Connecting Holistic Admissions, Diversity & Student Success
Graduate programs are increasingly adopting holistic admissions as a way to clearly see applicant potential, fairly admit qualified students, and achieve diversity goals. But there’s more to holistic admissions than just considering everything an applicant can bring to a program. In this session, learn about the full breadth of practices that promote fairness and mitigate bias, as well as strategies that can help you achieve your enrollment goals.
Recruitment Strategies to Address Today’s Challenges
Are you concerned that you don’t have enough qualified and diverse prospects? Are COVID-19, funding, and competition on your mind? In this session, you’ll get information about the current state of graduate enrollment in the U.S. and some predictions for the year ahead. You’ll also learn about recruitment strategies and tools that have worked for our experts in their own experiences in academia.
Strategies to Promote the Success of Every Student
Program completion is a top concern for many graduate programs. Yet despite pouring over applications and doing your best to predict who will succeed, students drop out or take too long to complete, hurting the students as well as your program’s resources and reputation. In this presentation, you’ll learn numerous ways you can strategically and intentionally support students as they strive to meet the expectations of your program, address non-academic matters, and navigate their own feelings of self-doubt and wanting to belong.
Understanding Application Criteria for More Informed Decisions
The reality of graduate admissions is that programs need to make quick decisions about complete strangers based on limited information. But is there a way to improve your decision making? In this session, you’ll learn about the purpose and benefits of various components of the application packet, as well as strategies for mitigating drawbacks of each component to create a holistic, equitable process that works for your program.
