  1. Connect Enrollment Management & Student Affairs professionals who are involved with the development and implementation of comprehensive assessment programs

Closing the Loop on 2013

  • 52 out of 90 attendees completed our consortium evaluation
  • 90% agreed that the consortium met/exceeded expectations
  • 83% agreed that the session were relevant for job/campus needs
  • The keynote and closing the loop sessions were identified as the most useful

Analysis of the open ended responses found the following:

  • Keynote related very well to the audience, and implications for everyday practice
  • Lunch groups created good conversation, yet not forced
  • Sessions touched on a wide range of topics, yet helpful to a wide range of participants
  • Partnership with CampusLabs created unique opportunity for on-site coaching
  • Overall structure/schedule works for a drive-in conference

Areas for Improvement for next year:

  • Involve students in session presentations
  • Recruit more sessions from a variety of schools (call for sessions)
  • Organize lunch groups by department/functional area
  • Add time in schedule for more Q/A during sessions
