Middle Management Institute

    

The TACAC Middle Management Institute (MMI) is a professional development program designed for both current and aspiring managers working on both sides of the desk. MMI program attendees can expect a rigorous curriculum built around dynamic educational sessions and collaborative learning experiences between program participants.

We are continuing our practice of offering a one-day track for secondary counselors, community-based organization staff, and independent educational consultants.

 *Participants must be TACAC members and be current with membership dues. Capacity for secondary/CBO/IEC participants will be limited.*

Our Program:

While sessions change from year to year, TACAC’s Middle Management Institute commits to addressing three main themes from a managerial perspective each year:

  1. How we work with students in the college admissions and counseling profession
  2. How we work with other professionals
  3. How we work on ourselves both personally and professionally

We believe that these three cornerstones of our program allow us to create a new curriculum each year while ensuring consistency in the quality and overall mission of our program.

Professionals attending MMI also will participate in our intensive case studies, where we simulate situations that managers face in admissions, counseling, and recruitment offices. Our case studies require small groups to work together while attempting to achieve a common goal under strict deadlines, tasks that facilitate cooperation, critical thinking, and the ability to work under pressure. As our profession necessitates, this fast-paced simulation will also ask that you are prepared for the unexpected!

I walked away from MMI with so many tips on how to be a more effective supervisor. The sessions left me very introspective about the types of things I could implement in the office to create a more effective and rewarding work space for my team.  The presenters provided really great information about how to manage different personality styles and how to advocate on behalf of others. I'm so happy I had the opportunity to attend! - Natalie Garza, Elon University

Conference sessions will be made available in early December 2019.
