Faculty members can passionately discuss an academic program better than nearly anyone on campus; as such, they make ideal partners in student recruitment. While many faculty are reluctant to grow their recruitment responsibilities, academic leaders are finding themselves in the best position to help bolster faculty support.
During this training, we will help academic leaders fine-tune their vision and expectations for getting faculty more involved in student recruitment. We will provide tools to ensure that you understand what is currently needed in student recruitment, as well as discuss the current admissions landscape. You will leave with a better understanding of how you, as an academic leader, can:
- Build a culture of engagement in admissions success
- Identify and train the best faculty partners
- Balance faculty recruitment work with their other responsibilities
- Create incentives and rewards for faculty participation in recruitment
Who Should Attend
We encourage admissions and academic leaders who are interested in engaging faculty in student recruitment to attend this webinar. This may include:
Note to leaders in admissions and enrollment management: this training is specifically designed for academic leadership. We encourage you to share this training with academic leaders whom you work with on student recruitment.
After participating in this online training, you will be able to more effectively incorporate faculty into student recruitment efforts.
