The 2022 Counselor Summer Institute, our free comprehensive online professional development event, is a flexible opportunity for counselors to connect and learn from higher education and counselor leaders. Join us for insightful discussions, updates, and advising strategies relevant to the evolving landscape of college admissions, student preparation and college success to assist students, families, and professionals.

We are looking forward to our ongoing partnerships with leaders from national organizations that serve, support, and advocate for the work of school counselors. Previous institutes included collaborations with American School Counselor Association (ASCA), College Board Counselor Community Advisory Group (CCAG), National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC), National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP), and National College Attainment Network (NCAN). 

All webinars are 1-1.5 hours in length and allow you to earn 0.1–0.2 Continuing Education Units (CEUs).

This year’s event provides counselors of all experience levels with:

  • Effective college and career readiness strategies and resources from school counseling leaders
  • College admissions trends and innovations presented by higher education professionals
  • Relevant guidance and insights for counseling professionals navigating college advising, assessments and admissions post pandemic
  • Discussions about mental health impacts and supports for professionals, students and school communities in the wake of the pandemic and social upheaval.
