Meeting Title: Strategies to Engage Adult Learners to Increase Postsecondary Attainment Equity in Illinois RSVP HERE
Description: Join the Illinois 60 by 25 Network Organizers and our partners for a discussion on strategies to engage adult learners to increase postsecondary attainment equity in Illinois.
Our current and projected data show that that much will need to be done to address gaps throughout the cradle-to-career pipeline and ensure equitable postsecondary attainment for all Illinoisans. Critical to closing these gaps and achieving emerging equity targets will be engaging more adults in education and training to obtain valuable postsecondary credentials and degrees that will help them access high-quality employment.
In this webinar, representatives from IBHE, ICCB and OAI will discuss their strategies, and share resources and lessons learned for engaging adult learners. There will also be an opportunity to ask questions.
Date: Wednesday, October 6th from 10:30 a.m. – noon

Join us to learn from local and national leaders about current efforts including the Illinois Mental Health Early Action Act, the role of peers in mental wellness and how higher educations and non-profits are working toward systems change.
Date: Wednesday, November 3rd from 10:30 a.m. – noon
