  • Creating a Data-Rich Admission Organization

    With shrinking budgets and shrinking student populations, college admission professionals have had to learn to work smarter, not harder. One of the best ways to do this is to adopt a data-informed recruitment strategy. But, most admission offices are not staffed with statistical analysts! In fact, most admission professionals were hired for their interpersonal skills rather than their data analysis skills. Bridging that gap is the topic of NACAC's latest white paper. The research explores the current skill gaps amongst college admission staff and how their leaders are addressing those gaps.

  • College Admission Cases Before the Supreme Court

    In January 2022, the United States Supreme Court announced that it would accelerate two pending cases involving race-conscious admission at Harvard University and the University of North Carolina.

Join us for a webinar that will explore the legal backdrop against which these cases will be heard and discuss the implications of the case for our stakeholders.

In this session, we’ll share the latest research and marketing solutions that can help you deliver the right message to the right student at the right time on the right channel—ensuring you bring your best-fit students from prospect to enrolled.
