REIS streamlines processes for students from prospect to graduate admissions stages, including Rutgers Future Scholars (RFS) and other pre-college programs, through technological innovation.
REIS coordinates strategic planing efforts for enrollment management (e.g., Strategic Enrollment Management or SEM plan). In consultation with academic deans and other stakeholders, REIS creates various projections/predictive models and recommends enrollment goals (new, total, undergraduate, graduate, academic profile, diversity, scholarships, residency mix, etc.) and strategies.
REIS conducts and assesses studies to evaluate/incorporate new measures\evaluations in EM areas (e.g., evaluations for Rutgers Future Scholars; SAT-Writing for admissions), including surveys/focus groups, using advanced statistical methods.
Grant Application Support: REIS also assists with grant applications and program reporting requirements. Since 2015, REIS staff contributed to approximately $2 million dollars in funding secured for pre-college programming.
REIS utilizes a state-of-the-art application development architecture built around the Microsoft .NET framework. From multi-tiered server and database regions, to a managed source code repository, REIS developers enjoy the benefits of structured design and code management. This leads to increased efficiency and productivity as well as enhanced idea sharing and collaboration.
REIS currently supports over 30 university-wide applications and many others specific to Enrollment Management. Some examples of applications maintained by REIS include:
The REIS Systems Administration (SA) team hosts and supports a number of critical services, university-wide applications and websites including REIS system services, ImageNow, and providing system support for Enrollment Management staff. The REIS SA team also handles the complete hosting and account management for the Office of Financial Aid and Admissions (Undergraduate and Graduate) document imaging servers, providing workflow and repository services for these respective offices. In addition, the SA team is responsible for office-wide security, GLBA compliance, business continuity, backup, and disaster recovery procedures.
In addition to research, application development, and database/system administration, REIS also provides several mechanisms for aiding in communications and outreach. The Customer Relationship Manager (CRM) system allows easy and flexible setup of both email and paper-based mailing campaigns. From read detection logic in messages, link click tracking, and page view metrics, REIS can track the progress and effectiveness of a communications or marketing outreach program down to the individual student..
