500 – 7:30pm (Dinner)

Sunday, November 12

Facilitators:  Troy Hargrove, Associate Dean, Enrollment Management and Partnerships
Saint Louis University
Alicia Bingham, Coordinator, Summer & Winter Sessions, Western Kentucky University

The Jon C. Neidy New Administrator’s Workshop is for YOU!  We like to call it Summer Sessions 101 because this two day pre-conference workshop provides a valuable opportunity for new – or almost new – Summer Session Administrators to share experiences and learn together. 

The purpose is to provide an overview of summer session administration and the basic skills for success in the field.  Four key areas of Summer Session administration will be covered: Organization, Curriculum and Program Planning, Finance, and Marketing. This highly interactive workshop will provide you with an opportunity to reflect on what you already know about your university, administration, faculty, and programs, and merge your knowledge with new information

IPEDS Data and the Public Face of Your Institution COST: $75 per 4 hour session

Sunday, November 12
8:00 am - 12:00 pm. This session is repeated 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Audience: AVP, Directors, Program Managers, Data Analysts, Assessment Professionals

Facilitator: Sandra Kinney, Senior Director for Institutional Research and Planning at Georgia Institute of Technology

This workshop stresses the importance of accuracy and consistency in data reported to IPEDS based on the potential impacts the data has on state and federal reporting. Examples of real IPEDS data used in the public domain are incorporated, enabling participants to understand the role of governmental and non-governmental entities in IPEDS reporting and the potential impact that summer sessions have on national and state performance metrics. 

Pre-College Programs: A Playground of Opportunity COST: $75

Sunday, November 12
1:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Audience: New pre-college professionals and experienced pre-college administrators

Facilitator: Chris Cofer, Executive Director, Summer@Syracuse, Syracuse University

Pre-college programs exist in as many varieties and formats as there are institutions of higher education offering them. This interactive pre-conference session will explore the spectrum of program formats along with the challenges and benefits they provide to our institutions. The workshop will provide the core concepts and ‘to-do lists’ for newly hired staff in existing programs as well as aid administrators who have been tasked with creating pre-college programs at their institutions. Experienced pre-college administrators will have the opportunity to evaluate their operations and practices with insights to alternative and new approaches to increase outcomes.

Senior Leadership Forum

This forum is for experienced, higher-level administrators.  Topical Speakers offer insights, best practices, and strategic perspective on a variety of topics of concern to college and university leaders.  Open forum discussions typically cover issues directly and indirectly related to summer and other special sessions, especially since these are now such an integral part of students' progression plans as well as college/university/departmental funding models.

COST: $0 for NAASS Member Institutions. $85 for Non-Member Institutions.

There is no fee for this forum as long as attendee's institution is a member of NAASS.  Pre-registration for the forum is required, but registration for the conference, while encouraged, is not mandatory.  Sunday brunch is provided and  all Forum attendees are invited to attend the plenary session and opening reception immediately following the Senior Leadership Forum.   

Sign up on registration form.
