ECC Recruitment Council

Supporting the ECC Framework through new student enrollment and focused recruitment efforts.


The charge of the Recruitment Council is to focus and strengthen new student recruitment. MSU Denver staff and faculty are constantly evaluating enrollment trends, reviewing institutional data to develop short-term and long-term plans to amplify new student recruitment. The council is represented by individuals across campus who have identified the University's greatest recruitment needs and implemented tactics to address them.
