In March, the Office of Admissions will host a series of critical phone calling campaigns to increase the yield of admitted students from targeted populations, including Regents Scholars, Chancellor's Associate Scholars, historically underrepresented students, and the top 30% of admits based on their academic profile.
The Early Calling Campaign is the first of the series and will take place March 3-8, 2015. Faculty and staff are asked to call historically underrepresented students who have been admitted to your department, program or college. By participating in this important yield event, you will be the first person to share with these students the exciting news of their admission to UC San Diego! Following the Early Calling Campaign, current UC San Diego students will call admitted students to invite them to Triton Day and campus overnight programs; the following week UCSD alumni will share their Triton experiences with admitted students who are not contacted in the first two campaigns.
To participate in the Early Calling Campaign, follow this link to register as a caller: http://admissions.ucsd.edu/earlycalling.html. A link to the active calling campaign site will be sent via email prior to the campaign launch. The online tool will assist you with placing and tracking calls to the admitted students.
Admission decisions will be released mid-March, and once again the fall 2015 admits are among the best and brightest with offers from top institutions across the country. Research indicates that faculty interaction is a key factor in a student's college decision-making process. Therefore, faculty participation is essential to our success. In an effort to increase participation, please forward this invitation to your staff and colleagues.
If you have any questions, please contact Amanda Kalal (x60269, firstname.lastname@example.org).
The calling campaign is truly a campus wide effort and the participation of students, faculty, staff and alumni is essential to our success. Thank you in advance; we look forward to another rewarding and productive yield campaign.
