Higher education**** course project **part one**


Course Project Overview**Part one***

Course Project will revolve around a contentious issue in colleges and universities today—transfer student enrollment policy. The enrollment of transfer students touches on a number of sensitive organizational and cultural issues. Using the following scenario, you will assess the dynamics and cultures of a hypothetical institution, identify opportunities for change and sources of resistance, and propose collaboration strategies based on your understanding of organizational theories and concepts.


Not unlike many universities today, Apex State University (name of hypothetical institution) is experiencing a serious decline in student enrollment—more specifically, in the number of students transferring to Apex. The decline in transfer student enrollment is having a serious impact on overall tuition revenue. A review of system wide data has convinced the president that the issue deserves further scrutiny. She has asked you, the director of enrollment management, to prepare a position paper detailing transfer policies and procedures. The president is seeking a better understanding of how the process works, who the stakeholders are, where they are within the institution (positions, departments), to whom do they answer, and what kind of resistance can be expected. She has asked you for recommendations on how the people involved in the process can work together to achieve mutually agreeable solutions.


You will write a position paper that identifies the following:

Identification of stakeholders, their positions/departments within the (hypothetical institution) and their roles/interests in the transfer enrollment process.
