30-009: Completion Spotlight Update: Harper College

Sunday, April 22, 2012: 4:30 PM-5:30 PM
Grand Ballroom-Salon 11 (Orlando World Center Marriott)

Program Description: Do you ever wonder whether the colleges that set a completion goal actually increase their rate of completion? Harper College presented its completion goal in a spotlight session last year. This year, Harper is back to report being more than 800 degrees ahead of schedule. The speakers will share how Harper aligned the strategic plan to ensure completion, implemented jump-start strategies that put us ahead of schedule, and is planning for long-term policy changes to institutionalize a completion focus. They will also discuss the unique role that certificates play in increasing the completion rate and success of Harper students.
