Cedar Rapids, Iowa (PRWEB) April 11, 2016
Converge Consulting has announced it will sponsor and present at the 2016 Jesuit Graduate Enrollment Management Professionals (JGAP) Conference, being held in conjunction with the 2016 NAGAP Conference in Nashville, Tennessee.
The Jesuit Graduate Enrollment Management Professionals (JGAP) organization provides a forum for discussing and exchanging ideas on graduate and professional program recruitment, admission and enrollment to foster mutual professional support of its members. JGAP is affiliated with American Jesuit Colleges and Universities (AJCU) and NGAP, the Leader in Graduate Enrollment Management.
JGAP hosts bi-annual meetings in the fall and spring and offers professional development workshops for its members. The theme of the upcoming meeting on April 13 is new trends in recruiting and retaining international students.
Ann Oleson and Jay Kelly, Converge CEO and President, will present a session on creating an intentional recruitment strategy for international students. Over the past four years, Converge has established itself as a thought leader in recruitment, working with prestigious programs at UCLA, the University of Missouri, and the Winterline Global Skills Program. Converge also works with leading Jesuit colleges and universities across the country. The JGAP session will cover programs and majors international students are most interested in, countries that can help diversify student population, the most effective ways to attract, convert and delight prospective international students, and how to improve yield through engagement.
“We are delighted to sponsor the April event in conjunction with NAGAP,” said Oleson. “Through our previous work with Jesuit colleges and universities around the country, we have become experts in recruiting and targeting students who make sense for these colleges. It will be exciting to share our experience with members of JGAP.”
In addition to sponsoring the one-day conference, Converge will host a Lunch and Learn in Nashville. Presenting findings from their 2015 Inbound Marketing for Higher Education survey, Converge hopes to connect with colleges and universities in the Nashville area to share best practices and 2016 predictions. Converge hosted a similar event in Denver and is planning a third event in Philadelphia later this month.
