What do we do?

The Recruitment Coordinators in the Office of Enrolment Management is responsible for the coordination and implementation of local, national and aboriginal recruitment. The department focuses on key regions identified through a combination of enrolment reports and research in an effort to maximize the exposure of Vancouver Island University in our local communities and across Canada.

Externally, we liaise with high schools, agencies, community groups, aboriginal communities, parents and alumni as well as attend conferences, post-secondary recruitment events, community events, Aboriginal events, and local and national education and career fairs;  all with the goal of raising awareness of the institution, developing VIU ambassadorship and, ultimately,  recruiting new students.

Internally, we assist in the preparation, development and production of marketing materials, event participation, Tool Kit development, and recruitment protocols and processes.  Additionally, we are available to provide support for on campus events.
