The Current State of Higher Ed Recruitment with Coronavirus

Jonathan Clues March, 4, 2020

We can't escape the coverage of the quickly spreading COVID-19 virus, also known as the Coronavirus, but it seems that we are just scratching the surface of the implications for the United States and the world. In this, we are also beginning to experience how this outbreak is affecting higher education.

As the outbreak evolves, there are swift and obvious actions and safeguards that colleges and universities are taking, including educating students on how to prevent the spread of the virus as well as bringing study abroad students back onto domestic soil. However, beyond the most important aspect of student safety, what other effects does the Coronavirus have on higher education?

As the Coronavirus continues to spread, the higher education industry can anticipate trends such as school closures and lack of visitors due to travel bans or safety concerns. So what plans do you have in place to supplement your recruitment strategies that are affected?

You are not alone. StudentBridge is in this with you. We have fully dedicated and immersed ourselves in higher education, and what impacts you also impacts us. We feel it is our duty to provide solutions to some of the recruitment challenges that you face.

We have always believed in reaching potential students with the Right Content, on the Right Device, at the Right Time using Personalized Rich Media. Our digital solutions have helped numerous colleges and universities tell their authentic story at every stage of the lifecycle and increase application and enrollment numbers. Using our Video Viewbook and Interactive Campus Map, our clients have curated experiences for prospects that make them feel as if they are on campus without ever having to visit - and during this time of caution, these tools provide the ultimate, safe alternative to traveling and furthering the spread of sickness.

As always, we are here to assist you in any way possible to help develop or support your current and future initiatives as they evolve with the changing landscape, so please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns.
