Admissions and Enrollment Committee Minutes
February 14, 2011
Present: Sue McMullen (Library) Scott Rutherford (MNS), Tucker Wright (JS), Kelly Donnell (SED)
The meeting began at 1:00 p.m. in GHH 107.
- The committee is waiting to hear about the status of faculty phone calls to accepted students.
- After reviewing the compiled list of annotated scholarship websites, the committee agreed that the most useful resource is Scholarships, fellowships, and loans a guide to education-related financial aid programs for students and professionals , an electronic reference book. Contents may be browsed or searched by keyword. It is available from the library web site at http://library.rwu.edu/databases/reference.php. The committee is discussing the possibility of recommending that the Admissions Office, Financial Aid office, and Intercultural Center determine ways to link the reference to their respective websites. This may require that each office has a “passcode” – a generic barcode so that potential students could access the site off campus. It may be helpful to develop information for high school students as to where they can access the website (e.g., high school guidance, public library, etc.).
- While the aforementioned site appears to be the most comprehensive, additional scholarship sites can be made available as links on the websites of various offices.
The committee chair will contact Lynn Fawthrop regarding Accepted Student Days to see how the committee might help to facilitate faculty involvement.
The meeting was adjourned at 2:00 p.m.
Respectfully submitted by Kelly Donnell, Chair (SED).
