"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.
