How much does social media really matter when recruiting prospective undergraduates? An open question, perhaps, but colleges and universities intuitively know social media recruiting strategies are increasing in importance every year.

We have a winner! The South Florida Bulls take the NCAA title! The eleventh seed out of the Stockton region won the tournament by dominating their region. Surprising? Only if you are focused on basketball. We’re focused on student success.

We have a winner! The Minnesota Golden Gophers take the NCAA title! The fifth seed out of the south region won the tournament by knocking out number one seeded North Carolina along the way. Surprising? Only if you are focused on basketball. We’re focused on student success.
Let’s make what could be a generous assumption about your college or university: you’ve done all the hard work. You’ve created a leadership structure and an institutional culture that is ready to collaboratively tackle student success. Your institution knows itself and is ready to act. Now what?
Popular mythology holds that the iconic supertanker is difficult to turn. In fact, these ships are reversible: a fully-loaded tanker may require up to 15 miles and more than 30 minutes to execute a 180-degree turn. Like our beloved colleges and universities, supertankers do an important job well. In uncertain times, continuity and steadfastness are just as important as change and innovation.
On balance, 2016 marked a year of maturation for higher education. More institutions turned to technology to solve problems both old and new. All things “learning” attracted much of this attention, from the evolution of the learning management system (LMS) market to re-imagined market niches like learning relationship management (LRM) and learning analytics. Online and continuing education programs tested new programs and marketing campaigns to drive demand amid slowing growth.
We’re all grateful that Thanksgiving is here, if only because we can turn from one heated discussion that divides America to another equally controversial but seemingly less consequential dinner table topic. Let’s talk NCAA College Football Playoff Rankings.
At your Thanksgiving table, someone—brother or sister, aunt or uncle, grandma or grandpa—will have a vehement opinion about how well the playoff rankings represent, or do not represent, the true competitive position of each team. You know how the argument goes: some conferences are stronger than others, some team schedules are tougher, and some teams are untested or underrated.

On October 21-23, Eduventures hosted higher education leaders from across the country for a three-day discussion on improving the student lifecycle. Our line-up of expert keynotes represented a diverse mix of perspectives shaped by data, research, and unique experiences serving both the traditional and adult student markets—all infused with a healthy dose of the latest technologies.
It’s that time of year again. With new classes safely on campus, enrollment managers now turn to deconstructing the prior year’s recruitment cycle. They review their efforts and fine tune their outreach, communications, and financial aid strategy for the next cycle. They pore over data in an effort to understand the mercurial 18-year-old mind and the equally mercurial undergraduate college enrollment decision.
For the last decade, millennial students have captured the attention of higher education. We’ve studied them, learned about their perspectives on the world, and sought to serve them well through our educational system. Now the stream of millennial-minded students is maturing; they are no longer our traditional-aged prospects. They are currently enrolled as undergraduates. They are our young alumni. They are becoming graduate students. They are our adult non-traditional students. That means it’s time to focus on the next generation.
