Surveys

Oct. 1, 2015 -- Inside Higher Ed's 2015 Survey of College and University Admissions Directors examined the views of enrollment officials on topics such as meddling from higher-ups, the pressure to build a class, affirmative action, debt, out-of-state recruiting, viewing applicants' disciplinary records and more.

Like Inside Higher Ed's other surveys, this study was conducted in conjunction with researchers from Gallup.

Inside Higher Ed regularly surveys key higher ed professionals on a range of topics.

On Thursday, Oct. 15, Inside Higher Ed presented a free webinar to discuss the results of the survey. A copy of the webinar can be viewed here. 

The Inside Higher Ed survey of admissions directors was made possible in part by advertising from ELS Educational Services, Hobsons, Jenzabar and Liaison International.
