    Thinking Differently: Leading the Way with Student Care

    CAEL & CAP Webinar on June 10, 2015 from 1:00 - 2:00 p.m. Central Time

    The need for clear recruitment communications has been well explored at most institutions, but what happens to all that effort once a student reaches the point of enrolling? As enrollment growth becomes even more critical, it is shocking that institutions have not focused more intentionally on the other element of enrollment - retention.

    This webinar will set the stage for further discussion on your campus regarding the issue of student care over the lifecycle of the student. Focusing on creating a more seamless process for communication and support throughout the student lifecycle and keeping the student purposefully engaged throughout their experience. Starting with front-end recruitment communications and continuing on to explore continuous care strategies for currently enrolled students, this session is sure to leave you thinking about student care in an entirely different way.

    Participants in this webinar will:

    • Review the benefits of a student care approach to retention
    • Explore the dramatic differences between recruitment process and retention process for most colleges and universities
    • Evaluate a suggested student care lifecycle map that can be used to lead the discussion on your campus
    • Consider sample communications that reinforce the student’s decision to enroll, build relationships by means of multiple touch-points, and celebrate success throughout the student lifecycle

    The webinar is $185 for CAEL/CAP members and $345 for non-members. Click here to learn more about becoming a CAEL member. Click here to learn more about CAP membership.
