Still Time to Submit Your CCE Conference Proposal


2024 College Changes Everything Conference

Community Health

Time is running out to submit an interest session proposal for the 2024 College Changes Everything® (CCE) conference before the priority consideration deadline of Monday, April 15, 2024. One of the things that makes this annual event so valuable to its attendees is the interest sessions developed and led by dedicated educators and professionals like you. We invite you to complete the online session proposal form to showcase the work you do that contributes to student success. Thanks, again, to those of you who have already submitted a proposal.

We encourage proposals covering a wide range of themes related to college access and completion such as, but not limited to: college and career readiness; programs and services for underrepresented students; student wellness and emotional support; student retention, persistence, and completion; career and technical education; education, business, and the economy; and college costs and affordability. Sessions should provide in-depth information, practical ideas, and specific strategies for the audience, and demonstrate and promote positive steps taken to address college access, completion issues, and career readiness and sharing of specific lessons learned. Session proposals should also explain how the information shared contributes to community health. Please complete the online session proposal form on the conference web page, where you'll also find additional event information.

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 the information in this e-Message with colleagues in your organization and others in your network.
