Ready to View – CCE Conference Recordings


2021 College Changes Everything Conference
Session Recordings and Presentations Available

On behalf of the Conference Planning Committee, we want to thank the over 1,000 attendees and session speakers who participated in the 2021 College Changes Everything® (CCE) conference to examine and discuss issues related to this year's conference theme: Fostering Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging for the Success of All Learners. Interest session recordings and presentation files from the virtual conference are now available on the 2021 CCE conference website.

While we miss the in-person interactions that have grown to be a key part of the conference, we are pleased that we were still able to come together online to share information and resources from state and national experts that can help you in your work in supporting student success. The conference provided an opportunity for stakeholders to explore the short and long-term outcomes of our policies, programs, and structures as we strive to meet the needs of all learners and to help them contribute to stronger communities and a more inclusive workforce and economy. The conference also supports the state's Goal 2025 – to increase the proportion of adults in Illinois with high quality degrees and postsecondary credentials to 60% by the year 2025.

Note: If you registered and attended the online conference via the Whova platform, you can still access the Whova conference web app for up to three months and the Whova conference mobile app for up to six months after the conference.
