“Recruiting and serving promising students
who persist and graduate from IU!”
Indiana University Bloomington welcomed its largest and most diverse cohort of first-year students today. The entering class boasts the best high school grade-point average in campus history and includes solid increases in the number of underrepresented minority students.
Community engagement is an important part of outreach to underrepresented students and that is why Vice Provost David Johnson has focused on expanding the connection to the “six Cs”: community organizations, counselors in high schools, camps, competitions, churches, and community colleges.
The Office of Enrollment Management at Indiana University Bloomington has realigned staff and resources and hired an Indianapolis-based associate director of admissions to create more effective recruitment and outreach for prospective students from underrepresented populations. Khala Granville has been appointed associate director of admissions with responsibility for diversity-oriented student recruitment and outreach in Indianapolis and the surrounding areas.
This year's first-year students at Indiana University Bloomington are the most academically accomplished on record, setting new marks for average SAT scores, grade-point average, class rank and other factors. They also are one of the biggest and most diverse classes ever to enroll at the Bloomington campus.
