November 15, 9:00am-4:00pm | OLC Accelerate 2016 | Walt Disney World Swan & Dolphin Resort

This invitation-only workshop at OLC Accelerate  is focused on scaling solutions to the most pressing challenges that are threatening equity and access in higher education across the US. Four challenges have been identified and detailed in a special NMC call-to-action publication, with potential, evidence-based solutions in various stages. This event aims to move the needle of progress through a series of design thinking-inspired activities.


Working in teams, participants will develop institutional programs to implement challenge solutions, design frameworks to measure success, and share ideas on reaching decision-makers to scale solutions across Higher Ed. Student ambassadors will provide invaluable perspectives in the discussions and activities to support improved retention and completion. Thought leaders will share inspirational “lightning talks.”

The Higher Ed challenges at the heart of the workshop include:

  • Financial Aid for Alternative Learning Opportunities
  • Supporting Adjunct Faculty through Tech Deployment
  • Integrating Student Data Across Platforms
  • Scaling Evidence-Based Methods Across Disciplines

***Space is limited! RSVP today. Once you’ve RSVPed, you’ll receive an email from NMC staff confirming your seat with a special code to formally register on the OLC Accelerate website.***
