New Counselor Workshop

The University of Utah
Salt Lake City, UT
June 21-23, 2024

Registration will open in mid-April to allow more member schools to finalize hiring. Rates forthcoming.

The New Counselor Workshop is designed for college counselors with 0 to 2 years of experience who are new to the work, whether shifting from another role in independent schools, moving from college admission, or approaching the role from another background or lens entirely. This gathering focuses on essential skills, knowledge, and strategies for guiding students and families through the college search process, learning about college options, and networking resources for continued professional growth. Additionally, the faculty is committed to offering all sessions and facilitating all discussions using a DE&I lens by incorporating/focusing on the range of populations in our schools. The program is limited to 40 attendees.

For planning purposes, 2023 registration fees: $500 on-campus / $450 off-campus. On-campus registration fee includes workshop, most meals, and single-occupancy on-campus housing Friday-Saturday nights. Off-campus registration fee includes workshop and most meals.
