Booklets

With the traditional-age college population flattening if not shrinking in many parts of the U.S., colleges and universities are under greater pressure than ever before to develop new and different approaches to attracting students. "Strategies for Recruiting Students" is a collection of Inside Higher Ed articles and essays -- in print-on-demand format -- about some of the approaches institutions are taking, and some of the challenges they are facing.

Download the booklet here.

This booklet is part of a series of such compilations that Inside Higher Ed is publishing on a range of topics.

On Tuesday, July 8, Editors Scott Jaschik and Doug Lederman led a webinar about some of the issues discussed in the booklet. To view the webinar, click here.

This booklet was made possible in part through advertising support from Sparkroom.
