An innovative approach to recruiting and admissions in higher education

Higher education institutions are experiencing growing concerns about declining enrollment accelerated by the economic effects of COVID-19. As health concerns and restrictions on gathering sizes and travel limit traditional outreach, administrators continue to emphasise the need to be flexible and cost effective, yet engaging, when it comes to recruiting. In this new environment, outreach to prospective students requires taking an innovative approach and using digital platforms to host virtual tours, informational fairs, and student panels. Workday includes built-in functionality to help current users create, manage, and track these virtual events.
