MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The University of Minnesota is looking for ways to halt the enrollment trend of losing local high school students to neighboring states and bolster admissions to its system campuses.

Minnesota Daily reports that the university's Systemwide Enrollment Planning Taskforce in June presented potential ways to curb losing more high school graduates than it attracts.

Barbara Keinath is the vice chancellor for academic and student affairs at the Crookston campus. She says the task force is considering ways to encourage students to apply to the university's other campuses if they're not admitted to the campus of their choice.

Keinath says the goal of offering enrollment at other campuses will be to highlight and promote the specialties of each campus.
