Location: San Antonio, TX
Venue: Harry B. Gonzalez Convention Center | 214D

The past decade of experimentation and research in the college completion movement has led to the inescapable conclusion that it is time for both states and community colleges to be more systematic, serious, and organized about designing visionary, integrated reforms to be implemented at scale. This session featured a discussion of how both states and colleges can design and launch the level of transformative reforms needed to achieve meaningful and equitable results for students at scale.
