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. Our Counselor's Breakfast for high school counselors is held in January.

Our fun, interactive Open House held in April of each year showcases 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!

We conduct enrollment fairs, career shadowing and other events throughout the year. Our staff can also visit your high school or attend your educational fair.

To arrange for a tour, presentation at your school or event, or to ask general or specific questions about the college or the admissions process, please contact Patricia Chase, or submit this form.
