How the Pandemic Changed Admission Practices in 2020 and Beyond

When COVID-19 emerged, higher education recruitment practices were turned upside-down. The pipeline was disrupted at all stages, from inquiry to enrollment. Admission and enrollment leaders at institutions of all sizes scrambled to develop new strategies as lockdowns and social distancing demanded a shift away from in-person activities. During the fall of 2020, Hobsons partnered with Hanover Research to survey a nationally representative sample of 250 admission and enrollment professionals in undergraduate education about enrollment practices during COVID-19 and long-term strategies for the future.

In this webinar recording, Melissa Meyer, Director of Integrated Marketing for Intersect, walks us through the key findings of the newly released survey and provides actionable insights to combat the unexpected turn of events.

Additionally, Melissa will discuss responses to questions asked in the survey such as:

  • How has recruitment changed in the 2020-21 school year?
  • Which recruitment strategies are short-term, and which are long-term?
  • How has the landscape of admission changed post COVID-19?
  • How are institutions thinking about the ripple effect of COVID-19 on future incoming classes?
