2017 AACRAO
Technology & Transfer Conference


Join Us in New Orleans
A growing emphasis on student success and outcomes has many implications, especially as institutions attempt to recruit and retain diverse, knowledgeable, and mobile populations. For many institutions, creating a transfer-friendly environment is a key strategy as students continue to transfer at higher rates. In addition, the use of technology is integral to enrollment strategy, and the activities of the registrar, admissions, orientation, and retention staff are often the critical difference between institutional success and failure.  

With this in mind, we invite you to join the ongoing conversation at AACRAO’s Technology & Transfer Conference in New Orleans. The sessions, workshops, and networking opportunities at the meeting will help you develop and refine your own programs, policies, and initiatives and inspire others on your campus to make a real difference in the success of your students. 

One Meeting, Two Programs
Both Technology and Transfer offer their own independent programming; however, they will share plenary speakers, refreshment breaks, social events, and the exhibit hall. As a registered attendee, you may attend any sessions of your choosing.  Last year, many attendees took advantage of this opportunity, and many schools sent institutional teams to “divide and conquer” the sessions.

Technology Program
The sessions and roundtables that make up the Technology portion of the conference focus on the pragmatic aspects of technology, the issues surrounding its use, and how technology can be applied in an innovative manner. Learn how technology integrates into campus operations, and how these tools support the academic policies and objectives of higher education institutions. Connect with a community of peers to delve into these issues, vet new ideas, and to hear/provide relevant feedback and guidance. 

Transfer Program
With the increase in non-traditional routes for educational attainment, transfer has become a central focus in higher education.  The Transfer programming at the conference includes a preconference workshop, along with sessions and roundtables.  Analyze transfer credit and transfer policies, and learn about the best practices being employed to support the success of this growing student population.
