On Thursday, Nov.17, New York Graduate Admissions Professionals (NYGAP) will hold its semi-annual conference at Syracuse University, hosting more than 60 graduate enrollment professionals from across New York state. 

NYGAP is composed of more than 200 graduate professionals representing 86 institutions across the state. As a state chapter of the National Association for Graduate Admissions Professionals (NAGAP), NYGAP was founded in 2007 to bring together professionals from the Central and Western New York areas. In 2008, the group expanded to include graduate admissions professionals from all of New York state. NYGAP is devoted to the concerns of individuals working in the field of graduate admissions, recruitment and student services.

Donald A. Saleh, SU’s vice president of enrollment management, will welcome the group and provide remarks on the future of graduate enrollment.

“We are excited to host the NYGAP conference here at Syracuse, where we will have the opportunity to highlight our exceptional graduate programs, but also showcase our highly skilled graduate enrollment staff that is right here on campus. It is an opportunity to learn best practices, share ideas and be rejuvenated in our careers,” says Joshua LaFave, NYGAP president and director of graduate enrollment at the Whitman School of Management.

Topics at the NYGAP conference include financial aid, social media, development of new programs and researching graduate enrollment trends as they pertain to the recruitment of future graduate students.
