Putting it all Together: Campus Strategy for Access, Retention, and Completion

Successful college completion is essential to the future of the students we serve and to the society they inhabit. Retaining and graduating the students who enroll in higher education institutions has become more and more important for both students and institutions, which is why this years’ conference is focused even more on highlighting exemplary practices. It is imperative that we share best practices and innovative strategies for access, retention and completion.

For the past four years, Oakland University has hosted and The Kresge Foundation has sponsored an annual statewide student success conference with keynotes by major practitioners in the field and a forum for discussion and sharing of best practices. This year the conference is going regional and will feature major keynote speakers such as Dr. Vincent Tinto and Dr. Tia Brown McNair as well as workshops by award winning universities and community colleges that have demonstrated success in student persistence and completion.

We look forward to seeing you at the conference!
