National Name Exchange 2.0 [Overview for UW Depts]Presentation Transcript
The recruitment toolkit you never knew you had!
What is the NNE? Was established to help match graduate schools with minority students interested in graduate education. The National Name Exchange seeks to: Increase the number of qualified minority students accepted into graduate school; Improve student access to information on graduate school opportunities. Work towards personalizing the recruitment effort by designating a National Name Exchange institutional & department representatives to facilitate information exchange between the institution and prospective students. Assist graduate schools (and depts) in identifying qualified minority candidates for consideration for graduate study.
