Financial aid administrators, and anyone that works in the field of higher education, serve an increasingly diverse population of students. As the challenges facing students and those that care for and work with them change, it becomes more important the challenges are met with a staff that understands and even reflects those being served. Part of accomplishing this feat is through diversity within your staff. Diversity begins at recruitment and proceeds to the acquisition of a new hire. This session provides strategies for avoiding discrimination at the onset of the new hire process.
