Outreach and Recruitment

Welcome to the Bates Outreach & Recruitment Office! Our goal is to inform, support, and guide prospective students, families, agencies, and the community through interest, exploration, and enrollment to our institution.

The Outreach Office aims to empower students by providing the most up-to-date information, program contacts, and clear pathways to successfully register through the enrollment process. We build strong relationships 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.
