Pioneer Partners from 40 Institutions Learning Together
Last February, leaders from more than 20 Pioneer Partners came to Austin to participate in the Civitas Learning Inaugural Summit. Since then, our community has grown! Our September Summit included more than 100 leaders in higher education from more than 40 partner institutions. Summits bring together the best of four-year, two-year, nonprofit, proprietary and private sector institutions working with Civitas Learning. This dynamic group of chancellors, presidents, vice presidents and other university leaders meet in Austin to discuss the work they are doing together, and separately, in insight and action analytics in order to measurably improve student success. We thank our partners who provided remarks and shared learnings during this invitation-only event September 16 and 17 at the AT&T Conference Center.
