NACAC's 69th National Conference
September 19-21, 2013
Wednesday, September 18 – Thursday, September 19, 2013
Target Audience: Secondary
Level: Advanced (College Counseling Department Chairs, Directors of Guidance, Secondary School Head Counselors, Aspiring Directors)
With an increased emphasis on student outcomes and the creation of new accountability measures, college counseling programs must be able to demonstrate, with the use of data, that they are accomplishing their goals and serving all students and families effectively.
To do this, college counseling programs must be designed to be student centered and equity based with a focus on the future. It must be nimble enough to shift according to changes in the postsecondary landscape and comprehensive enough to accommodate shifts in demographics and a variety of student needs.
Directing a Dynamic College Counseling Program is an intense professional development workshop offering college counseling department chairs, directors of guidance, secondary school head counselors, and aspiring directors the essential tools to build, grow and enhance a college counseling department. A private tour and dinner with admission and enrollment leaders at a local university will also be included.
