Noel Levitz conferences are a must-attend – always informative, great for networking and chock full of ideas to expand our perspectives on how to improve higher ed. I’m thrilled to be a part of the National Conference on Student Recruitment, Marketing, and Retention, not just as an attendee, but also as a presenter.

At next week’s conference in Dallas, Karrie D. Mitchell, Ph.D, Assistant Vice Chancellor for Student Development at Enrollment Rx client Pima Community College, and I will be discussing how to use CRM technology to automate prospective student engagement and recruitment.

Karrie will share enrollment management best practices based on her hands-on experience of using constituent relationship management (CRM) technology to boost enrollments, improve engagement and track student progress through the enrollment funnel. Karrie and I presented on a similar topic at the American Association of Community College (AACC) conference in April. Our session was full with a lot of great feedback about the topic. Karrie provided wonderful real-life examples of how a CRM has transformed their processes and is a key tool that will help drive to meet the institution's short and long term strategic enrollment plan.

During the session – which is part of the “Improving the Effectiveness of Student Recruitment and Marketing” track – we will cover hot topics that are top of mind for many higher education institutions right now, including:

  • How to create successful communication campaigns to better engage students;
  • How to maximize your existing (and probably limited!) resources;
  • How to deliver personalized recruitment messages;
  • How to improve data use to collect, manage and measure student outcomes in the enrollment process; and
  • When to rethink existing business processes… and when to stick with what you’re already doing well.
