The 74th Annual National Conference in Salt Lake City came to a close Saturday, complete with more amazing sessions, a spirited Membership Meeting and a rocking social.
Thanks to all of our attendees, sponsors, exhibitors, speakers, and staff that made this incredible conference possible.
Day 2 of the 74th NACAC National Conference in Salt Lake City was filled with Meet Your Match, informative sessions, networking, and the Counselors’ College Fair.
From early childhood through adulthood, few other institutions hold the power to transform lives so completely. Yet as the gap between the haves and have-nots grows wider in America, more and more families struggle to tap into those benefits, Kristof told attendees Friday during the keynote address at NACAC’s 74th National Conference in Salt Lake City.
“Colleges are a great public good, and yet too often, that public good is largely reserved for kids of the modern educational aristocracy,” Kristoff told the roughly 6,000 attendees at this year’s annual gathering of college admission professionals. “…At 25 institutions around the country, including five Ivy League institutions, more kids come from families in the top 1 percent than from the bottom 60 percent — that is a failure of that public good. We can do better.”
The sun has set on the first day of the 74th Annual NACAC National Conference and our #nacac18 social media feeds were on fire!
Here’s a quick snapshot of what went down in Salt Lake City on Thursday, Sept. 27, Day 1 of the conference.
The statistics are stark when it comes to college access and success for American Indians and Alaska Natives.
On some reservations, the college-going rate for high school grads is as low as 18 percent, according to data from the American Indian College Fund. And US Census Bureau data shows that only 14 percent of American Indians and Alaska Natives hold college degrees.
Yet when given support and curriculum that affirms their culture, Native students excel, Carrie Billy, president and CEO of the American Indian Higher Education Consortium (AIHEC), told attendees Thursday at NACAC’s 74th National Conference in Salt Lake City.
“A lot of our students don’t know who they are,” she said. “They’ve been through the K-12 system — a lot of them on reservations — and still haven’t learned their culture and their identity.”
