DePaul's Center for Access and Attainment hosted Catholic higher education institutions from across the nation for a first-ever symposium titled ''Balancing Market and Mission: Enrollment Management Strategies in Catholic Higher Education'' on Oct. 1-2, 2009.
The symposium brought together enrollment and mission leaders to discuss the balance between mission aspirations and market realities as they shape enrollment strategies and outcomes. Also explored were commitments to diversity in enrollment strategy as a manifestation of mission as well as Catholic values and identity as revealed in institutional marketing and communications. The keynote address was given by Arnold Mitchem, president of the Council for Opportunity in Education, who talked on the role of Catholic colleges in the national debate on college access.
