7 Ways to Effectively Engage Faculty in the Recruitment Process 26 February 2009 Online webinar Faculty often underestimate their influence in the college selection process for prospective students and their families. In fact, they are the most significant institutional influencer for most students. The keys to engaging faculty in student recruitment include: (1) increasing their understanding of the power of their interactions with potential students, (2) ensuring selected strategies allow them to experience success, focus the use of their valuable time, and be in the realm of their comfort zone—aligned with their expertise and knowledge of their discipline (3) recognizing them for their contributions to the recruitment effort, (4) providing feedback regarding the impact of their efforts, and (5) not overusing the same faculty over and over again. This webinar will focus on the most productive strategies for faculty to engage in as well as the process for assuring their involvement. Webinar participants will learn how to effectively engage faculty and what strategies produce the best results.
