TxGAP - Summer Institute

                        The Texas Leader in Graduate Enrollment Management


2021 Summer Institute (Virtual)

Thank you for an amazing SI '21!

We will see you in person in 2022

With the ongoing travel restrictions due to Covid-19 at higher education institutions and budget constraints at several institutions, we are making this year's Summer Institute (SI) virtual. This year's SI will be held on Friday June 4, 2021 and will be FREE of charge.

We are planning for the SI to be a half-day event with professional development sessions and our annual TxGAP business meeting to update our members on the current state of our organization. We are going to try to host a member social at the conclusion of the TxGAP SI with some raffles. 

The final conference agenda with session links is posted below.

We hope to be back for a grand 2022 Summer Institute. 

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to email our Conference Chair, Heather Miller.

This year, we are partnering with Dare to Be Brave a local non-profit benefitting high school students with work skills and higher education prep. An email with details about the organization and how to donate will be sent on June 3rd. To donate now, please visit their donation page.
