Zoe Edelen Hare, Assistant Director of Admission, Catlin Gabel School (OR) Sara Nordhoff, Director of Enrollment Management, Catlin Gabel School (OR) Mary Braun, Senior Associate Director of Admission, Catlin Gabel School (OR) How can enrollment management practices help create an inclusive campus, beginning with every person who walks through the door? The intersection of enrollment management and inclusivity is an important one that needs to weave its way through all of our interactions with families, from new prospects to alums. Providing prospective families with access to information, opportunities to share who they are, and implementing language that reflects their unique identities are some of the first steps. This may seem like a huge endeavor, but small tweaks can be made -- even this fall! Learn how to help applicant families feel included from the moment they enter campus to their potential enrollment and matching with a host family. Learn about the changes Catlin Gabel School has made in the past few years as well as those being considered for the future.
