Happy #GivingTuesday! Now that everyone’s bellies are stuffed and your wallet is begging you to give it a rest from all the shopping this weekend, it’s time to give back. TargetX is a big supporter of #GivingTuesday and its motto, “a day when the world comes together!”
I asked CRM Consultant and committee member of TargetX’s philanthropic initiative, Power of X, Megan Sneeringer, what she thought about #GivingTuesday and how higher ed can benefit from the special day.
Thanksgiving is a time to reflect on the previous year—the good things we have and what we are grateful for. We are incredibly thankful to have a group of clients that are innovative leaders in higher education—your drive inspires us to continue to create a better place for students.
The single largest challenge facing the University of Nevada, Reno, according to its Director of Admissions, Steve Maples, was “consistent growth” and the need to reach more students farther away. Maples and his staff needed the right system to help them with effective and efficient communications, outreach, and events to approach the “out-of-state-like” Las Vegas market and beyond.
Brian interviews long-time higher education administrator, Jim Hundrieser, the Associate Managing Principal at the Association of Governing Boards of Universities and Colleges. Jim’s association helps colleges build stronger and more diversified business models, identify revenue opportunities, review current practices to streamline operations and embed these opportunities into institutional strategic plans.
I chatted with TargetX Sales Engineer, Abe Gruber, about his experience at Salesforce’s big user conference, Dreamforce and what’s in it for higher ed. Here’s what he had to say:
AN: For folks who may not know, tell us… what’s Dreamforce?
Student retention is a high priority at many (if not all) institutions. These institutions, like Averett University, have lofty goals when it comes to retention, but do not have a system in place to support their efforts.
Stacy Gato, Vice President for Enrollment Management at Averett University, knew that something needed to change.
During the coming week, many of us will make our annual pilgrimage to the National Association of College Admission Counseling (NACAC) conference this year in Columbus, Ohio. Over a quarter of a century ago I attended my first NACAC conference and today I look back at all I have learned on how to make the most of this annual event.

Ah … spring. The time of year when we start to try to look ahead to our next class while keeping one foot in the fires of yield for this year’s class.
I may be a little biased, but the CRM Summit is my favorite event of year. I love getting the opportunity to meet our clients and hear their stories every summer!
Beyond that, we’ve got a lot of really cool things happening at this year’s Summit and I wanted to share what I think are the top 5 reasons to join us in San Diego in July!
Gone are the days of applying to just a couple of colleges by sitting at a computer (or in my case, a typewriter), filling out page after page of questions, crafting creative essays, and sending along a fee by check to each institution.
