Research studies have shown that one half of all students who begin college fail to realize their goals. This case study of one community college provided a comprehensive examination of best practices developed over several years through strategic enrollment planning. Additionally, this dissertation examined the decision-making processes that brought about changes through interviews and retrieval of archival documents. Both revealed an obvious path that brought about significant organizational change among departments and staff. This study may assist or provide guidance and recommendations for other institutions of higher education seeking to increase student retention.
