ED will host the second in a series of four Community College Regional Summits on March 9, 2011, at Lone Star College-University Park in Houston, Texas.
The Regional Community College Summit will:
- Bring federal, labor and industry, and philanthropic partners to your region to discuss how each entity can support local community college efforts to meet the President’s 2020 goal for the U.S. to once again have the highest proportion of college graduates in the world;
- Provide a forum to share institution-level barriers, solutions and promising practices in college completion; developmental education; industry-education partnerships; services to military service-members and veterans; transitioning adults to community colleges; and successful transfer programs to four year colleges and universities; and
- Provide a forum to identify local, state and national recommendations for increasing community college completion to meet the 2020 goal.
The morning plenary session begins at 10:00 a.m. EST. The afternoon closing session will begin at 4:15 p.m. EST. Both sessions will be broadcast live at: http://hosted.mediasite.com/mediasite/Catalog/catalogs/Lonestar.aspx
