 National Small Colleges Enrollment Conference - 2017

National Small College Enrollment Conference

July 17-19, 2017 – Daytona Beach, FL

The National Small College Enrollment Conference began as an idea shared by two enrollment management colleagues. Neil Clark and Jim Black were frustrated that the conferences they attended did not address the unique challenges they faced as professionals at a small institution.

In 1989, they took the leap and gathered their peers from across the southeast to share experiences and present ideas. Gaining momentum, the conference attracted professionals from institutions nationwide and sessions were added to cover the vital topics of admissions, enrollment management and retention.

NSCEC is the first and best conference dedicated exclusively to the unique needs of enrollment and retention professionals at small colleges. In higher education’s constantly changing enrollment and retention environments in it’s imperative to stay current. Find tomorrow’s answers today!
