Enrollment Management Professionals Caucus

The Enrollment Management Professionals Caucus (EMPC) is for faculty and staff who work with students at the intersection of high school and higher education and/or help to manage enrollment at colleges and universities. This would include those who work in Admissions, Financial Aid, the Registrar, and College Counseling, among other departments. We also invite colleagues who work in other departments at colleges and universities and have an interest in Enrollment Management, particularly through the lens of how their work coincides with Enrollment Management.

We seek to do the following:
1. Network at NCORE.
2. Discuss how race shapes the work that we do.
3. Share experiences as professionals and best practices for working with students of color and other marginalized students as they navigate the journey to and through higher education.
