Admissions Practices Chair Jake Talmage (Director of College Counseling, St. Paul's School) visited the Common Application Headquarters in Arlington, VA on Monday, August 24 to present Ethics in Admission to approximately thirty Common Application staff members.
During the presentation, Jake introduced NACAC’s Statement of Principles of Good Practice (SPGP), provided an overview of the Admissions Practices Committee and led discussions concerning several sample cases.
According to the Heidi Dillard, Director of Human Resources at the Common Application, “Our team learned a lot from Jake and it will help them be better at their jobs. The team found him engaging, informative and fun!”
Jake’s visit was initiated after two Common Application staff members saw a similar presentation at PCACAC’s Summer Institute in July and suggested similar training for the office. PCACAC was happy to support the educational training.
