February 16, 2018 Insights Editor

Graduate Outcome SACCR

In just a matter of days, many higher education professionals will be heading to Savannah, GA for the widely-anticipated 46th Annual Southeastern Association for Community College Research Conference (SACCR). This must-attend event is a great place to learn about graduate outcome strategies that are helping institutions enhance educational excellence.

Conferences can be overwhelming and may feel like information overload, but they provide an excellent opportunity for expanding your knowledge. With the SACCR conference right around the corner, we’re offering a few expert tips to make the most of your experience:

Know Before You Go:

The SACCR conference is jam-packed with presentations, conversations, and networking opportunities. It can be challenging to know where to focus your time and energy.  It’s a great idea to carve out some time in advance of the conference to assess the SACCR Conference Program and determine which sessions hold the most value to you concerning personal and professional development and the opportunity to explore new ideas.

Once You’re There:

In the ever-changing world of higher education, expanding your knowledge of what’s trending and cutting-edge can be immensely valuable. Challenge yourself to learn something new by attending sessions, networking with colleagues, and speaking with exhibitors. You may gain a personal connection that might benefit you in the long run, or you may find a solution to ease your institution’s challenges.

Don’t miss the opportunity to learn about the “new school” way to measure graduate outcomes. This session is the perfect place to hear how institutions are stepping away from using time-consuming methods like surveys, social media searches, or outbound call campaigns in their effort to collect data about graduates. You’ll learn how institutions can simplify collecting grad outcome data by leveraging the largest source of real income and employment information.
