Data and trending information, reinforced by our ongoing benchmarking tools, confirms what most of us can attest to through our personal experience; that each person's road map to and through the admission profession is as varied as the schools we represent. What brought you to the admission profession? Where are you today in your understanding of what competencies and skills are necessary to succeed in today's landscape? Are you prepared for the road ahead? And as well, are you planning your journey or will you find yourself being led by the trends and the tyranny of the moment? AISAP knows that the future has its nuances, twists, and turns and we will stay with you no matter what road bumps we may encounter. The AISAP Annual Admission Institute will put into focus your pathway to success both short-term and long.
Where Should I Stay and Where Is It Being Held?
Our host hotel is the Marriott Nashville at Vanderbilt University. The majority of the education sessions will be held at Vanderbilt University on the Vanderbilt campus. We hope you are ready for a first-rate College Experience and will embrace all that Vanderbilt, Nashville, and the Annual Institute have to offer.
What is the Institute Program Methodology?
The Institute programming is constructed in a manner that allows for small group discussion through a varied approach to presentation. Case study analysis and presentations from admission professionals and industry leaders, people who know and are experienced in their field, familiar with the issues at hand, and successful in the implementation of strategies to advance your daily work serve as the methods of teaching. Besides, cornerstone speakers will speak to general session themes and help to cue up our daily activity. Finally, foundational and "in the trenches" strategies will be highlighted and reinforced for you to return to your school and immediately implement these takeaways.
What are the AISAP Cohort Groups?
An aspect of your AISAP Annual Admission Institute journey is our annual cohort groupings. Started back at our first Institute, each participant is part of a cohort group that will help to emphasize the importance of contacts, collegiality, and community of peers. Your group will meet several times throughout the Institute, and as well AISAP supports these organizations after the program through ongoing web-based meetings as well as community-based net forums to keep the conversation and collaboration going long after we leave Nashville.
