If you missed NWSA’s Chair and Director meeting in Chicago earlier this month you can still hear the valuable information Danielle DeMuth shared about growing enrollments in our webinar on Thursday, April 27 at 3 PM Eastern.
Here’s what meeting participants had to say about the session:
It was refreshing to receive practical, tangible suggestions and strategies to present to my colleagues and administration. This was my favorite session.
This was fantastic. I really appreciate the handout Danielle provided, and plan to use this to help structure the goals of my WGS committee next academic year.
This was an excellent session. Danielle offered concrete suggestions as did many of the others around the table.
Growing WGSS Enrollments, Danielle DeMuth, Grand Valley State University
Enrollment growth in WGS is an important goal, particularly when there is pressure to justify gaining or even maintaining meager resources. Participants will share successful strategies in the context of limited resources (that have led to greater resources); discuss program specific goals, pressures, and limitations; and develop context-specific strategies.
