Conference Mission Statement: The purpose of Jesuit Graduate Admission Professionals (JGAP) is to promote our distinctive work by providing a forum for discussing and exchanging ideas pertaining to graduate and professional program recruitment, admission, and enrollment and to foster the mutual professional support of its members who work with AJCU.

JGAP is a professional development organization for Jesuit Graduate Enrollment Management Professionals. JGAP is an inclusive and collaborative resource open to all graduate enrollment professionals at any Jesuit institution. Currently, 27 Jesuit institutions are members of JGAP (College of the Holy Cross is not included because there are no graduate programs offered) with over 100 individual members. Through the effective use of a listserv, members have the ability to post questions to solicit best practices from other Jesuit institutions to enhance their service to their institution and the students their institution serves.

In addition to the listserv, JGAP also has utilized social networking as a method to engage membership virtually to drive professional development. Meanwhile, members who attend a spring or fall meeting are afforded the opportunity of presenting in their area of expertise or listening to a wide variety of guest speakers who are experts in various areas of enrollment management.

Edward Cullen, Co-Founder, Bridge-USA, Fordham University '09
