Completion Nation: Complete College America Convening
December 12, 2019 to December 14, 2019
Phoenix, AZ
It started a decade ago with a mission – more Americans earning more degrees. That mission launched a movement, growing from a handful of change agents to a now 46-member strong national network of impatient reformers focused on student success, tested reforms and measurable results – a Completion Nation. Ten years in, the mission remains. The needle is moving, but there is more to do. Populations are being left behind and equity gaps persist. It will take a collective effort to close them.
