The need for community colleges to provide high quality and affordable educational opportunities that lead to stable career paths and employment has never been more important. As we face continuing uncertain economic and financial times, community colleges have shown that they are able to pivot and can respond to any situation.

With the right information, targeted to the right people, at the right time, Aperture understands that enrollment loss doesn’t have to be permanent.

As always, Aperture Content Marketing is developing fresh content to meet community colleges’ specific needs every step of the way. This new material is already being deployed by schools across the US. Based on their experiences, we have also included tips for its effective use.

Taking care of your students

Current and prospective students need reliable resources with real information about the opportunities available to them at your community college.

Online and hybrid learning options have become part of the new normal. Our “Online and on track” content was designed with this in mind, to show students that there is a variety of ways to achieve their educational goals. See how one community college is using Aperture’s content to respond.

We recommend getting this piece in front of your audience in as many ways as possible. Aperture can help you quickly host the article on your own microsite. The URL from the microsite can be easily shared on social media, in email campaigns, or featured on your college website’s front page.

Win over a whole new layer of fence-sitters

Between the “Great Resignation,” the ongoing skills gap and the pandemic, there is a new pool of potential students for community colleges. Everyone is rethinking their plans. Students who previously were committed to a four-year school have reconsidered or entered the workforce. Many ask themselves: “How can my budget accommodate further education?” or “Should I rethink my long-term career plans and life goals?”

Now is the time to show these potential students that your community college has programs and resources which can help them achieve their goals without breaking the bank. Our latest piece on recession-proof careers is a great example. Content focusing on tuition assistance, including new and under-utilized programs like Michigan’s Reconnect grant, can target qualifying demographics and increase enrollment.
