Boosting Student Recruitment and Retention with Cares Act Funding

Date of broadcast: Tue, 12/14/21

For institutions to thrive, leaders must figure out ways to attract new students and keep the ones they have enrolled. The Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF) has afforded institutions the ability to focus on student retention and even financial incentives when leveraged wisely. By tapping into funds provided to protect students as well as future-proof the institution’s infrastructure, a number of colleges and universities have successfully leveraged these funds for smart lockers to make a direct and positive impact on campus life.

Learn the new and innovative ways leading institutions are leveraging the CARES Act towards improving student safety, streamlining campus distribution, and enhancing the student and staff experience. An expert panel of your peers from colleges and universities across the country will also discuss how to gain support from university leaders for similar initiatives and how to effectively communicate the rationale behind such decisions to other departments that would have benefited from additional financial backing.

*This program will be of particular interest for leaders in and who interact with decision-makers in housing, auxiliary services, and facilities. The virtual roundtable format will allow attendees to actively engage in the program by making comments and asking questions in real-time.
