Moving from Random Acts of Data to Purposeful Analysis in Context
Kelly Hogan, Executive Director College Completion, Title III Grant, Columbus State Community College
Diana Wisse, Executive Director Student Affairs Assessment, Columbus State Community College

“In one ear and out the other.” We shake our heads helplessly when new information is not remembered, when there are studies that confirm we better remember what we see and touch than what we hear. Intentionally engaging students in active and collaborative learning strategies in the classroom is trending for a reason – and these effective strategies can be used to impact the institution more broadly by implementing them in campus engagement activities.

12th Grade Redesign...Coming Together with a Local High School to Serve Underprepared Students
Jennifer King, Student Success Coach, Zane State College
Heather Shepherd, Assistant Dean - Provost's Office, Zane State College

Zane State College has partnered with a local high school to create a transformative, new pathway for underprepared high school seniors needing specific supports. Our unique program is 1 of 3 in the Nation. This project is premised on the belief that students who have yet to decide their pathway would benefit from post secondary course exposure, accelerated developmental education opportunities, and college and career planning. The cohort model is the cornerstone of this effort.
