Hampshire College’s mission-driven admissions strategy was presented at the national conference of the Consortium for Innovative Environments in Learning (CIEL).
Vice President of Academic Affairs Eva Rueschmann (pictured right), Dean of Admissions and Financial Aid Meredith Twombly, and Associate Vice President of Academic Affairs Yaniris Fernandez discussed Hampshire’s new recruitment and enrollment approaches, including the recent decision to go “test-blind” and no longer consider SAT/ACT scores in any way. Hampshire is the only selective college in the country that is test-blind.
The CIEL conference was held November 6-8 at the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa.
Hampshire College is a founding member of CIEL, a consortium of leading liberal arts institutions associated with the best of innovative and reform practices in American higher education. The group’s mission is to explore the nature, origins, and sustainability of innovation in higher education, to advocate for alternative practices, and to disseminate key aspects of new, improved learning practices.
