Slate is a Customer Relationship Management tool used by the University of Northern Colorado exclusively for the recruitment and enrollment of students into UNC degree, certification and professional development programs. This prospect-to-enrollment system is used by campus recruiters and marketers to drive, answer and track interest, induce application, deliver decisions, and facilitate the completion of enrollment requirements.

Who “owns” Slate?
Slate is being developed by a group of three staff “Captains” at UNC. These captains oversee recruitment, application processing and review and other duties in the Office of Admissions, Graduate School and International Admissions, and Extended Campus, in addition to their Slate work. Also included on the team are support personnel from UNC’s Information Management and Technology division. The system is managed by these areas and is supported by the CIO and the Integrated Recruitment and Marketing Team (IRMT).

What is happening in Slate?
In year one (academic year 2018-19), the Slate captains concentrated their efforts on building, testing and deploying routine communication and marketing processes, applications for all terms, recruitment event forms and other admissions/recruitment tools. The team was involved in the training of recruitment and review staff/faculty on the system, and brought New Student Orientation and the Honors program into the system.
Can I use Slate?
Currently, only the main recruitment areas are engaged in Slate development. In year two, this group is hoping to bring the College of Performing and Visual Arts, and their application, into the system. Other requests for access and event enhancements for years two three are being actively sought from the campus community. These will be logged and reviewed bi-monthly by the Slate team and IRMT to set priorities and plans for future enhancements.
