"We're thrilled to receive the SEMILLAS grant, and committed to promoting Latino student success by replicating our most promising and innovative programs."
With a growing number of students - many being first-generation and underserved - entering college through two-year institutions, how can campuses assure that all students receive the support and learning experiences they need to seamlessly transition from secondary through post secondary education? Participants will join with colleagues from a range of institutions to examine research and policy perspectives on the pipeline and transition issues they and their students face. They will discuss the components necessary for effective transfers and evidence for high impact practices that are successfully advancing student achievement from first year seminars to capstone experiences.

Student Success: Pushing Boundaries, Raising Bars will examine new interpretations of student success in the 21st century; review the latest analysis of today's students and how they learn; feature high-impact practices in teaching and learning; and provide innovative strategies for supporting and rewarding faculty innovation and leadership for pushing boundaries and raising bars so that all students achieve their highest aspirations for success in college and beyond. It will seek to answer how American higher education can foster and maintain the quality of educational excellence that will adequately prepare all students to meet the evolving needs of employers and solve the unscripted problems of the 21st century - as budgets are being slashed and programs long considered central to the undergraduate experience are being cut.
