time. Get ahead of your enrollment targets by creating smart, sophisticated call campaigns using Enrollment Intelligence. When deposit information isn’t enough, leverage social behavioral data to shorten your call lists to just those students you know you can move through the funnel. The month of April can be an overwhelming, anxiety ridden time if you’re in enrollment management. Whether you’re at a small private institution with counselor caseloads of 200 or a large state school admitting 30,000 students, the period approaching the deposit deadline can make or break your class. Acceptance letters may be in the mail, but we know your admissions counselors are still out on the road, working hard to recruit. New updates to Enrollment Intelligence on mobile help your staff work smarter, not harder to reach their students. You’ve spent months planning your communication plan for admitted student events and now it’s being executed. Emails are going out with your counselor’s signature and postcards have arrived in mailboxes across the country. Now what? Last week, the Uversity team was lucky enough to host James Steen, Vice-President of Enrollment Management at Houston Baptist University (HBU), for a webinar that detailed his approach to a successful enrollment strategy. Under his leadership, HBU has experienced unprecedented growth in its freshman student enrollment which is why we couldn’t resist the opportunity to ask him a few follow-up questions. You want students to get information specific to their needs, but you also don’t want to bombard them with countless emails in their inbox. So where does Announcements fit into your email marketing strategy? It all starts with Enrollment Intelligence. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C1gq-KhP3b0 Lately, we’ve talked a lot about Enrollment Intelligence but that’s because we’re so excited about the 2015 release!
