Welcome 2017

On behalf of AARAO, we are thrilled to be hosting the first national Interchange Conference from May 24-26, 2017 at St. Francis Xavier University. This conference will bring together secondary and post-secondary professionals from coast to coast for a vibrant mix of professional development and networking opportunities.  

This year’s theme is “Change”.  

As guidance counsellors, registrars and recruitment and admissions professionals we share a common raison d’être: students.  Fostering their development and supporting their success is our universal mission. This year’s Interchange is an opportunity to engage in conversation about the change taking place in the educational landscape, at our institutions, and in our communities, in order to enrich our ability to support students in a positive and dynamic way.

Topics such as Strategic Enrolment Planning, Admissions best practice, Student Transition to Post-Secondary and Leadership in Higher Education are a few of the highlighted categories.  These topics will be explored in a global context through unique lenses such as social justice, leadership, and community development. 

We can’t wait to welcome you to our beautiful campus for engaging discussion, relationship building, and an introduction to the culture and community of Antigonish!
