Thinking about grad fairs this fall and confused by what options are best to enroll new students? Virtual, in-person, or a combination? 

Join your MAGAP colleagues for a return-to-campus Meet & Greet virtual event. Ariana Balayan and Emily Kormann Astaldi from the University of Massachusetts Medical School will present on looking beyond the traditional graduate fair to maximize recruitment effort and increase the visibility of graduate programs. They will also lead a discussion of the most pressing challenges GEM professionals will encounter for the fall recruitment cycle. 

This facilitated discussion will allow you to network with colleagues across the Midwest while tackling an issue facing most GEM professionals as we navigate post-COVID admissions and recruitment.
