Oneonta, NY (December 12, 2019) - Four dynamic speakers will keynote The Institute for Strategic Enrollment Management @Sunriver, June 29 - July 3, 2020.

In a time of unprecedented change for enrollment leaders, the Institute keynote speakers will provide perspective and share influences from the world beyond higher ed. Attendees can apply these in evolving and adapting their own strategies for success.

While faculty and mentors will address core topics—including enrolling specific populations, recruitment marketing, financial aid optimization, data best practices, digital media, and recruitment strategy—keynote speakers will kick off each day of The Institute sharing different insights on how leaders can adapt to change more broadly. The four speakers are experienced and innovative leaders from both outside and inside higher ed, providing attendees the much-needed ability to connect their institutional objectives to the world beyond their campuses, and even beyond their industry.

Keynotes will focus on four areas.

Throughout his career, Dr. DePerro has been committed to the accessibility of higher education to traditionally underserved populations, overseeing programs like HEOP, STEP, Upward Bound, Liberty Partnership, and the Collegiate Science and Technology Entry Program (CSTEP).

How to learn from other industries
James Rogers, Chief Executive Officer of 3 Enrollment Marketing, will discuss Modern Marketing in the World of Reddit. Earned from his three decades of experience in modern marketing strategy and execution, Jim has a unique ability to foresee future trends and evolve with technology—while always keeping it connected to core goals and strategy.
