The American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers (AACRAO) will host a webinar May 28, 2:30-3:30 p.m. ET, in which representatives from the U.S. Census Bureau will provide an update on the Bureau’s modified data collection timeline, procedures, and field operations for the 2020 Census.

The adjustments aim to ensure displaced students are counted as living at school, an important consideration for federal benefits for the regions around campuses.

It will be moderated by William Gil, AACRAO director of government relations. The speakers will be:

  • Judy Belton, assistant division chief, U.S. Census Bureau
  • Dora Durante, chief of special enumerations, U.S. Census Bureau
  • Cathy Hartz, portfolio manager, National Partnership Program, U.S. Census Bureau

For more information and to register, see the AACRAO website.
