ROI Evaluation in International Student Recruitment
(Excellent research by WES!)

World Education Services (WES) published a robust research article in its latest newsletter titled, The Next Frontier: ROI Evaluation in International Student Recruitment. My favorite part described differences in measuring the traditional hard returns (mainly numbers with dollar signs in front of them) and soft returns -- what we've termed quantifiably-elusive variables.

One way to address this challenge is to develop a mathematical model where international student recruiters and admissions counselors can input their own values to weigh the variables according to the mission and goals of your program or campus. For example, if boosting diversity among the international student population is the top priority, then enrolling a student from a country currently not represented on campus earns a more positive score than enrolling yet another student from a country already well-represented on campus. The model, of course, will be designed to evolve over time, as institutional priorities evolve.

We invite you to join the conversation leading to our general session at the upcoming NAFSA Conference in Denver! Contact
