The Jon C. Neidy New Administrator’s Workshop is for YOU! We like to call it Summer Sessions 101 because this two day pre-conference workshop provides a valuable opportunity for new – or almost new – Summer Session Administrators to share experiences and learn together.
The purpose is to provide an overview of summer session administration and the basic skills for success in the field. Four key areas of Summer Session administration will be covered: Organization, Curriculum and Program Planning, Finance, and Marketing. This highly interactive workshop will provide you with an opportunity to reflect on what you already know about your university, administration, faculty, and programs, and merge your knowledge with new information

Pre-college programs exist in as many varieties and formats as there are institutions of higher education offering them. This interactive pre-conference session will explore the spectrum of program formats along with the challenges and benefits they provide to our institutions. The workshop will provide the core concepts and ‘to-do lists’ for newly hired staff in existing programs as well as aid administrators who have been tasked with creating pre-college programs at their institutions. Experienced pre-college administrators will have the opportunity to evaluate their operations and practices with insights to alternative and new approaches to increase outcomes.
This forum is for experienced, higher-level administrators. Topical Speakers offer insights, best practices, and strategic perspective on a variety of topics of concern to college and university leaders. Open forum discussions typically cover issues directly and indirectly related to summer and other special sessions, especially since these are now such an integral part of students' progression plans as well as college/university/departmental funding models.
