Constituent Relationship Management
Colleges and universities are embracing constituent relationship management (CRM) in their drive to recruit, retain and engage prospective/current students and alumni. A well-designed, CRM-based process enables the institution to build a deeper knowledge of its target constituents by tracking personal interactions, experiences, and communications using CRM software. The end result is a stronger knowledge of these audiences and better, more personalized service.
