Briefing Book 2011-2012


Dear Colleague: The Division of Enrollment Management and Student Affairs (EMSA) at The College at Brockport is proud to present our Briefing Book for the 2011-2012 academic year. We were afforded many opportunities during the last year to showcase the value that EMSA adds to our students’ Brockport experience. In reading this report, you’ll learn of our successes and progress, and of the many ways we continue to advance in our 16 distinct areas while we assist students. The annual report provides an overview of each department and their accomplishments. We utilize data and key performance indicators to assess our effectiveness within the College’s four constructs of academic quality and engagement, co-curricular and support services, learning environment and quality of place, and culture of philanthropy and alumni connectedness. As evidenced in this report, our division achieved many accomplishments that support that College’s four constructs and its mission. • • • • • • •

The much-anticipated Special Events and Recreation Center, or simply SERC, will celebrate its grand opening during this fall’s Homecoming Weekend. Spanning 160,000 square-feet, SERC is home to a stateof-the-art wellness center and sports facilities, and will soon host many of the College’s major events. Enrollment continued to be strong, with undergraduate admissions meeting all annual target goals. Residential Life/Living Learning Communities continues to expand the already robust Living Learning Communities program with the number of LLC’s offered, number of students in LLC’s, number of faculty members involved, etc., while still preserving the small community feel of the LLC’s. Enrollment Management implemented document imaging across several departments, thereby streamlining the admissions, advisement, registration and financial aid processes while contributing to the College’s ongoing sustainability efforts. The 2nd Annual Saturday of Service during Welcome Weekend was a success with 870 volunteers completing 1823 hours at 52 community service locations. We were once again designated as a Military Friendly School by GI Jobs magazine, an honor reserved for the top 15% of schools deemed to embrace veterans as students. With student success as our highest goal, Brockport implemented a second-year residency requirement requiring all first-time college students to reside on campus for the first two years. This is another benefit to students as there is substantial research linking on-campus living to multiple indicators of student success such as GPA, engagement in co-curricular activities, graduation rates and satisfaction with their educational experiences.

I have so much pride in the work of our staff and in their contributions to the success of our students. Thank you for taking the time to review our accomplishments from this past year. The Division of Enrollment Management and Student Affairs plans to continue to provide unique opportunities to all Brockport students and to support their achievements both in and outside of the classroom. Sincerely,

Kathryn Wilson, EdD, JD Vice President for Enrollment Management and Student Affairs 3
