Campaign Design Worksheet SAMPLE Define a Target Student Population My target student population and rationale for why they require this additional attention: Parameters I will use to create an SSC work list: Mid-career Management majors with borderline GPAs but high risk predictions. They need help to succeed and have time to make significant changes but might fly under the radar.  College/School: Business  Major: Management  Credits Earned: 30 - 60  Cumulative GPA: 2.00 - 2.70 Objectives: This targeted advising campaign will… 1. Contact all identified students at least three times to encourage them to initiate an advising session 2. Schedule an individual advising session with at least 75 percent of  Risk: High Risk  Term Enrollment: Currently Enrolled identified students 3. Connect 50 percent of students with the tutoring center to work on their academic standing Total number of students identified: 45 4. Reduce these students’ risk of stopping out Plan Your Outreach Strategy Action Steps These Students Need to Take:  Seek out academic support services, such as tutoring and study habit workshops  Select and register for courses that match their strengths and in which they have a higher likelihood of success My Communication Plan: Method Email Phone Advising Session My Follow Up Steps: Timing/Frequency Communication Objective and Resources Two times, one week apart during the first half of the semester First: notification of risk status, encourage to make appointment; second: more urgent encouragement, suggest tutoring center before midterms Once in the week after email #2 Discuss resources, why students are at-risk, try to schedule an in-person appointment Once as early in the semester as possible Walk students through notifications, discuss why they are at-risk, maybe even discuss major choice, discuss study habits and time management, plan coursework for next semester  Check with tutoring center to see which students have made appointments  Analyze student risk information one and two semesters after campaign Evaluate Your Campaign Success Metrics and Target Outcomes: Metric Target Percent of population contacted 100% Number of students that complete in-person advising sessions 34 Number of students that make appointments with the tutoring center 23 Number of students that improve their risk level by the end of the following semester 25 ©2014 The Advisory Board Company • eab.com 3 Actual Outcome

Using Interview Results To Step 7: Designate persona types Construct Personas Jake Parker (Event Cataloger) Jake is a 23-year-old senior in college and is part of the fraternity Sigma Sigma Lambda. He lives with 16 frat brothers in the frat house, and true to reputation, he parties hard on the weekends. However, he mostly focuses on school work and his geography classes (his major) during the week to try and maintain reasonable grades. His social life revolves around parties, meeting new people as well as enjoying the camaraderie of his frat brothers. He was going out with a girl named Mindy for a while but broke up with her a few months ago. Now he’s playing the field. Jake is less computer savvy than many people his age since learning how to use computers was never a high priority for him. He could always find something he’d rather be doing, and for that matter, he usually had people that could help him, so he knows how to use the basics of the operating system, how to browse the Internet, and how to send email, but not too much more. He uses a computer in the common area of the frat house he doesn’t own one himself. His parents gave Jake a digital camera for his birthday but he doesn’t use it much. Shooting pictures of high-quality isn’t too important to him. He sometimes takes the camera along if he is going on an extended outing such as a ski trip, but mostly he just carries a recent-model camera phone. He’s had his current camera phone for about a month and his previous model for about 6 months. He has saved over 500 pictures from them. He finds himself snapping pictures of his friends in “compromising situations” so that he can give them friendly hassles later on. He always takes a few pictures of the fun times with his buddies when he goes to bars, clubs and to parties. He forgets to download the pictures to the computer until his camera gets full every week or two. Then he muddles through downloading. He likes to get pictures posted to the private area of the server for his frat so he can show how much fun he’s having. Jake rarely looks back on photos that are much more than a month old, but he figures he’ll take his photos with him on a CD when he leaves university so he can remember the good times. Goals: • To post his pictures on the Internet so he can increase camaraderie with his new friends, fraternity brothers and social contacts. • To print his pictures as a source of joking and fun for use with his frat brothers who live in his house. CS 321 • To limit access to certain pictures for viewing only by his fraternity brothers. Lesson Six • To easily find more appropriate photos for very occasional emailing to his more casual friends and family. Personas Page 12
