An Executive Forum Discussing the Realities of Recruitment in a Post-Pandemic World.

With a year of recruiting in a pandemic under our belts, enrollment leaders have two key challenges; continuing to incorporate virtual engagement at scale while simultaneously planning for a return to in-person programs. Unfortunately, the “when and how” for the latter is still a moving target.
