(FREE!) Webinar: Mobilizing for Fall: A Quick-to-Implement Retention Plan

April 9, 2020

COVID-19 has created a “new normal” that is affecting people nationwide in one way or another. For those in community college marketing, the focus has been on managing communications through various phases of the pandemic and helping students as they move to online instruction. Now, it’s time to mobilize for fall enrollment with a focus on retention.

This webinar provides a quick-to-implement retention plan with a two-pronged approach that starts with helping students adapt to online instruction by providing support services and resources with tips for staying healthy, staying in school and finishing the semester. The next part of the plan focuses on using current student data to develop communication strategies for promoting fall enrollment and encouraging students to register for classes before heading into summer break.

Both steps of this retention plan employ low-cost, easy-to-implement tactics that can be put in place within a short period of time. Included will be case studies and online guides already being implemented at various community colleges, including Orange Coast College (California), St. Charles Community College (Missouri), Chabot-Las Positas Community College District (California) and Peninsula College (Washington). 

You'll still need to register for this webinar,
but it's offered FREE of charge.
