    BETHLEHEM, PA—The National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) recently released professional standards for university relations and recruiting operations.

    NACE unveiled the standards to its membership at its annual conference in June.

    Funded through a grant from the NACE Foundation and developed with the assistance of NACE employer members, the standards are designed to “provide clear direction for organizations interested in recruiting new college graduates for their work forces,” says Marilyn Mackes, NACE executive director.

    “The standards are built around four areas critical to recruiting success—program infrastructure, program assessment, sourcing, and selection,” she says.

    The standards address the practices an organization should follow to ensure a sound university relations and recruiting program, provide direction on the experience and training that program managers and recruiting staff need, and offer organizations a way to assess the effectiveness and efficiency of their university relations and recruiting function.

    The NACE Professional Standards for University Relations and Recruiting are available at www.naceweb.org/recruiting/professional-standards-for-urr.aspx.
