As more and more institutions recognize the direct correlation between alumni engagement and giving, they seek to offer greater volunteer opportunities for a diverse alumni audience. Alumni-in-admissions programs not only educate proud alumni about what’s going on at your institution, but also help create a stronger bond between your university and the segment of your alumni population with a propensity to give.

Join us for a comprehensive look at Brown University's alumni interviewing program, one of the oldest, most successful programs in the country. Designed for both advancement and admissions audiences, this webcast will cover:

* Tips for recruiting volunteers who will represent your institution with integrity
* How to train your volunteers on the admissions applicant interview and informational interview process
* Troubleshooting ideas for when a prospective student recommended by your alumni interviewer is denied admission
* Methods for evaluating your program
* Admissions and alumni/advancement partnership considerations


Directors and assistant/associate directors of alumni relations as well as admissions directors will benefit from the material in this program. Whether you have open admission or selective admission, the principles of Brown's alumni interviewing program can be scaled to meet the needs of your institution.
