Presented by Andrea Gilbert, Vice President at Ruffalo Noel Levitz

Recent demographic changes have created an enrollment crunch for colleges and universities, as more campuses compete for fewer students who do not fit the mold of the “traditional” undergraduate. Given a relatively flat outlook for high school graduates over the next decade, more and more schools are expanding into online, graduate, and adult populations.

Save your spot to explore the latest best practices in successful recruitment marketing strategies, including:

  • Targeting the right students by leveraging big data and modeling to predict student behaviors and interest,
  • Engaging prospective adult, online, and graduate students with personalized multichannel outreach, and
  • Delivering data-driven approaches that drive adult, online and graduate enrollments
