The Nuts and Bolts of Customer Service (A/R)

The paradigm has shifted and the customer's voice will be heard - so we better be listening! The expectations of students, parents and faculty alike are on the rise. From making sure policies and procedures include a "value added" approach to not letting our moods take control, this session will offer an introduction to customer service concepts and their applications to higher education. Admissions Officers spend time and money filling seats, and Registrars do the same keeping them that way – and a thoughtful approach to quality customer service helps everyone with that goal!

A 4-D Communication Plan to Boost Admissions Goals (A)

We shall develop in this course a cyclical 4-Dimensional communications plan: spanning the social, cultural, academic, and outcomes integration spaces with no end zone. The plan capitalizes on traditional techniques of engaging admitted students as well as innovative multimedia approaches to connecting with applicants and prospects in the enrollment pipeline. We shall talk about showcasing student life and other meaningful campus engagements by employing a variety of online and hybridized interaction platforms; from customized Apps to social media weblogs involving current students, alumni, faculty and administration. The strategy is to offer multimedia snapshots of the social, academic, (where available) athletics and wellness transitions that a new student can look forward to experiencing on campus. We will examine some front-line applications for constructing a virtual community. We shall round up with a corpus of techniques for boosting Admissions goals on a fitted budget.
