'Advising and the Completion Agenda' webinar
The first National Academic Advising Association webinar for the fall semester is "Advising and the Completion Agenda: Key Voices in Higher Education" at 1 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 9. The webinar will be in Room 226 at the K-State Student Union.
Higher education associations and national agencies are promoting President Obama's goal to increase the number of students who complete degrees, certificates and other credentials by 2020. These associations and funding agencies are supporting institutions that promote degree completion. These efforts are not restricted to the United States, but are part of the international higher education picture as well.
This webinar will provide an overview of the major issues that are a part of the completion agenda. Join us for a compelling hourlong discussion about this critical trend in higher education.
The moderator is Jennifer Joslin, associate director of content development at the National Academic Advising Association. Panelists include:
- Andrew K. Koch, executive vice president of the John N. Gardner Institute for Excellence in Undergraduate Education at Brevard College;
- Dominique Raymond, vice president of Alliance State Relations at Complete College America; and
- Charlie Nutt, executive director at the National Academic Advising Association.
