Enrollment Outreach and Territory Development (EOTD) focuses on supporting new student populations along with initiatives to boost enrollments and student retention in existing degree programs. EOTD is also responsible for identifying and developing new non-degree programs to better maximize the University enterprise. EOTD currently supports enrollment programs for English as a second language (ESL) and military/veteran students and international summer programs.
Enrollment Outreach and Territory Development strives to increase the diversity of the Saint Louis University student body and to connect University resources with populations currently less represented in our overall student population.
Enrollment Outreach and Territory Development seeks opportunities to forge connections with the U.S. and international partners who will enable us to serve the needs of military, English language and non-traditional students, as well as alumni. We are guided by "an unwavering commitment to a higher purpose, a greater good."
