A Decade of Growth
Over the past decade, NACAC membership has grown by nearly 40 percent and is now more than 15,000 members strong.
As our membership expanded and changed throughout the 2010s, so did the programs NACAC offered.
Take a closer look at this decade of growth.
This past decade marked a notable shift for The Journal of College Admission.
In 2015, it was redesigned and moved from a peer-reviewed research journal to a quarterly magazine offering practical tips, research-to-practice information, member profiles, upcoming events, and news you can use.
But the one thing that hasn’t changed across the years is the high quality of articles from our members.
Enjoy taking a trip down memory lane as we look back at some of the best Journal articles of the decade.
In contrast, When Likes Aren’t Enough: A Crash Course in the Science of Happiness, focuses on prevention. The book, our latest #NACACreads selection, shines a light on positive psychology strategies that can be used by all students to increase their sense of well-being.
“Positive psychology studies the behaviors and mindsets that contribute to psychological health, well-being, and flourishing,” author Tim Bono explained during this week’s #NACACreads chat. “…(It’s) interested in getting in on the front end of the mental health crisis by identifying behaviors that can proactively build well-being and provide a buffer against distress before clinical interventions become necessary.”
On Dec. 11, #NACACreads chatted with Tim Bono about his book, When Likes Aren’t Enough.
