The Council convenes interested staff for conversations around student success. We have held one-day Forums that provided meaningful professional development opportunities for interested staff; participants have come from student affairs, academic affairs, multicultural affairs, career services and other areas. A planning group of staff from our institutions provides ongoing guidance for this work.

Given the limitations on in-person meetings that emerged in 2020, we have moved to virtual conversations. Topics this year have included student orientations, deans of students’ needs and how to best support student connections when working online.

If you would like to be on the Council’s student success listserv, which is used sparingly, largely to share opportunities with staff, please email Lisa Thompson.

If you have questions or feedback about any way colleges want to collaborate around student success, please contact John Manning, the Council’s director of communications ([email protected] or 651-228-9061).
