About the Series: 

In this special 4-part series, you’ll get a crash course on what Collective Enrollment is, why it matters for both enrollment and marketing professionals, and how to adopt Collective Enrollment strategies into your enrollment marketing mix.

We’ll explore what a world without Facebook and the College Board might mean for new student acquisition, hear the founding story of ZeeMee, and learn from current high school students about how they want to and don’t want to be recruited by institutions.
