Summit Theme: After ten years of reform and innovation on student success…where do we stand and where are we going? Ten years ago the Lumina Foundation and its partners launched Achieving the Dream (ATD) as the first major national initiative to focus on student success in community colleges. Building on the early work of ATD, a plethora of national initiatives have sought to increase the rate of degree completion in community colleges with the most prominent being the call by President Obama in 2009 that “by 2020, America will once again have the highest proportion of college graduates in the world, and community colleges will produce an additional 5 million graduates. Additionally, in 2011, the Michigan Community College Association, with the support of the Kresge Foundation, launched the Michigan Center for Student Success to support emerging and ongoing efforts at individual colleges to improve student outcomes. After a considerable amount of activity at the local, state, and national levels, the 2014 Summit will focus on what's been accomplished, what challenges remain, and how we can work together to continue this important work.The annual Student Success Summit will feature national expertise and emerging best practices from Michigan community colleges on issues related to student access and success.September 18, 201410:30 AM - 11:30 AM Registration11:30 AM - 1:15 PM Opening Luncheon and Plenary Session Keynote: Gretchen Schmidt, Program Director, Jobs for the Future1:30 PM - 2:45 PM Discussion Sessions Special Delivery Increasing Completion Shaping Student Success Leveraging Technology Solutions Career and College Readiness in Michigan Aligning National Frameworks & Toolkits with Statewide, Grassroots Career Pathway Strategies Turning Knowledge into Success Sucessful Student on-Boarding for Long Term Success Vendor Spotlight Session - Burning Glass2:45 PM - 3:15 PM Networking Break3:15 PM - 4:30 PM Discussion Sessions Looking Back to the Future: Customizing the ALP to promote Student Success at LCC and KVCC Reinventing the Student Entry Process through Distributed Leadership MAT2 "Coopeition" Partnership of Competitors to Achieve a Common Goal & Support Student Success Workforce Wrapping our Heads around Poverty and Equity Leveraging Video Technologies to Improve Student Engagement and Improve Active Learning Credit When it's Due: Lessons Learned about Reverse Transfer and Next Steps Faculty Mentor Program: Uniting the Efforts of Faculty and Staff for Student Success 4:30 PM - 6:00 PM College Team Time/Reception Dinner on your ownSeptember 19, 20147:45 AM - 8:15 AM Continental Breakfast 8:15 AM - 9:15 AM Day Two Plenary Session Keynote: Tina Gridiron, The Lumina Foundation Caroline Altman Smith, The Kresge Foundation Carol Lincoln, Achieving the Dream9:30 AM - 10:45 AM Discussion Sessions Liberal Education and America's Promise: An Emerging Partnership ALP Replication Research project: Implications for ALP Initiatives in Michigan Leveraging Analytics to Improve Student Success Street Completion: Utilizing Existing Support Services to Increase Student Success Start-to-Finish: Strategies and Outcomes for Serving Our Least Prepared/Most Vulnerable Students Engaged Academic Literacy for All: Creating a Michigan Statewide Reading Apprenticeship Community of Practice Vendor Spotlight Session - College Scheduler, LLC10:45 AM - 11:15 AM Networking Break11:15 AM - 12:30 PM Discussion Sessions Achieving the Dream: The Experience and Interventions at Michigan's Leader Colleges Small Steps in Technology to Make a Better Connection with Students Multiple Measures Assessment at Lake Michigan College Contextualization + Acceleration = Completion Practical methods and Issues Using the Michigan P-20 data System Curriculum Alignment: Connecting w/Secondary Teachers through the Intermediate School District Using Nutrition to Enhance Student Performance Vendor Spotlight Sessions - ETS12:30 PM - 1:30 PM Closing Luncheon and Summit Wrap-upColleges are encouraged to bring a cross-functional team of 12 including faculty, student services staff, institutional researchers, and workforce development and academic administrators along with the president (presidents will not be included in the count of 12).
