Conferences

The USC Center for Enrollment Research, Policy, and Practice hosts the annual “go to” event for the nation’s leading policy makers, practitioners, and scholars in college readiness, admission, and success. Each event explores in depth potential “game changing” issues in college access and success.

The most recent 2014 conference examined the issue of Defining Merit: The Nexus of Mission, Excellence, and Diversity. Other recent conferences have included The Case for Change in College Admissions (2011), 21st Century Knowledge & Skills: The New High School Curriculum and the Future of Assessment (2012), and Attributes That Matter: Beyond the Usual in College Admission and Success (2013), the latter a thoroughgoing examination of non-cognitive factors such as determination, creativity, conscientiousness, and ability to negotiate obstacles, bureaucracies, and unfamiliar settings.
