Parchment Connect

Expanding the Community

The Parchment Connect series was first launched in 2014 and since then, we’ve held dozens of events around the country. After a long (quarantined) hiatus, we are thrilled to announce we’re bringing back this in-person and free event! In fact, we’re opening the event to all members of the education community – you don’t have to be a Parchment member to attend. Take advantage of a great day of networking and learning from your peers.

Hands down your conference was the BEST I have ever attended! Your team was professional, knowledgeable and personable. I left excited about your product and what I could do to make the most of it. Additionally, I LOVED how there was a Parchment staff member at each table. I truly felt valued as a client during the conference.

Come learn more from our panelists on their efforts to encourage and create a college bound culture from Freshman Year.

Demographic changes promise to reshape the market for higher education in the next 15 years. Hear from Dr. Nathan Grawe who will argue that colleges and universities can mitigate the effects through exploring successful avenues of response, including: recruitment initiatives, retention programs, revisions to the academic and cocurricular program, institutional growth plans, retrenchment efforts, and collaborative action.

Summer months are certainly not idle, but a time to prepare for the coming academic year. Evaluation of current processes might reveal a need to better automate incoming academic records for admissions as an opportunity to create efficiencies. Or, maybe you’re just curious what the differences are between Receive Lite and Premium and why over 1,000 institutions have decided to upgrade. Join this session to get a tour and hear from institutions about how they have streamlined their process using Receive Premium.
