“Guiding the Way to Inclusion” Conference

PCPR is offering 2 PCPR members the ability to attend NACAC’s Guiding the Way to Inclusion Conference (July 27 - 29, online).

NACAC’s Guiding the Way to Inclusion (GWI) conference is aimed at secondary, postsecondary, and CBO college admission professionals committed to championing the needs of diverse students within the college admission process. The annual gathering offers educational sessions regarding multicultural recruitment and campus inclusion while also providing a shared space for like-minded professionals to reflect on current issues and share best practices related to equity in higher education. Small group sessions, roundtable discussions, and networking opportunities provide avenues for both personal and professional growth. The cost of the conference to non-NACAC members is $200.00. PCPR will cover the cost.

You must have a current PCPR (individual or institutional) membership or sign for one upon selection. The supported attendees will be expected to provide PCPR turnaround training and/or programmatic guidance upon attending the conference.

PCPR May Network Meeting

With all that has transpired in and around higher education in the past year, admissions and related testing have begun to look very different. Students and parents are challenged with navigating a new - and seemingly every-changing - landscape for college admissions requirements and preparation. PCPR featured Akil Bello, assessment reform expert and Senior Director of Advocacy and Advancement of FairTest: The National Center for Fair and Open Testing.

With more than 3 decades of experience working on testing issues as a tutor, analyst, and advocate, Bello brought his expertise to the discussion of the what current landscape in admission testing means for the students we serve.
