College Knowledge: Enrollment Management and Student Services

In order to orient new employees to the College and help all employees stay abreast of organizational changes and initiatives, we have revived and redesigned college on-boarding meetings to feature twice-yearly conversations with each of the College’s divisions. This month we feature Enrollment Management and Student Services. Come learn about programs and initiatives for attracting, enrolling and supporting students and discuss how we all can partner to serve our students effectively.
