About the Conference
Continuing our focus on student success, the AASCU Academic
Affairs Winter Meeting will examine ways for institutions to make the pathway
through college less complicated and more straightforward, not just for those
who enter as freshmen, but also for transfer students. We, along with the many others who are
engaged in pathways work around the country, believe that being clear about the
paths that students should take will increase the number of students who
graduate, while reducing the time and money it takes to complete an
undergraduate degree. Our meeting will
explore the full range of pathways work that is occurring on today’s college
campuses—from meta-majors, to general education reform, and beyond—with a
particular emphasis on how to successfully implement pathways initiatives at
In addition to our special focus
on pathways, the Academic Affairs Winter Meeting will also feature an array of
other topics of concern to the academic community, including new designs for
the first year of college; new models of transfer student support; new
approaches to advising, program prioritization and course re-design; and innovations
in civic engagement, faculty recruitment, professional development, academic
program development, international education, learning outcomes assessment,
creating an optimal learning environment, et cetera.
For more information about the
structure of the meeting, please take a look at our preliminary schedule.
