SP1.9: Recruit Top Quality PhD Students

The plan calls for improving selectivity by generating increased applications to all graduate programs through increased marketing. Some examples are: Graduate fairs ; working with academic programs to enhance their recruitment initiatives; expand use of social media; and collaborate with programs on GRE searches. On-campus marketing is being increased, with "Campus Special" ads, participation in family weekend, student tabling and other campaigns.

Goals advanced under this project are:

  1. Become a Nationally Recognized University for Outstanding Doctoral Education
  2. Increase Research, Scholarship, and Creative Activities Profile to that of a Premier Public University
  3. Increase the Transformational Impact of the University’s Research, Scholarship, Creative Activities and Doctoral Education on Society
