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. It's necessary to have diversity within your staff in order to accomplish this feat. 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.
