"The open discussion sessions (by role or job responsibilities) remain my favorite sessions of the conference. The last two years I have taken the most away from these conversations because of the opportunity to talk to others who do similar work on their day-to-day as me. I left with a short list of individuals I plan to follow up with to further discuss our alumni engagement processes and practices."
"As someone without a previous background in higher education, this was an extremely valuable conference for me to better understand how my school is different and similar from others. There is a lot of variation in our field that I wasn't previously aware of. The conference has a very collaborative and supportive energy that makes it easy to ask for advice and learn more about other school's tips and tricks."
"Great calls to action. I appreciated the candor and lessons learned that were shared. It speaks a lot to the safe environment of learning we have created that we are able to share our challenges honestly so that they can better help others. Looking back, I wish I would have presented here too."
