MnSCU Academic and Student Affairs (ASA) has awarded a $10,000 grant for MCTC, in partnership with other MnSCU schools, to host a day-long summit this fall on developmental education best practices.
This winter, MnSCU ASA invited all MnSCU institutions to submit proposals to receive a grant of up to $10,000 per proposal for regional educational summits for developmental education. Three grants were awarded.
Normandale Community College, in collaboration with Century College, Dakota County Technical College, Inver Hills Community College and MCTC, will host a day-long summit on developmental education focused on highlighting best practices both nationally and locally. The summit, with support of the institutional partnerships, will be action-oriented with a significant portion of the day dedicated to providing each implementation team with a planning session facilitated by compression planning facilitators. Teams will then identify key issues they wish to address at their institutions and will develop detailed communication and action plans tailored to their college’s needs. The summit will include a keynote presentation from Dr. Hunter Boylen and provide each institution time to share best practices.
