IU engaged in aggressive recruitment campaign to increase diversity

Friday, March 21, 2014

The Office of the Vice President for Diversity, Equity, and Multicultural Affairs, the Office of Enrollment Management, and IU Bloomington units are working with one another to develop and foster a diverse and inclusive community on campus.  More aggressive recruitment tactics are being undertaken to help the university meet its enrollment goals.  Included among the efforts is the appointment of Khala Granville as associate director of admissions.  Granville is responsible for diversity-oriented student recruitment and outreach in Indianapolis and the surrounding areas. She will focus on outreach through the "six C's": community organizations, counselors in high schools, camps, competitions, churches and community colleges.

"We are also engaged in aggressive and collaborative marketing and recruitment campaigns that reach students and families where they are," Martin McCrory (associate vice president for diversity, equity and multicultural affairs and vice provost for educational inclusion and diversity) said. "Moreover, we are going to expand our on-campus opportunities for pre-college students and make certain we are following up with those students to get them to IU Bloomington.”
