Don't Forget – Submit Your CCE Conference Proposal


2024 College Changes Everything Conference
Community Health
July 18, 2024 – Tinley Park Convention Center

Please play an active role in helping make the 2024 College Changes Everything® (CCE) conference a valuable peer-to-peer learning experience by submitting an interest session proposal to share your insights, experiences, and creative solutions.

One of the significant strengths of the conference comes from sessions developed and led by dedicated educators and professionals like you that highlight programs, resources, and partnerships impacting student success. Each year the conference draws a broad group of concerned stakeholders, and this year we're showcasing the role of community health on educational equity. We encourage proposals addressing a wide range of issues related to, but not limited to: college and career readiness; student retention, persistence, and completion; education, business, and the economy; supporting marginalized student populations; college costs and affordability; and leveraging community resources. Session proposals should also explain how the information shared contributes to community health. Attendees look for sessions that provide in-depth information, practical ideas, and best practices and specific strategies. You're invited to complete the online session proposal form (more information about interest session submission is available on the conference web page).

Deadline – Priority consideration will be given to complete session proposals submitted by April 8, 2024.

We look forward to seeing you on July 18, 2024, at the Tinley Park Convention Center, Tinley Park, Illinois. Registration for the conference will open later this spring. Please share this e-Message with colleagues in your organizations and others in your network.
