Your Advice Needed on Student Outreach and Recruitment

The Admissions Office and Student Affairs is seeking input on new student outreach and recruitment efforts. GRCC staff and faculty who are parents/guardians of high school seniors or college freshmen are invited to a lunch on Friday, July 1, 2011, from 11:30 AM to 1:30 PM to discuss ways in which GRCC can effectively communicate with and recruit high school students.

If you’re interested in participating or would like more information, please contact Sandy Gregory in the Admissions Office at

  1. I would like to attend the luncheon, but will be out of town.
    1. Hire outreach individuals to speak at the H.Schools, Jr. High’s, and homes, and then sign the student up for courses on the spot, if possible. Access to applying for these programs is typically the problem for most parents. As they don’t know how, or are too busy with other children and responsibilities. This would be an excellent part-time job. It could be partially commissioned or bonus based. This would be a win-win for the student education, and Michigan job economy.
    2. Incentives for schools that participate in the program is another idea. Ensuring the schools participation is a must. However, you do have those reluctant administrators who with some incentives, may come around.
    I had a student that was a 11th grader in the BA16 Course, Byron Center, and he was actually one of the best student in the class. He is almost ready to become an entrepreneur. Incentive could come in the form of contests, sponsoring free field trips for educational activities, purchasing education-upgrades by adding & managing unique learning programs and technology. I am sure you could come up with more.
