More than 1,500 higher education professionals have joined us in Chicago this week for the National Conference on Student Recruitment, Marketing, and Retention. We at Noel-Levitz appreciate their participation, especially in light of tightened budgets for travel and professional development. While many of them come to hear from enrollment management experts and campus practictioners who are sharing successful strategies for recruiting and retaining students, they also provide a tremendous collective knowledge that informs and strengthens the experience of this conference. Seeing this turnout reminds us that higher education is above all a community dedicated to the mission of enrolling students and helping them achieve their educational goals. We are grateful for the presenters and attendees who together make this event one of the most invigorating in enrollment management.
Thank you to all who are attending this week, and for those who couldn’t make it, we hope to see you next year in New Orleans, July 16-18, 2013.
