Achieving an optimum enrollment mix that takes into consideration the diversity of students who apply to and enroll at a particular college is paramount to student and institutional success. Recruiting and Retaining a Diverse Student Body is an essential resource for deepening readers’ expertise into a range of strategic and operational matters that inform, influence, and yield the recruitment and retention of diverse student bodies. The chapters contain pinpointed and detailed advice for giving specific student populations the tools and resources they need to succeed. Also included is a holistic overview of the importance of non-cognitive variables in student admission as well as advice for reaching the decision making community that surrounds and influences all students. By illuminating the challenges that a particular population faces in the path to higher education and offering advice to administrators on how to avoid those obstructions, this book can be used to create a roadmap to create a richer learning environment on campus through diversity and inclusion.
