Student Success: It Takes a College

Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the Council, it is my pleasure to invite you to the September 26 – 28 Professional Development Conference, Student Success: It Takes a College. Student success requires a strong institution with every department and employee working collaboratively. This conference will explore the dimensions of student success and provide you with the opportunity to hear from and talk to leading authorities.

Attending this conference also provides you the opportunities to
     • network, making long-term connections with other professionals who share your interests and concerns;
     • learn about recent developments in the career college industry; and

Conference Overview

From the first encounter with a recruitment professional to the exit interview with a career services placement specialist, the successful career college student is supported by a holistic, integrated institution that harnesses a full array of resources and best practices. Student success is not an accident; it takes an entire college or school – a strong institution with every department and employee working collaboratively – to ensure the success of students.
