Enrollment Trends and Projections Dashboard
The Student Enrollment Trends and Projections Dashboard is a tool within the suite of The MAPS Project data products created to show higher education decision-makers the relationship between population data, enrollment data, and the potential impacts of trends like distance learning. The dashboard will help higher education leaders gain foresight into upcoming shifts in the industry that could impact their institutions.
The dashboard will provide users with an understanding of how and where undergraduate students are choosing to attend college, how that has changed over time, and what enrollment could look like in the future. This will help to inform recruitment efforts, strategic planning, resource allocation, as well as investment into programs and the infrastructure of online learning.
