Special event gathered experts in NYC to strengthen collaboration among HETS member institutions.

Concurrent with its Summer Board of Directors Meeting, HETS celebrated a special event in New York City for Admissions, Distance Learning and Information Technology Directors on June, 28 2017, at Borough of Manhattan Community College (BMCC). The main purpose of this event was to identify strategies, and explore ways to collaborate through HETS on maximizing the assistance for transfer students including attending the particular issues that also distance learning students would face. The session was directed by Ms. Yubelkys Montalvo, HETS Executive Director, and Ms. Diane Walleser, Vice President for Enrollment Management at BMCC who also moderated the topic discussion.
