2023 College Completion Convening

October 24th – 25th, 2023

101 Constitution Ave. NW #900, Washington, DC 20001

The 2023 Comprehensive Approaches to Student Success Convening will bring together higher education practitioners, researchers, and policy professionals to identify policy conditions needed to improve college completion with comprehensive supports, especially for Black, Latinx, Indigenous, and AAPI students from low-income and rural communities.

As an invitee, you will have the opportunity to collaborate with thought and policy leaders from higher education, state, and federal policy organizations, institutions, and completion programs on strategies to enhance the availability and implementation of evidence-based comprehensive supports (CASS), particularly at Rural Institutions, Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), Predominantly Black Institutions (PBIs), Hispanic Serving Institutions (HSIs) and Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs).

We look forward to seeing you in October!
