University-Wide Committees

Hamline’s university-wide committees play a pivotal role in shaping the future of the university. These committees continuously advise the university leadership team and provide input on strategically aligned initiatives. Hamline's most current strategic plan was approved by the board in October 2019. These committees were created in 2017.

These committees are:

  • Enrollment and Student Success Committee
  • University and Strategic Planning Committee
  • University Academic and Student Affairs Committee

Enrollment and Student Success Committee

Committee purpose

  • Identify and recommend strategies and/or procedures that allow Hamline to recruit, enroll, and retain qualified undergraduate and graduate applicants and students. 
  • Review and identify best practices for student enrollment, review enrollment trends and recommend possible innovative practices, review enrollment targets, and all other activities deemed important to enroll those who have the best chance of understanding and appreciating the university's mission. The committee will also be involved in identifying, reviewing, and recommending student success initiatives and activities. The goal is to ensure that enrollment and student success are connected.
