Preparing students for social work roles would require the university to integrate hands-on learning experiences into the newly created online courses and connect students with fieldwork opportunities early in the program.
The partner was facing declining enrollments and was aware that it needed to take action to fulfill two critical goals: increase student enrollment and grow its brand presence while continuing its tradition of maintaining strong relationships with students.
Once the programs were identified in collaboration with the partner, detailed launch plans were built and executed. These included: strategic planning, online course development, faculty support, marketing, and student recruitment and retention.
Expanding its partnership to achieve specific goals, various services were applied to different programs, including an Engage LMS implementation, instructional design support, and expanded Enrollment Services support.
