Workshop / School of Graduate Studies

Potential graduate students search for graduate programs much differently than potential undergraduates, that means different recruitment strategies are needed to attract them to USU. Because of differences in search habits along with the diversity of program goals and operations, most of those efforts must occur at the department level.

This workshop will discuss how to create outstanding faculty profiles to improve student recruitment.
