Be the Change!

Help Be the Change! by submitting an interest session proposal for the 2020 College Changes Everything® (CCE) conference. One of the things that makes this conference so valuable to its attendees are the interest sessions developed and led by dedicated educators and professionals like you. Please consider sharing your insights, experiences, and creative solutions by submitting a proposal showcasing programs, services, resources, and partnerships impacting student success.

Since we will have a broad group of stakeholders attending the conference, we are encouraging proposals that cover a wide range of themes related to college access and completion such as, but not limited to: college and career readiness; student retention, persistence, and completion; 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. Please 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 completed session proposal forms submitted by February 28, 2020.

The 2020 CCE conference takes place on July 9, 2020 at the Tinley Park Convention Center, Tinley Park, Illinois. Additional information about the conference can be found on the conference web page.

Please consider sharing this call for proposals with your colleagues and other partners.
