All Ky3C members are invited to attend the 2017 Institute for a College-Going Commonwealth on June 7 – 8, 2017 FREE OF CHARGE.
The 2017 Institute for a College-Going Commonwealth will bring together the diverse voices and perspectives of GEAR UP students and their key influencers to explore what it truly takes to ensure students are prepared for success in postsecondary education and/or the workforce – academically, financially, culturally, socially and emotionally. National and state experts and facilitators will lead interactive sessions to explore student success through three themes over this two-day event:
- READINESS: Students are academically and financially prepared for postsecondary education
- RESILIENCE: Students are socially and emotionally capable of succeeding in postsecondary education
- RELEVANCE: Students find the value of education and understand its relationship to their goals
The first day is designed for audience-specific tracks focused on academic and financial readiness, with specific, separate sessions for parents, counselors/advisors, and education professionals and all audiences will come together for a kickoff luncheon, GEAR UP Student Ambassador poster session reception, and a special awards dinner.
The next Ky3C meeting will be held during this two-day conference on Friday, June 9, 10:45 am – 12 noon (CT). This meeting will provide the opportunity for Ky3C members to meet our new Ky3C Coordinator ando reconnect and kick-start our newly focused agenda together.
Join us and bring your colleagues and staff. Hope to see you in June!
