Educational Conferences and Offerings
NAGAP strives to provide informative, enriching and current education to its members. NAGAP educational offerings are constantly evolving. Our offerings range in size and scope from the multi-track Annual Conference with over 900 attendees, to the intimate Professional Development Institute with about 40 participants.
NAGAP’s educational offerings also provide an opportunity for members to share their knowledge and experience and create personal connections with their fellow GEM professionals throughout the year.
The NAGAP Annual Conference is designed with numerous educational sessions to meet everyone’s needs whether they’re new in graduate admissions and graduate enrollment management, or a seasoned veteran. The educational sessions will provide new approaches and creative strategies in a variety of topics related to our field, admissions policies and processes, career and staff development, graduate student support and financial aid, legal and ethical issues, marketing and recruitment, student services and many others.
Held each year in April, the conference brings over 900 GEM professionals together under one roof to gain insight and knowledge from peers and experts in the field.
Professional Development Institutes (PDI)
For 19 years, NAGAP has been educating graduate admissions and enrollment management professionals through its series of Professional Development Institutes. The Winter Institute is offered for the Advanced Graduate Enrollment Management Professional and the Summer Institute specifically focuses on the needs of those who are New Graduate Enrollment Management Professional, in the field three years or less. A half-day program that focuses on a specific issue affecting graduate enrollment management is also offered at the conference each year, the Pre-Conference Institute.
To better serve its members, NAGAP has begun offering regular webinars on a variety of graduate enrollment management topics. These informative sessions are provided by NAGAP members as well as professionals throughout the GEM community and the vendors that support them. Each session is provided at no charge to NAGAP members and archived sessions are available for viewing in the NAGAP Online Resource Center.
