Helix Education Brings Enrollment Growth to Life in a Big Way at the UPCEA 2016 Annual Conference

Helix Education joined higher ed leaders at UPCEA’s 101st Annual Conference to explore student-centric opportunities for post-traditional learners. We talked data-driven enrollment growth in our orange chair, released new UPCEA research findings, hosted the Enrollment Growth Gala on the Green, and had big fun along the way while connecting with UPCEA members.

This session marked the first in a series of communications about the research findings, with additional releases slated throughout the year.
