My goal is that everyone in our Rocky Mountain region, no matter whether they are an admissions counselor, educational consultant, high school counselor, or student, feels comfortable coming to me with an admissions practices issue.

On Friday, May 31, Montgomery Educational Consulting's Senior Associate Cara Ray will present at the annual conference for the Rocky Mountain Association of College Admission Counseling (RMACAC) in Salt Lake City, Utah. The session, titled "Pardon the Interruption - Let's Play By the Rules: A Debate and Discussion Surrounding Admissions Best Practices and Code of Ethics" will use case studies as a platform to discuss current issues with both college admissions counselors and high school counselors from the region.

Ms. Ray will present with the Director of Admissions from the University of Utah and the Associate Vice Chancellor and Director of Admission from the University of Denver. Ms. Ray currently serves as the Admissions Practices Chair for the Rocky Mountain Region.

"The National Association of College Admission Counseling (NACAC) uses the Statement of Principles of Good Practice to guide its member organizations and maintain standards of integrity all in an effort to better serve students," Ms. Ray explained. "Our hope through this presentation is to open lines of discussion between the college admissions professionals and high school counselors and talk openly and honestly about issues they are seeing."

The conference presentation will utilize case studies to help inform participants of best practices and spark discussion on what participants are seeing at their own institutions. It will also guide them on the steps for how to report a concern if ethical standards are not being met or upheld in a certain situation. Some of these case studies may include:

  • waitlist issues
  • fast applications
  • financial aid/scholarship deadlines

Ms. Ray elaborates, "My goal is that everyone in our Rocky Mountain region, no matter whether they are an admissions counselor, educational consultant, high school counselor, or student, feels comfortable coming to me with an admissions practices issue."
