PlattForm, a top marketing provider delivering recruitment, enrollment, retention and career preparation strategies to colleges and universities worldwide, will sponsor and present at the 2014 Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools (ACICS) Annual Conference, Nov. 3-5 at The Ritz-Carlton in New Orleans.
Tribeca Flashpoint Academy’s (TFA) Executive Vice President and Academic Dean Peter Hawley will present with Aaron Edwards, PlattForm’s senior vice president of enrollment partnerships, and Vince Rizzi, director of university partnerships at Seelio – a subsidiary of PlattForm and student lifecycle portfolio solution. Their presentation, “From Inquiry to Alumni: Engaging Consumers With an Effective Communication Strategy,” will focus on building an integrated marketing strategy incorporating student engagement and retention, career planning resources and leveraging the alumni network.
“With all of the noise in today’s educational landscape, it is imperative that institutions align themselves with the needs of their current and prospective students,” Edwards said. “We are excited about the opportunity to present with both TFA and Seelio to show how we are creating unique strategies from inquiry development through graduation and on to building brand champions.”
TFA is dedicated to helping students gain a leading edge in the job market after graduation. In working with PlattForm on its integrated marketing efforts, TFA is using Seelio’s career preparation services for its students.
“We use Seelio from start to finish of a student's career,” said Hawley. “Admissions uses it to attract students; freshmen incorporate it in their first semester; Career Services uses it to help put students and employers together; and by graduation, we can track the growth of every student."
One of only two national accreditors recognized by both the U.S. Department of Education and the Council for Higher Education Accreditation, ACICS is the largest national accrediting organization of degree-granting institutions.
