The SEMM Forum was a great venue to generate ideas and validate the good work we are doing. It is well worth the time.
The information presented was relevant to a wide range of post-secondary administrators. This is extremely important as communication between all levels of administration such as recruitment, marketing, student services, admissions and all other facets is needed in recruitment, retention and graduation initiatives.
I found the keynotes, breakout sessions, and networking both highly valuable and engaging. It is worth attending, if for the Canadian context alone.
I love to see the post-secondary sectors growing interest in leveraging data to make decisions. The SEMM Forum brought together a diverse group of professionals dedicated to student success!
This conference gave me more useful stats and strategies to bring back to my institution than any other.
The conference is a beautiful marriage of theory and ideation with tangible, successful best practices to filter through and inform a thoughtful, individualized strategy for each Post-Secondary institution. I appreciate the level of information sharing and cooperation across Canada, all with student success in mind.
This was a really great conference. All Canadian content, lots of networking and I came away with so many ideas that I can implement at my own institution.
The SEMM Forum in Vancouver provided a great opportunity for our group of more than 20 colleagues from SFU to spend a day together with industry leaders. It was of great value as it allowed us to access current data and expertise and dialogue with other institutions and each other for a very reasonable cost.
This day was extremely valuable. A great chance to connect with Canadian enrolment management staff and share ideas.
What I found really valuable about the SEMM Forum is that the content is all Canadian. This means that a lot more of the learnings are directly applicable to the work we do.
