It’s that time of year. Thank your staff for all the hard work they’ve put in throughout the year.  Why not say thanks with gifts from AACRAO’s holiday gift guide?

Here are gift ideas any registrar or admissions professional would be thrilled to receive, as well as an opportunity to donate to the important work of AACRAO Gives.

  1. AACRAO Membership - AACRAO Membership allows you to connect with more than 11,000 higher education professionals, representing 2,600 institutions in more than 40 countries. This is just a gateway into a wide variety of resources to help your staff succeed in their roles at your institution.  Members also receive member pricing on a variety of training programs such as online courses to international institutes/workshops,  and conference registrations.  It’s like receiving multiple gifts for the price of one.

  2. Subscription to AACRAO EDGE - Every staff member that deals with foreign transcripts would love to receive a subscription to this. It makes their job so much easier. The database is an invaluable resource that allows subscribers access to country profiles detailing educational system structures, grading scales, placement recommendations and more. The best part is this database can be accessed anywhere worldwide, as long as you have internet access. This would make a perfect gift for the traveler in your office. Feeling extra generous?  Considering bundling this subscription with registration to the upcomingWinter Institute for International Transfer Credit (February 3-7, 2020). 

  3. AACRAO Publications - Our online bookstore is the perfect solution for those that seem to already have everything.  Who could resist the gift of knowledge? We offer books on subjects such as: Admissions Recruitment, FERPA, International Education, Records and Retention, and Strategic Enrollment Management.  Browse our best-selling publications here . We also offer expedited shipping so you can get your books just in time for the holidays.

  4. AACRAO Webinars - Did you know AACRAO offers free webinars?  Order lunch, invite the entire office, and watch a webinar together. Our free webinars make a great opportunity to engage the entire office for a lunch filled with conversation.

  5. Contribute to an AACRAO fund - Donate to one of these three funds to allow other professionals to continue expanding their knowledge, and participate in GivingTuesday . The Conner Scholarship Fund helps provide support for one AACRAO member to attend the AACRAO Annual Meeting . The Gloria Nathanson Fund supports research in international education. The LEAD Fund prepares enrollment management leaders to take on leadership roles in Enrollment Management in the U.S. and across the globe. 

We thank you for a wonderful year and we can’t wait to share some exciting things we have in store for the upcoming 2020 year.  We wish you and your staff a Happy Holidays.
