NACADA’s Best in the Region Pick: The UHP!

24 Apr

Catherine, Liz, and Jared recently presented Intelligent Internetting or: How I Learned to Stop Emailing Excessively and Love the Blog at the NACADA regional conference.

Turns out, they liked it so much that they’ve asked for an encore presentation at the NACADA national conference in October!  We were voted “Best in the Region” for our presentation — which emphasizes the importance of using internet communications to assist in program development and academic advising, and provides tips, tricks, and proven techniques.

We’re happy to talk about our online appointment scheduler, IMs with advisors, snazzy NewsFlash!, online forms, social media communities, an active (and often entertaining) blog, and more.  We’re especially happy to share our working philosophy of not spamming students with a constant barrage of emails.

We put a lot of thought and hard work  into making things as fun and easy for UHPers as possible; we know our students are well aware of the work our staff do, but it’s nice to have this great opportunity to share our work with academic programs from all over the US.

We also appreciate the opportunity to make GLEE jokes about winning regionals and going on to nationals.
