Take a look at the details…

The National Symposium on Student Retention (NSSR) offers a complete educational experience. The intimate environment enhances the potential for networking. The focus on content encourages collaboration among colleagues from diverse fields and institutions.

Our conference activities will center around the Grand Sandestin, steps away from the marina, tennis courts and a 5-acre nature park. Also next door, the pedestrian Village of Baytowne Wharf features restaurants, family fun-zones, shopping and live entertainment. From tranquil Choctawhatchee Bay, it’s a free and easy ride to the 7-mile strand of white sand beach.


Online registration will be open through Wednesday, October 25. Onsite registration opens at 7:00 am on Monday, November 6.
