Collegis Education, a higher education-focused marketing and technology solutions provider, today announced plans to host its second Enrollment Growth Summit this fall. Approximately 25 higher education leaders from 20 different institutions are expected to attend the two-day summit Oct. 4–5 in Philadelphia. The summit is designed to help institutions unlock the secrets of integrated enrollment growth as well as better understand the challenges facing colleges and universities today. Collegis hosted its first Enrollment Growth Summit last spring.

“We are excited to host our second Enrollment Growth Summit and bring together higher education leaders who are eager to find innovative solutions to enrollment growth in an increasingly difficult landscape,” said James E. Cowie, president and chief executive officer, Collegis Education. “We know institutions are facing many challenges, specifically private colleges and universities.

All of our sessions allow for networking and collaborative discussion so that attendees can leave with knowledge that can immediately impact their institutional objectives.”

During the summit, attendees will hear from various guest speakers, including Dr. Kathleen Owens, president emerita of Gwynedd Mercy University. Dr. Owens will share pathways to enrollment growth from a president’s perspective.
