Outreach and Recruitment

Welcome to the Bates Outreach & Recruitment Office! Our mission is to inform prospective students, increase access to educational opportunities, and connect students to critical resources.

Outreach & Recruitment builds a strong relationship with high schools, community organizations, local businesses, the military, other colleges and universities and, of course, students and parents.

We coordinate several events every year to allow you to learn more about Bates.

Career Counselors and Educators Conference:

Learn more about our College career programs, training offerings and services.

Learn about important trends in our economy that are changing students’ path to success in our local job market

Open Houses: Our fun, interactive Open Houses at each campus showcase the college. Participants can explore our career pathways and programs, tour the campus, talk with financial aid experts, and learn about scholarships, grants and more!

Stay tune for our virtual open houses!
