Summer Institute

2018 Summer Institute

Date: July 23rd-25th 

Location: TBD

The Ohio Associate for College Admission Counseling (OACAC) is proud to provide our Annual Summer Institute for our new OACAC members. This three-day, intensive, mentor-based institute brings together new college access partners with two years or less of experience together to foster a deeper understanding of the interaction between admissions counselors, high school counselors and community based organizations as well as expert insight into current trends and issues within the profession.

Through small mentor group discussions, workshops, and presentations, participants will learn; overarching job responsibilities, best practices, recruitment/travel, standardized testing, and advancing through the profession, to name a few. We are certain that the unique combination of a vibrant curriculum and diverse group of participants, committee members, and mentors will offer you a refreshing and rewarding experience.
