The American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers (AACRAO), in partnership with Hobsons, released a new report on November 7, 2016 that finds institutions are embracing dual enrollment as a strategic enrollment initiative.
The goals of this survey were to capture a current snapshot of dual enrollment (DE) course and program practices at institutions in the United States and determine if and how DE plays a role in the strategic enrollment management efforts of the institution.
The new report, “Dual Enrollment in the Context of Strategic Enrollment Management,” explores the institution-level practices of dual enrollment in the context of strategic enrollment management.
If you take away the honor roll, test scores, and athletic trophies, are there other ways to describe student success in high school and provide college admission offices with a more holistic view of their applicants?
As part of our commitment to success, Hobsons regularly seeks feedback from members through our User Experience Research Panels.
Location, location, location. We all know it matters when making investments in housing. But what about location’s effect on education? If a student lives in a more affluent neighborhood, he or she may receive a better-quality education. Disparities from one neighborhood to another can range from differences in course offerings, funding, and the number of highly skilled teachers. Neighborhoods with lower income residents can have a difficult time attracting highly skilled teachers.
Today we launch Episode 7 of Upgraded by Hobsons, a free monthly podcast accessible through iTunes.
