Are you an institution challenged with recruiting targeted populations for your program? Are you thinking of starting a marketing campaign but don’t know where to start? This Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College and Career Training (TAACCCT) grantee faced the same challenges and was able to boost her student participation though successful marketing and outreach strategies.


In this month’s grantee webinar, we will hear from Diana Nastasia and Courtney Breckenridge of Building Illinois’ Bioeconomy Consortium (BIBC). The BIBC will share their effective approach and highlight the “how they did it” in an interactive discussion format. This webinar is a continuation of the group coaching activities the TAACCCT Learning Network (TLN) has been hosting regarding recruitment and retention. However, all TAACCCT grantees, or other institutions facing similar challenges are welcome to participate.  If you need ideas on how to boost your participant numbers, this webinar is for you!
