The IACAC Middle Management Institute is back and will take place June 7-8, 2012 at DePaul University. Our program, modeled after the NACAC Admission Middle Management Institute, will once again aim to educate admission professionals for the jobs they have now and those they wish to have in the future.
Middle managers in admissions wear many hats: they plan and coordinate on-campus programming, they supervise newer staff members, they oversee admission decisions and administer budgets, often while managing an admission territory of their own. They are invaluable to our offices, yet we cannot always give them the time and the training they need to further develop their skills.
Over a day and a half, participants will delve into topics like leadership, charting a career path, managing up, and the role of enrollment management. Sessions will be led by admission professionals from both institutions in Illinois and from around the nation who will not only educate, but will continue to serve as mentors for the participants long after the workshop has ended.
“We (the committee) were very pleased with attendance at MMI in its first year,” said Nate Bargar, MMI co-chair. “We hope to carry that momentum into this year and by utilizing the feedback from last year’s attendees, make this year’s program even better.”
The cost for this program is $150, with continental breakfast and lunch both days, and Thursday dinner included. For participants who wish to stay overnight, a reduced rate is available at Hotel Lincoln in Chicago.
Registration for the program is open now and will continue through May 25. More information can be found on the Middle Management website.
