Schultz: Enrollment cap may be used at Kansas State

By Bryan Richardson

K-State President Kirk Schulz mentioned the concept of enrollment management during a classified employees forum Friday.

Schulz said after the forum that a consultant from Noel-Levitz Higher Education Consulting is planning to visit in mid-December.

“They’re going to have a workshop to start talking about what enrollment management means, how you build a freshman class and what kind of things we need to be thinking about and considering,” he said.

Schulz spoke in July about enrollment cap in the fall as a response to declining state support.

He said he isn’t sure whether this would mean capping enrollment overall, limiting freshman classes — or any other possibility at this point.

Kansas State officials estimated an approximately $6.6 million cut in state funding for the 2013-14 academic year due to a 1.5 percent across-the-board cut and a salary expense reduction.

The fiscal year 2015 budget also includes a 1.5 percent cut and salary expense reduction.
