Guiding the Way to Inclusion (GWI) is designed for admission and enrollment professionals who recruit, counsel and/or advise traditionally underrepresented students.
The educational landscape is changing and the practice of recruiting underrepresented students is more complex than ever. Conversations are also changing. Families of prospective students are questioning the "value and cost" of a higher education. Technology is driving the student search, application submission and review process. Changing population projections and the special needs of targeted students are influencing where you can recruit. Understanding data and knowing where to locate useful data is critical to your success. Colleges are now incorporating systematic research into strategic outreach plans to yield a stronger return on their investment in recruitment strategies.
Regardless of whether your office is seeking to take a new direction with its multicultural recruitment efforts-or simply looking for cutting edge trends and resources- Guiding the Way to Inclusion promises to offer a challenging and engaging professional development opportunity. All presentations are research-based, and attendees will return back to their institutions with an assortment of new ideas and strategies for the 2013-2014 recruitment cycle.
