Community Conversations

The Executive Board and the Governing Board continue to monitor the impacts COVID-19 are having on our Association and members. Our first priority continues to be our members and the students they serve.

In order to continue to support each other, NEACAC will still offer a series of Community Conversations via our Zoom Platform for members to support one another and ask questions. Each scheduled conversation will have a different topic. Please be on the lookout for the announcement of the dates and times of the upcoming virtual conversations. In an effort to make these conversations widely available, most will be recorded and posted on this website.

If there is another topic you would like NEACAC to discuss, please email [email protected] with the subject “Community Conversations.” 


Upcoming Community Conversations:  

Supporting Students in International Crisis
Wednesday, April 27, 2022 3:00 - 4:00 PM

In recent months, we have witnessed and experienced how global crises have affected our students and college counseling/enrollment practices. With the displacement of Afghan refugees, and now the war specifically affecting Ukrainian and Russian students, many admission and counseling professionals have had to swiftly step in to support students and families in unprecedented ways.

Please join fellow professionals in NEACAC for a Community Conversation on this topic. This interactive space is dedicated to share stories, recent best practices, troubleshooting, and idea exchanges among colleagues. Topics may include how you’ve altered application requirements, visa policies, summer plans, alternative enrollment options, social/emotional support in the community, and how to access campus resources and allies. Our goal is for participants to walk away with a better understanding of how to support their students and families in their schools and on their campuses.  

Moderated by Erik DeAngelis, President, NEACAC.
