The new president of the University of Vermont wants to reduce the number of undergraduate students on the Burlington campus and make the school harder to get in to for out-of-state applicants, as part of a plan to enhance the quality and affordability of the school. But the increased selectivity would not come at the expense of Vermont students. To help accomplish the goal, UVM is allocating up to $500,000 in surplus funds for beefing up efforts to meet the new goals in enrollment management. The money will pay for enhanced student recruitment efforts via direct mail and by personal visits of admissions officers to high schools and college fairs, said Chris Lucier, the university’s vice president for enrollment management.
