2022 Survey of College and University Admissions Directors
The 2022 Inside Higher Ed Survey of College and University Admissions Directors arrives at a time of significant change for admissions, with more change coming soon: The Supreme Court will hear two cases involving affirmative action next month. Standardized testing’s importance in admissions is greatly diminished due to the pandemic (and the potential of the Supreme Court to rule against affirmative action). And a new way of doing admissions, in which students provide a portfolio but don’t actually apply to colleges, is gaining favor among the majority of colleges that are not competitive in traditional admissions.

At the same time, most colleges continue with their efforts to build their classes, going after groups of students they want. And colleges continue to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Inside Higher Ed will host a free webcast, featuring Editors Scott Jaschik and Doug Lederman, to discuss this year's survey of college and university admissions directors. The webcast will explore the survey findings around topics such as affirmative action, legacy admissions preferences, new approaches to admitting students and top goals for the next academic year.

Can't attend the webcast? You should still register -- all registrants will receive a recording of the webcast and a copy of the presentation slides.

This webcast was made possible in part by the financial support of Niche, CampusReel and Motimatic. I understand that by registering for this webcast, my registration information will be shared with Inside Higher Ed and the sponsor for marketing purposes.

Captioning for the deaf and hard of hearing is provided by CaptionAccess for all Inside Higher Ed webcasts. Transcripts available upon request.
