If you're trying to grow your adult enrollment and feeling overwhelmed, confused, or unsure of how to prioritize, you're not alone.
Marketing to adult learners is much more complex than marketing to traditional students.

In this eBook, we look at what motivates adults’ return to college as well as the main questions they have as they consider this journey. We've also compiled 10 ideas (plus one bonus point!) on how best to position your institution in an especially noisy marketplace. Here's an overview:
