    Submit a Session Proposal for the Workshop

    Don't Let These Concerns Stand in Your Way! Submit Today!

    • No Co-Presenter: If you are interested in presenting on a particular topic and are unable to independently identify a co-author from another institution, we still encourage you to submit a session. If accepted, we may match you with one or more accepted presenters in the same topic area.
    • No or Limited Outcomes Data: While we strongly encourage you to share any available outcomes data, we recognize that not all activities will directly correlate with applications, enrollment, success, or retention. Please share your innovative ways to engage, assess, and support prospective students at every level, regardless of whether the effect of those efforts on the institution or individuals is yet known.
    • Short Session Time: We recognize that you may have a great idea or activity related to a particular topic, but only need a few minutes to share it. The session proposal form allows you to identify what session length may best suit your content. Proposed sessions ranging from 10-60 minutes are welcome!


    Session Categories

    • Scaling Up - Undergraduate Collaborations and Student Recruitment: Presentations will focus on strategies for integrating pharmacy promotion into the institution's undergraduate programs and activities, including recruitment, admissions, orientation, advising, and curriculum.
    • On the Right Path - Developing and Assessing Soft Skills: Presentations will describe how pharmacy schools can support the development of soft (non-academic) skills of prospective students before they apply, help them overcome well-being challenges or missed educational opportunities before they apply, and/or assess their soft skills in a holistic admissions process to ensure they can be successful in the professional program.
    • Ready to Reach the Top - Assessing Applicants for Academic Preparedness: Presentations will focus on admission and pre-enrollment assessment strategies to identify applicants who have the potential to be successful in the professional curriculum.
    • Peak Elevation - Post-Acceptance/Pre-Matriculation Programs: Presentations will highlight successful post-acceptance/pre-matriculation programs offered by member schools.

    About the Workshop
    Please join us for the 2023 AACP Admissions Workshop: Reaching New Heights in Recruitment, Admissions, and Student Success! We welcome all administrators, faculty, and staff who play a role in recruitment, admissions, enrollment management, and retention of a diverse group of professional or graduate degree program students to this 2-day event. The hike to the summit will involve opportunities to learn, engage, and network. Workshop sessions highlight novel strategies for fostering student success, including pre-matriculation programs to boost math and other skills, as well as refined approaches by which the Academy can collectively overcome the enrollment challenges and promote an avalanche of applications. The Workshop will precede the 2023 Annual Meeting. Additional details about programming, WebAdMIT training, and registration will be available by spring 2023.
