Admissions Counselor Institute

MACAC's 2016 Admission Counselor Institute (ACI) hosted 44 eager professionals from 2 and 4 year colleges from every corner of Minnesota and some of Wisconsin.  Throughout the two days, these professionals were open, engaged and questioned topics on Financial Aid, communicating with high school aged students and counselors, working with diverse student populations, uncomfortable conversation, and more. In addition to the in-depth session topics, they were able to network with other newer professionals working in higher education.

ACI is a professional development opportunity for professionals from 2 or 4 year colleges with less than 1 year of experience.  The Professional Development staff recognizes the intense training their home institutions offer, so this is a supplement to that training, touching on and reinforcing their training as well as providing them with tools and resources to ensure a successful first or second year of recruitment
