Professional Development Institutes

NAGAP's Summer Institutes specifically focus on the needs of those who have been working in the field, or in their current positions, for less than three years. Additionally, professionals with more experience in undergraduate, graduate, faculty, or related higher education environments, have also found these conferences to be useful and appropriate.

NAGAP's Winter Institutes focus on advanced topics and are specifically designed for graduate admissions and enrollment management professionals with five or more years of experience. They are offered in settings that promote discussion and interaction among all participants. Enrollment is limited; therefore, early registration is strongly encouraged.

Pre-Summit Institute - in conjunction with the NAGAP Annual Conference

The Pre-Summit workshop is specifically designed as an intensive, half-day program that focuses on a specific issue affecting graduate enrollment management. Past institute topics include: Creating Graduate Education Opportunities for Veterans & Military Students, Successful Strategies for the Recruitment and Retention of Underrepresented Graduate Students, Developing Successful International Student Recruitment and Retention Programs.
