Session I

Points of Contact:  How Colleges and Universities Build Their Communication Flows

Have you ever wondered how students begin receiving college information? Have students ever asked you why they are receiving specific college communications? This session will examine the various stages of the communication process from inquiry status to matriculation.

Shani-Lenore Jenkins, Associate Vice President, Maryville University

Session II

Ask the Experts

During this session, you will have the opportunity to hear from experts in the field discuss important topics such as the admission process, financial aid, scholarships, campus visits, and much more. Professionals from the community college, state university, and private university level will be represented. This is a great opportunity for school counselors and college representatives to ask those important questions they hear from their students on a daily basis.

Session III

Let’s Talk: Leadership, Personal Brand and You!

How do you define a leader? How do you lead? What is your personal brand? This interactive session will help you answer those questions and provide a framework for your leadership journey no matter your title. Participants will walk away with a few key statements and the start of an action-plan for the year.
