Campus Renews Academic Impressions' Higher Ed Training Membership for Staff

November 10, 2016

How will you use your membership?

Campus leadership is pleased to renew our Academic Impressions institutional membership. Effective October 1, 2016, the entire UCSC campus is participating in Academic Impressions’ AI Pro yearly professional development memberships.

The AI Pro membership gives access to hundreds of hours of training on the most critical issues facing higher education. Here are some selected upcoming educational opportunities listed for reference:

  • Title IX and Study Abroad: Planning for Success

  • FERPA Lessons and Quizzes

  • Engaging Leadership Volunteers for Fundraising Success

  • Motivating and Leading Across Generations

  • The 10 Differentiators of Exceptional Teams in Higher Education

AI is not a policy organization. Their programs focus on what can be done today and tomorrow, given an organization's unique goals and constraints. Through focused and intentionally crafted learning experiences, they help institutions address their most pressing challenges, guiding them through in-depth discussions, analysis, and application.

“Our main interest is helping colleges and universities around the globe tackle the issues that directly impact their overall health and ability to compete. We address a range of issues related to student enrollment and learning, faculty support and engagement, alumni and donor support, and increasing organizational productivity.
- Amit Mrig, President and CIO Academic Impressions - Watch the video!
