Helix Takes the Stage at UPCEA New England

To say October has been a busy time on the road is an understatement. But here we are, closing the month with one more UPCEA regional event, and we couldn’t be more excited. The 2015 UPCEA New England Regional Conference kicks off October 28th-30th in New Castle, NH.

We are thrilled to have been selected to present the breakout session, “Meet the Institutions and Post-Traditional Students of Tomorrow,” featuring Nancy F. Krippel, Ph.D., Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs at Brenau University and our own Regional VP, Chris Edwards.

Student dynamics are changing. Recruitment and retention is becoming more complex. Institutions are finding themselves forced to do more with less. Keeping pace with these changes means institutions need to advance academics and operations, adopting new technologies, data analytic processes, and partnership strategies. Session attendees will have the opportunity to explore the shift in adult learners and how it impacts what their institutions are doing to support the student lifecycle and optimize the cost of graduation.

Chris and Nancy will take the stage on Thursday, October 29th at 4:15 p.m. Additionally, you can find our team in our booth, where they will be showcasing our newest student lifecycle solutions: Helix Enable, Integrated Agency of Record, and Retention-as-a-Service.

UPCEA New England also has identified some timely and ever-relevant topics for discussion during the event where Helix can share quite of bit of insight and impressive results:

  • Assessing the impact of digital marketing
  • Using high impact advertising and recruiting strategies
  • Engaging and retaining students in class and online
  • Forging partnerships for success
  • Implementing a multi-faceted, integrated marketing strategy
  • Investing in technology and data analytics

Whether on stage, in our booth, or even in the hallways, are looking forward to sharing our ideas and collaborating with UPCEA New England attendees!
