Where are We Going and is This Sustainable?: The Future of Higher Education
The world of admission is changing and the projections for the next decade will continue to push institutions into new and conflicting contexts. The demographics of the country are shifting, the cost of college is outpacing household income, and technology is changing the ways students interact with colleges. The demand to fulfill institutional priorities increases every year as we strive to be accessible, diverse, cost-effective, and balanced. However, there is a paradigm of trade-offs as class sizes stay the same. Join the conversation about how to prepare for the next decade and the tough decisions ahead.

Do You See Me?: Examining the (In)Visible Presence of Marginalized Students
How do you help prospective students envision themselves on your campus? How do you show them current students, faculty, and staff with similar stories? How do you highlight campus resources for marginalized students that support their emotional, academic, and social success? Take an in-depth look at targeted communications for marginalized student populations, and hear best practices for identifying and working with current campus community members on communication plans, including segmented communications, drip campaigns, and social media.

Home is Here: Working Together to Serve Undocumented Students
As higher education professionals, we are serving undocumented students, self-identified and not, every day. Who are these young people? Do we have the knowledge and resources to appropriately support them? How are our institutions serving them? Given the national landscape and ongoing dialogue on immigration issues, what conversations might we find ourselves involved in? Which ones should we start? Join us for a candid, challenging, and hopeful discussion. Leave with a personal action plan, several best practices you can immediately use, and resources to help you connect with a network of support.
