Summer Recommended Reading

The Admission Leadership Council (ALC) has some reading suggestions to enhance your professional development this season.  

ROI & Measurables

How much of your planning time is devoted to defining what a successful outcome of any new (or existing) initiative will be? How will you know that your efforts are worthwhile?

Equity in Independent Schools

We are more sensitive and aware of inequities in independent schools today, but we are not perfect -- we can all do better.

Crafting a Mission-Oriented Admission Model

The admission department has a duty to the prospective student to determine whether he or she will be best served in our school. Ultimately, a mission-oriented admission model must answer “yes” to whether the mission will best serve the prospective student and whether he or she will embrace this offering and reciprocate.

Leadership, Admission, and the Power of Narrative

Using the distinct “stories” of our institutions, and by adopting a shared vocabulary, we can help our colleagues to envision and understand their roles within the narrative arch.

No longer just admission

Like many others in our sector I am continually frustrated by the misconception that enrollment professionals only work hard a couple of months a year, and institutional success in this area depends solely on the efforts of the admission office.

The Political Arena of Enrollment Management

Developing political will and skill is essential for us to influence how limited resources are acquired and utilized. The CERPP certificate program allowed us to dig a little deeper into how we can all develop political clout.

We're all in this together: embracing a new understanding of enrollment management

Not only have I deepened my understanding of this role, but now I must impart it on the rest of the community, where largely they have been accustomed to a more limited understanding of "admission" versus the more expansive "enrollment management."

Even when it's over...it isn't over.

Even as you're finishing phase 1 of your admission decision-making process, phases 2 and 3 are underway...and this time of year often involves a good deal of data gathering and analysis.

April – in like a lion, out like a…well, it depends.

Wherever you are in the process right now, please know that many of us are thinking about similar things. I’m hoping that you will be able to relate to at least a few of these scenarios and have a chuckle.
