Beyond the First Year Student Experience
September 19, 2019 at 3:30 PM to September 19, 2019 at 4:30 PM
Campus data tell the difficult truth: students experience (and commit) harm beyond their first year in college. Too often, however, prevention education efforts aimed at ongoing students lack rigor or intentionality or are entirely absent. Join us to learn more about innovative approaches to providing the federally-mandated, developmentally-appropriate training required annually for all students, including those beyond their first year.

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.
