Guilford VP Named to International Student Recruitment Commission
Randy Doss ’82, Guilford College’s vice president for enrollment services, has been named to the Commission on International Student Recruitment of the National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC).
Doss is the only North Carolina member of the commission, which was created to address the long-running controversy over the use of commissioned agents to recruit international students. The group will have its first meeting March 5-6 in Washington, D.C., and will follow up with a second meeting at the NACAC national conference in Denver, Col., in October 2012.
“The members of this commission possess impressive knowledge and experience in the area of international student recruitment,” said commission chairman Philip Ballinger of the University of Washington. “Our goal is to be as open and inclusive as possible to ensure that the commission has all of the information it needs to bring this discussion to a fruitful conclusion.”
Key issues for consideration will likely include:
● An exploration of institutional policies and practices for the recruitment of international students in light of well-established principles for admission practice.
● Obstacles institutions face in the recruitment of international students, and ways in which such obstacles can be addressed.
● Federal policy challenges facing U.S. institutions wishing to engage in international recruitment.
