NASHVILLE, Tenn. (TSU News Service) – Leaders from higher education institutions across the country will converge on the campus of Tennessee State University next week.
The National Association of College Deans, Registrars and Admissions Officers is holding its annual conference in Nashville March 20-24. Tennessee State will host the conference on its main campus March 22-23.
The conference attendees will have an opportunity to represent their institutions at a HBCU College Fair that will be held in TSU’s Farrell-Westbrook Complex on March 22.
This year’s conference theme is “HBCUs Do Matter: Assessing Recruitment, Admissions, Financial Aid and Academic Data for Student Success.”
Dr. Curtis Johnson, TSU’s chief of staff and associate vice president for administration, said he believes the college fair will be very beneficial.
“High school students and their parents will have an opportunity to visit with institutions they might rarely have direct access to,” said Johnson, a longtime member of NACDRAO.
Dr. Gregory Clark, TSU’s director of alumni outreach and high school relations, is also a longtime member of the association, as well as a former NACDRAO president.
Founded in 1925, one of the main reasons for establishing the organization was to provide a forum for deans and registrars of black colleges to discuss mutual problems with a view toward improving the quality of education in member colleges, and to set standards for accreditation.
