The university recently revised its Global Engagement strategy, which includes a goal to coordinate our graduate level international student recruitment efforts.
To address this goal, a committee of representatives from Global Engagement, Enrollment Management and Marketing and from each college's Graduate Admission Office convened to discuss opportunities to collaborate and to develop a strategic plan.
The committee met several times throughout the spring and summer, and in September, finalized the first graduate level international student recruitment plan. The plan was reviewed and supported by both the Globalization Task Force (GTF) and by our Provost and implementation plans will begin in early 2017.
The first phases of the plan will include some targeted marketing and advertising campaigns to build more awareness in countries that are likely to be the best fit for our graduate programs. We are excited to launch this new initiative and recruit more graduate international students to DePaul.
