​13th Annual ue symposium // oct. 20, 2017

Symposium Theme: "All Together Now! - Collaborating for Student Success"


Keynote Speaker: After a decade of intense investment in improving student success, national graduation rates have increased just two points. Yet some institutions are improving much faster than others. What sets them apart? Dr. Ed Venit, Managing Director from EAB, shared new research, examples form other universities, and specific data-driven practices that separate the highest-performing and most progressive institutions from the rest.


Agenda and highlights: See the agenda, presentations, and documents from the symposium here. CU Denver speakers presented mini tED-Talks on these topics: A Recipe for Student Success, Great Teaching and Student Success, Academic Advising for Student Success, Collaborating for Inclusive Excellence in Science, and Inclusive Excellence and Student Success. At the afternoon Working Tables, attendee recommendations included: implement Math Pathways, prioritize teaching and instructional quality, provide consistent advisor training and lower advisor-to-student ratio, and build inclusive excellence, among others.
