Special Institutional Research Track at 2018 Conference

Have you registered for our upcoming 2018 GradLeaders Conference? Our team has been hard at work developing tracks and topics specific to you and we don’t want you to miss out on some of the valuable conversations that will take place at this year’s event.

You'll have the opportunity to network with other users and The Outcomes Survey® partners, hear best practices, receive hands-on system training, and connect with several other career centers, institutional research offices and employers in attendance.

There are 30 breakout sessions in total at this year’s event (view the detailed agenda), but we've highlighted several that may be of interest specifically to you as a TOS user:
