Description:
What are the national trends in selecting students for college, and what will it change about how students are chosen for admission at Colorado State, and around the country? This session will explain the reasons a holistic approach allows for better selection of a more diverse group of students through the use of essays and other narrative information, as well as considering the local context of the student's opportunities. Attendees of this session can also participate in a subsequent session that simulates the actual selection process.
Goals and Target Audience:
The goal of this session is to demonstrate how non-traditional factors are helping universities and departments make better decisions with the use of more than grades and test scores. Ideally, attendees will better understand CSU's process for selecting students, as well as gaining ideas they might apply in their own departmental admissions processes. While this session will hopefully be accessible to any attendee, the targeted audience is primarily campus and departmental leaders with a passion for finding ways to be inclusive of a diverse student body.
