Location: Seattle University
Dates: June 7-9, 2015

This Jesuit Enrollment Managers (JEM) Conference is comprised of enrollment managers at the 28 Jesuit colleges and universities in the U.S. 
On an annual basis, the enrollment managers from Jesuit institutions meet on a member campus to discuss and share best practices from their respective institutions and to discuss joint collaborative initiatives. Members also communicate throughout the year via active AJCU listserv.

The conference "spun off" c. 1998 from the Conference of Jesuit Admissions Directors (CJAD) because the growing, new model of enrollment management called for more senior staff members with broader portfolios than just admission and/or financial aid. The common problems and issues enrollment managers faced were different and more strategic.

The major attractions for members to come to the annual JEM meeting, which is scheduled in the summer after new freshman classes are mostly set, are numerous. Members are invited to submit topics for the meetings; past agendas have covered such diverse areas as budget, net revenue, personnel, technology, retention, diversity, legal issues, graduate schools, maintaining mission, branding, working with boards, etc.

Quote of the week

“As a product of Catholic schools, continuing my education at a Jesuit institution was a logical part of my journey. The emphasis on using your talents and skills to improve the lives and conditions of others, rather than focusing on personal enrichment, resonated deeply with me. I truly believe that living my life in service of others - both personally and professionally - has allowed me to thrive in unimaginable ways.”
Major General Marcia Anderson, Creighton University '79
