Wed, 03/30/2016

As stakeholders across higher education—from institutional leaders to policymakers—become increasingly aware of the importance of adult learners in meeting their attainment goals, some states have launched coordinated outreach efforts to attract adults who have left postsecondary education to return and complete a credential. The webinar will feature an overview of Indiana’s You Can. Go Back. campaign and Tennessee’s Drive to 55 initiative as it related to adult learners.  Representatives from Indiana’s Commission for Higher Education and Tennessee’s Higher Education Commission will discuss how they developed effective messaging, built relationships with participating institutions, and how they are tracking the success of their respective efforts.
