The University awarded a contract for International Recruiting to Emerging Consultancy, Kavimpagal Telangana, India, for an estimated $100,000.
Due to the decrease in enrollment, the University has made it a priority to increase the number of international students. In order to meet these goals, EIU must work with a dedicated recruiter. Emerging Consultants has proven themselves as dedicated to bringing international students to EIU, far surpassing all other recruiters.
The University has determined that this purchase is only economically available from this source because the Emerging Consultancy, who holds the existing Contract, is necessary due to the number of international students they are recruiting to Eastern Illinois University.
