Description

"Funded by the Nellie Mae Education Foundation, Project Compass is a multi-campus, multi-year initiative. It supports four public, four-year colleges engaged in institution-level change essential to expanding, sustaining, and integrating rigorous, evidence-based efforts to retain underserved students. Presenters will discuss the development of campus-based communities of practice; the development of dynamic logic models assuring measurable outcomes; the formation of a cross-campus learning community; and the uniquely engaged, collaborative role established between the Foundation’s intermediary and funded campuses. They will also share formative findings. Participants will engage in a collaborative learning activity that applies the structure and underlying principles of the initiative to their home campuses. Discussion will include resources, questions, and promising practices for institutionalizing sustainable approaches to underserved student success."
