About the Episode

About the episode: With the enrollment cliff looming, conversations about enhancing nontraditional student recruitment efforts have increased among colleges and universities that historically serve traditional students. So, what kinds of faculty and staff do these institutions need to best serve this target population? This episode’s guest, Chris Rapozo, came to the U.S. from Germany as a working family man; and he has a wealth of thoughts about the talent that institutions need for their efforts.

Here’s what we’ll learn from Chris:

  1. The hurdles that nontraditional students must navigate to get into and stay in school,
  2. The expectations that nontraditional students have of faculty and staff, and
  3. Ideas for how colleges and universities acn put the best employees in place to attract and retain nontraditional students.
