See You in New Orleans to Advance Student Success!
Clearinghouse staff members are traveling to New Orleans for AACRAO’s Technology & Transfer Conference on July 9-11 to help higher education leaders with student success, transfer, and outcomes, especially as institutions recruit and retain diverse, knowledgeable, and mobile populations.
“The Clearinghouse and the Research Center, which sponsor the conference, desire to hear your challenges and improve student success and institutional effectiveness in innovative, transformational ways,” said Jonell Sanchez, Vice President of the Clearinghouse’s Education Services. “Meet with us at booth #303 or during one of our sessions so we can listen to your needs and share with you all the ways we are working to help you be successful, like our new StudentTracker Premium Service.”
Clearinghouse sessions include:
Sunday, July 9 from 1-2 pm, Gallier Room
The transfer pathway from community college to a bachelor’s degree has never been more important, but it remains ineffective for too many students. A 2016 report by researchers at Teachers College, Aspen Institute and the National Student Clearinghouse Research Center introduced a new lens for understanding and measuring transfer student outcomes at the state level, and also for sending and receiving institutions. In this session, you will learn about the data and research, then discover how updated benchmarks coming from the Research Center in September will enable you to measure and compare your own institution’s transfer partnerships using the latest national and state-level metrics.
Sunday, July 9 from 2:15-3:15 pm, Bayside B Room
