Post-Pandemic Enrollment Strategies and Tactics
The past few years have tested the resilience of virtually every industry. For higher education institutions, the tests have come in the form of new educational models, decreased enrollment, greater internal resource constraints and more. It's likely we will continue to see rippling effects from the pandemic for years to come, which means institutions must adapt to thrive. To address these persistent challenges, many institutions have adopted new processes and support from technology partners.

During this webinar, you’ll learn about:

• Case studies from a range of national colleges and universities on post-pandemic marketing and recruiting strategies
• Specific tactics and lessons to reach new markets and promote better enrollment and retention results
• How institutions are adopting technology to maximize financial and student success on campus
