That’s Not My Job: Admission’s Influence in Creating Inclusive School Communities

August 7, 2019

Douglas Leek, Director of Admission and Enrollment Management, The Northwest School, WA, Eric Barber, Director of Enrollment Management, Crossroads School for Arts and Sciences, CA & Kathy Mitchell O’Neal, Director of Enrollment Management, University Prep, WA The role of admission directors used to focus exclusively on the admission of students with little regard to how they are engaged once they have matriculated to the community. The role of the admission/enrollment director has now expanded to include the marketing, admission, retention, and community development of the institution. As schools strive to move from simply being models of diversity to institutions that are equitable and inclusive, it is the responsibility of the admission/enrollment director to lead the charge as a vocal and creative partner within his/her institution, ensuring students and families are welcomed, engaged, and supported. This presentation provides useful and innovative information and resources for working towards transforming your institution into an inclusive community.
