On behalf of Toyia Younger, Associate Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs
MnSCU and the Minnesota Department of Education (MDE) are offering a day-long workshop on Tuesday, December 8, 2015 to bring together MnSCU campuses, State Approved Alternative Program (SAAP) educators, and community stakeholders currently involved in Early or Middle College Programs with alternative programs or those interested in developing these types of partnerships. Participants will learn how to develop, implement and support early/middle college programs for off-track students to re-engage them through dual credit career pathway programming and with wrap-around services to support their success. Mamadou Ndiaye from Jobs for the Future will be sharing about the national landscape of these “Back on Track” models and MN partnerships that are already established will share their models and experiences in developing and launching these programs within their local context.
More information about Early or Middle College Programs and about this event, who should attend, and the registration information are in the letter. If your institution is already involved in this type of partnership OR is interested in developing this type of partnership, I encourage you to please register today.
