Special Sessions on Corequisite Courses and Developmental Education

No Room for Doubt: Moving Corequisite Support from Idea to Imperative
Monday, June 28, 2021 - 4:00 - 5:00 PM

Presented by Bradon Protas, Strategy Director with Complete College America

Corequisite support has been demonstrated to increase student success at multiple levels and reduce or even eliminate institutional performance gaps for racially minoritized students. Complete College America will share learnings from their recent publication, No Room for Doubt: Moving Corequisite Support from Idea to Imperative, which is informed by their work to scale corequisite support in more than a dozen states. This will include best practices for shifting policy, creating conditions for change, implementing proven strategies, and refining those approaches over time.
