The Strengthening Student Success Conference provides a unique opportunity for a wide cross-section of California Community College professionals — including faculty, deans, student services staff, IRPE, and more — to engage each other on strategies for increasing equitable outcomes, institutional effectiveness, leadership capacity, and more. The conference has been designed to promote interactive learning, build connections with your peers, and provide opportunities to hear perspectives from other disciplines. In addition to interactive sessions, informative briefings, and inspirational plenary presentations, participants have the opportunity to dig into pressing community college issues, join half-day intensive workshops, and spend time networking.
