Admission Counselor Institute
MACAC's Admission Counselor Institute (ACI) hosts eager professionals from two and four year colleges from every corner of Minnesota and some of Wisconsin. Throughout the three days, these professionals engage and question topics on financial aid, communicating with high school aged counselors, working with diverse student populations, uncomfortable conversation, and more. In addition to the in-depth session topics, they are able to network with other newer professionals working in higher education.
ACI is a professional development opportunity for professionals from two or four year colleges with less than one year of experience. The Professional Development committee 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.
With COVID 19, MACAC has decided to have this event virtually over 3 days. Professionals will log on in the morning from 9:00 am to 11:00 am. The content of ACI is largely the same, with a stronger emphasis on networking this year.
