Learn how Penn State World Campus has been tackling enrollment challenges — virtually.
Fall 2020 is here and we’re midway through the first term fully under coronavirus. While colleges and universities do their best to adjust, the reality is that the restrictions, uncertainty and necessary changes are creating additional work — and stress — for faculty, staff and administrators alike. Now that institutions have had a chance to regroup following a surprise pandemic spring, we wanted to check in with a few of our partners to see how they’ve made adjustments for the fall term.
In this video, we sit down with Dr. Margaret Oakar, Sr. Associate Director, Admission & Financial Aid, Penn State World Campus, to discuss enrollment strategies and the value of capacity building and training. Penn State World Campus is the online campus of Pennsylvania State University — a storied four-year public university with 24 campuses across the state.
