The Oregon Department of Community Colleges and the Oregon University System continues the work on student success with the goal of meeting the State Board of Education vision for Oregon 40-40-20. As part of this work, the colleges will engage in two statewide conferences in October, 2011.
The October 20th conference is focused on developing systems and practices that support students completing their associate and bachelor degrees. This project titled Win-Win is funded through a Lumina Foundation grant to the Oregon Department of Community Colleges and Workforce Development (CCWD) and the 17 Oregon Community Colleges.
October 21st will focus on student learning and the development of a nested framework for degree outcomes. the Lumina foundation published a report titled, The Degree Qualification Profile, by authors Cliff Adelman, Peter Ewell, Paul Gaston, and Carol Geary Schneider. Oregon Department of Community Colleges and the Oregon University System has jointly submitted a letter of intent to Lumina to fund the beta-testing of this framework.
The keynote speaker, Clifford Adelman, co-author of the Lumina report, The Degree Qualification Profile, is a senior associate with the Institute for Higher Education Policy (IHEP) since October 2006 and he plays a senior role in the organization’s expansive national and international portfolio of research projects focusing on assessment, higher education access, and student mobility. He also expands upon subjects that have been a focus throughout much of his career including degree completion rates, standardized testing, transfer patterns, and the role of community colleges.
