Higher Education Planning and Professional Development Opportunities

Reset, Recharge and Plan

As you prepare for the 2012-2013 school year, our Educational Managers can help you customize professional development and planning sessions to meet your institution's unique needs.

Discover how to access and use data to build a qualified applicant pool, focus on a specific area of professional development with your leadership team, or learn about the trends impacting colleges and universities across the country. Topics are offered in four different formats, each tailored for the number of participants and desired level of interaction.

  • Workshop: Ideal for medium-sized groups; features content that is actionable and hands-on.
  • Consultation: Customized for small groups and tailored to answer specific business needs; ideal for leadership team members and decision makers.
  • Presentation: Designed for a larger group (10+) and can be tailored from a number of content subjects; interactive in nature, with question and answer sessions.
  • Demonstration: Audience size may vary; provides an overview of a College Board product or service.

Below is a list of offerings in the Middle States Region, organized by topic and format. To learn more about these and other customized planning and professional development sessions, please contact Anthony Joseph at or 610-227-2541.
