Extended Abstract

The pandemic has accelerated the need for innovative, online programs – and a new flexible model for online program enablement can provide a flexible, revenue-growth focused partnership that truly moves the needle on enrollment growth. Over the course of a two-year partnership, Saint Louis University and Collegis Education built a sustainable operational model that has weathered the challenges of the current environment – allowing the SLU School for Professional Studies to not only maintain enrollments, but exceed its growth goals. While the higher education landscape is saturated with OPM vendors, SLU looked to an unbundled OPM partnership that provided flexibility, collaboration and transparency. In this session, Saint Louis University will share why they chose a partnership model with Collegis Education, and how the foundation built together has allowed the University to thrive during the pandemic and maintain operational success.

Learning Outcomes:

  • How SLU approached their search for a collaborative partner outside of OPM vendors
  • Steps to build an internal enrollment foundation through program strategy and differentiation, admissions augmentation, process optimization and digital marketing.
  • Breeding a culture of continued innovation and constant improvement.
  • The measurable impact over the course of two years
