June 18th – 20th, 2008
Using technology is essential in attracting students to your institution and creating an atmosphere that cultivates success. Some feel that when incorporating technology you lose the personal touch that makes institutions memorable. However, high tech and high touch do not have to be mutually exclusive. Knowing how to use technology to target the individual needs of students is the key to successful implementation.
The first day of the conference will focus on recruiting and marketing, and the second day will focus on student engagement and retention. Our speakers will demonstrate cutting-edge technology solutions that combine high tech with high touch so that students feel welcome and supported. The strategies presented will help you dramatically increase your applicant pool and your retention rates. The final half-day workshop pulls it all together and gives you the tools to implement change at your institution.
