Attracting an Activist Generation

With the current political climate and #MeToo movement helping women’s colleges experience record entering classes, enrollment coaches are reporting that more and more students are asking questions about the political culture of our respective institutions.

Reported by Inside Higher Ed, while many institutions have historically tried to remain neutral and inclusive for students of all political slants, more and more students are interested in finding a college culture and politics they will feel comfortable being a part of.

The takeaway? With more students thinking deeply about activism and living missional lives, how can we spotlight our respective institution’s missional story?

May you continue to fight the good enrollment growth fight at your institution today, and we’ll see you again tomorrow.
