The World of Admissions: An Industry, the Audience, and Our Mission

Monday | July 20 | 2015 | 7:00 pm - 8:00 PM

In addition to meeting admissions goals and objectives, your challenge as an admissions professional is to select candidates who be a good fit for your program AND be engaged students, employable prospects, and contributing alumni. Understanding the student lifecycle is the first step to selecting the right candidates, and your job will be easier if stakeholders at all stages of the student lifecycle collaborate throughout the selection process. This session will provide an overview of the admissions cycle, including the various challenges and opportunities that exist within each phase; discuss the different stakeholders involved throughout the student lifecycle, and how to best leverage and collaborate with them; and explore how all of this influences your underlying goals in admissions.
