Abstract

Summer administrators are feverishly tasked with developing new and innovative strategies to increase student enrollment. Competing priorities have influenced the increase in online course offerings and, in turn, the need for greater campus utilization. With numerous constraints around college campuses during the summer, there is a need to further stimulate buy-in to create change. This article examines a case study of an initiative spearheaded by the Summer START program at North Carolina State University that achieved this through increased student engagement. The creation of the certificate took the collaboration of numerous offices, and it increased student support programming by 400% during the summer of 2014.
