Bringing Order to Volatility
UMUC began to experience unprecedented enrollment volatility and turned to analytics to help. The analytics team worked closely with key stakeholders to ensure the university stayed on a path to financial sustainability. According to UMUC President Javier Miyares, "it was a perfect storm in all of adult higher education. As this new normal came more clearly into focus—a mature market, increasing competition, rising costs, declining state support and further cuts to education spending in the military and corporate sectors, I looked to analytics to help guide UMUC along the pathway of stability and growth."
