Topics include the admissions and financial aid processes, placement testing,class planning, degree plans, etc. This will allow Student Information Center (enrollmentservices generalists) to digitally engage with students who are accustom to online formatsand experiences. The meetings can be archived for students who were not able to attend.2. Fully implement Banner Relationship Module (BRM) to engage, motivate and communicatestudents as they progress through the enrollment funnel: connection, entry, progress andcompletion. This will ensure that students are advised and aware of next steps, mandatesand engagement opportunities on campus. The BRM workflow allows for multipledistribution and delivery options including email, text, targeted announcements, and mail.3. Develop a student progress dashboard for the student portal.
