Balancing the Tradeoffs in Admissions
Jeff Selingo and Karin Fischer, Future U
Angel Pérez got his first job in admissions immediately after graduating college. He was inspired by the chance to do for others what an admissions officer once did for him: recognize promising students beyond simply test scores.
Today, as vice president for enrollment and student success at Trinity College, Pérez is a staunch advocate for first generation and low-income students. In this podcast, he discusses his efforts to bring socioeconomic diversity to a liberal arts college and the tradeoffs admissions deans need to make to fulfill institutional priorities.
