Our Directors of Admissions, Mr. Branislav Lujic from the Heidelberg Campus and Mr. Keith Tomlinson from Largo, were chosen to present at the 5th annual ACICS conference 2015 in Las Vegas, Nevada from May 27-29th at The Cosmopolitan. Schiller International University (SIU) has received accreditation by the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools (ACICS) since 1983. The presentation is entitled: Best practices in International student recruitment and retention.
Worldwide, international student enrollments at institutions of higher education have more than quadrupled over the past three decades, from 1.1 million in 1985 to approximately 4.5 million in 2012. This presentation will highlight the benefits of enrolling International Students to your school; retention, cultural awareness, and the benefits of international scholarship. The various segments to international recruitment will also be underlined, making this presentation a necessity to any school looking to increase its international student population and/or enrich its cultural diversity. “We are very excited to have Branislav Lujic present at the conference,” states Jeanine Ford, Vice President of Administration at ACICS. “His presentation will be beneficial to our members and something to add to every education professional’s institutional toolkit.” Currently the Director of admissions for Europe at Schiller International University, Branislav Lujic has had over 8 years of experience in international student recruitment from the University of Phoenix and Schiller international University.
