Supporting Student Success: First Year and Beyond!
November 3 - 5, 2021
The 33rd Annual Maricopa Community Colleges Student Success Conference brings together Maricopans of multiple roles and responsibilities to share strategies for supporting students on their higher education journeys. As we continue to navigate through the challenges and changes resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic, our community college system continues to meet the needs of our students and communities.
While all students need support, it is imperative to support our first-year students, as they continue to navigate a primarily virtual learning environment. This year’s conference will be in a virtual format for the second year in the row and will be spread across three days, focusing on embracing the first-year student learning outcomes used across the District to serve our students.
Approved for 6.0 clock hours of Faculty Professional Growth
For this virtual event, we will be using Webex Events for all sessions. In addition, we are providing captions for the keynote, plenary, and all breakout sessions.
Links to sessions
Links to all live sessions can be found on our Agenda page. You will be able to log into the sessions up to fifteen (15) minutes prior to the start of the session.
We will post recordings for all sessions on the Agenda page as soon as they are available; however, only MCCCD faculty, staff, and students will be able to access these recordings.
Breakout session materials
If presenters have provided MCLI with their session materials, they will be provided through our Breakout Session page.
