Conference Sessions

Using Social Media as a Tool in Academic Operations

We all use some type of social media these days, so it is only natural that this technology should be considered a tool when working with Students in the Registrar’s and Admission’s offices. Based on research and practical experiences, this presentation will outline the elements on how to manage social media brands responsibly so that you can send out information, marketing, and communications to your students and parents – while making your school look ‘interesting’ to potential students.

Building a Blueprint for Student Success

We shall be examining institutional frameworks and organization-wide strategies for improving student persistence (retention) and completion rates. We shall discuss several approaches to enriching student engagement, establish metrics for gauging effectiveness and explore the necessary partnerships that institutions must cultivate in order to boost student success. We shall see from the extant literature that knowing why students leave or fail is not enough to retain them. We shall wrap up with constructing a customizable blueprint of student success by looking deeply into the student experience, which exists in a geometric model of three distinct spaces: Cognitive, Social and Institutional factors.

Building Bridges – Student Affairs, Academic Affairs, and Maxient

This presentation highlights how a community college streamlined its student conduct, behavioral intervention team, academic misconduct, academic early alert, and student complaint processes through Maxient to meet compliance standards and best practices for its accreditation agency. This change brought a high level of partnership between the Division of Student Affairs and the Division of Academic Affairs. This is only the beginning of this partnership. Come and learn more about how to develop partnerships through Maxient between various departments on your specific campus.
