Reimagining virtual employer engagement: three emerging practices from career services and employer recruiting leaders
As colleges and universities continue to gear up for the new academic year, career services leaders are grappling with how to connect students and employer partners in a virtual environment. To learn more about what virtual engagement will look like this fall, EAB hosted a webinar in late July 2020 with leaders in the career services and campus recruiting spaces to discuss the future of virtual employer engagement.
Many underrepresented minority students are inadequately prepared for higher education by high school graduation. This preparedness gap, which is greatly influenced by social inequities and other barriers, creates a pipeline problem for selective colleges and universities to increase underrepresented minority (URM) student enrollment. Due to this pipeline problem there is a shortage of qualified URM candidates for selective institutions.
EAB framed its recent listening tour of university Vice Chancellors across the United Kingdom and Ireland around the answers to the following questions: how has a global pandemic irreversibly altered higher education, and where should the sector go from here. The key takeaways are summarised in this interactive infographic in terms of responsibilities to staff and students, the larger community, and the institution.
EAB conducted a survey of academic and IT leaders in December 2020 to assess the perceived impact of existing and new academic technologies on academic continuity, identify trends in tech purchasing, and gauge satisfaction with different vendor products. Discover the results and emerging trends in this interactive infographic.
Declines in enrollment and revenues, in some cases exacerbated by COVID-19 and in others a perennial issue, have forced many colleges and universities to take a hard look at their academic cost structure. While there is no single right way to make these difficult decisions, there are a few common mistakes that should be avoided if you decide to undertake such a process.
