… And many opportunities to help in recruiting

Jen Jones of Admissions, leading the enrollment initiative, wants members of the University community to know there are numerous ways individuals can aid the recruitment drive in the coming months:

· Volunteer to make calls to students. Every Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday night in Admissions from 5 to 7 p.m. <a href="Email jonesj@uwgb.edu to participate. No prior knowledge necessary… “we will give you everything you need to make calls”;
· Academic departments will be asked this week how they can connect with admitted students who are interested in their programs. There are many ways to help. One area has already committed to gather and make calls together; another area is thinking of designating a smaller number of faculty to email and/or call interested students;
· To those already planning to go into high school or college classrooms to guest lecture, teach, or give a presentation, Jones says, “Please let me know and I can provide you with promotional materials and/or talking points.”
· Similarly, Jones adds, if you’re willing and interested in going into high school classrooms to guest lecture on a subject related to high-school curriculum, she can help you with coordinating that opportunity;
· Engage student organizations that are allied with academic departments to help with any of the above outreach to prospective students;
· When you see tour groups in the hallway, feel free to welcome those families and introduce yourself. (Where are you from? Know what you might like to study?) Your interaction is welcomed!;
· Reach out to the Admissions Office if you want to learn more about recruitment/enrollment. “We are happy to come to your team meetings or meet individually with anyone interested in learning more and helping with recruitment,” Jones says, adding, “And, if you’re bringing groups of potential college students to campus for an event, let Admissions know.”
