Student Affairs 2013 Goal Assessment 1. Enroll a fall 2013 first-time freshman class of at least 1,150 students with an average ACT score equal to or above the state and national averages. 1243 FTF enrolled for the fall with an ACT Average of 21.75 (19.5 state and 20.9 national) 2. Increase the number of veterans enrolling in Nicholls for fall 2013 by five percent as compared to fall 2012. The number of veterans enrolled remained stagnant. There was only a .03% increase. 3. Maintain the number of first-time, full-time minority scholarship students enrolling fall 2013 as compared to fall 2012. For Fall 2012, we had 69 FTF receiving scholarships. For 2013, we had 71 students receiving minority scholarships. 4. Increase the number of packaged financial aid students by 5% comparing August 1 figures for 2013 vs. 2012. Aid Year Total Packaged Prior to Aug 1 1011 6077 3503 % Packaged Prior to Aug 1 58% 1112 6087 4538 1213 6161 1314 6086 Prior to July 1 2425 % Packaged Prior to July 1 40% 75% 3724 4573 74% 4480 74% Prior to June 1 1323 % Packaged Prior to June 1 22% 61% 0 0% 3734 61% 3001 49% 3907 64% 3399 56% Please note that the goal of trying to increase the number of packaged financial aid students by 5% comparing August 1 from one year to the next is no longer a feasible goal. As you can see, we have mastered the number of people packaged by that time consistently for the last 3 years. Since our enrollment/population is really not increasing by that much from year to year, a 5% increase is no longer an effective goal to shoot for or an accurate measurement to make. Instead, the more positive outcome would be to look at how much we have improved in the % packaged prior to July 1 or June 1 each year. This shows that students are getting packaged earlier. For now, we can definitely strive to package students earlier than the year before provided all new year software updates are released by Banner Ellucian and loaded in to our system by our Computer Services Department in a timely manner. However, this too, at some point, will not be a feasible goal because we don't have any say in when the new year updates are actually released to schools (usually March if no issues). For a future goal, we may need to isolate and assess a specific population of students and focus on increasing the % packaged by a certain date, etc. I'll have to think about it. Please share with Dr. Dial so that we can remove the 5% increase from next year's goals. 5. IMPLEMENT LANDSCAPE PROGRAM FOR AUXILIARY SERVICE UNITS. This goal was not accomplished. It will be moved to the 2014 Auxiliary Service Goals. 6. Complete Planning for renovation of Game Room and Racquetball Court areas of the Student Union.
