How to improve
Decisions on usage of marketing money to go through Enrollment Management
1. Committee will review proposals and then PIO will bring recommendation to
president’s office for final OK.
2. Departments and programs should be encouraged to bring their ideas to
committee via chairs or PIO.
Initiate more surveys and roundtable discussions with students to figure out best
practices and areas to improve upon or integrate into current operations.
III. Open up dialogue with LASC departments on determining programs, students and
faculty to highlight on free outlets.
1. Tell unique stories on website and social media pages that separate us from
area colleges. What makes us different?
Website is the most effective advertising tool
1. Review your page. Information should be kept up-to-date and be promotional
as well as helpful to students, parents, guardians, counselors, etc.
2. Problems with page? PIO office will be reaching out to departments to
improve quality of your webpages. How would you like your page to look?
