Communication Protocol
Admissions will coordinate most of the event logistics and ALL of the communications. If any interested student or parent contacts CLA, requesting information about this event, please refer them to Steven Baker: Steven G. Baker, Senior Admissions Counselor for the College of Liberal Arts, at 612-626-91251-800-752-1000 or baker571@umn.edu.
CLA Staff Involvement     
For these events, staff will be asked to volunteer to help with registration and check-in, manning tables at the Information Fairs, and other event-related tasks. We will also be assisted by Admissions staff and student volunteers.
Here are some of the roles I am seeking volunteers for:
  • Check-in Help
  • Building Captains
  • Reception Set-up
  • Greeters
  • Collecting Evaluations
CLA Faculty Involvement
For the three Coffman events, I will be contacting faculty to seek presenters for breakout sessions. For every event, faculty will also be invited to a special faculty reception that concludes the program, times vary.
