In-Person Conference Canceled

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the parameters of the recent Restore Illinois regional, five-phase plan to reopen Illinois, we will not be hosting the July 9th in-person College Changes Everything (CCE) Conference®.

As we all continue to adapt, plan, and respond to the new challenges brought by the pandemic, we are working to determine how we might best provide sessions and speakers to support efforts across the state that promote college access and success and career readiness for students. Stay tuned for more details as we'll be providing updates on the 2020 CCE Conference website and in future e-Messages.

We understand this is a challenging time for schools, colleges and universities, and other organizations and their students and staff as they are adapting to remote learning and work environments, in addition to all the other aspects of the COVID-19 pandemic. We encourage you to visit ISAC's web page, entitled College-Going and Financial Aid Resources and Services During the Coronavirus Outbreak, for information on how ISAC can assist you and your students and families during the current circumstances.
