Tackling Transitions: Supporting Community College Student Success
Thursday-Friday, September 29-30, 2016
Lansing Center, Lansing MI
Community colleges serve a diverse mission. The widespread Guided Pathways movement has reinforced the importance of serving all students who pursue an education at a community college. Indeed, Michigan community colleges serve a wide diversity of students from high school students enrolled in dual, concurrent, or early/middle college programs, students who wish to transfer to four-year institutions, students preparing for a career, and adults who are returning to college with or after work. The 2016 Student Success Summit will focus on how community colleges are addressing student transitions while continuing to focus on equity and inclusion. To meet the diverse mission of community colleges, the theme for the 2016 conference is "Tackling Transitions: Supporting Community College Student Success."
