Event: The 3rd Annual California College Affordability Summit hosted by the California Student Aid Commission (CSAC) will equip K-12 educators, high school counselors, college financial aid administrators, student advocates, and policy leaders with the information, resources, and tools at their disposal to be successful in the implementation of the new financial aid completion requirement for local educational agencies. This is a crucial time in California around its commitment to increase financial aid awareness and opportunities for low-income and first-generation students.
Session topics will cover the following areas:
The financial aid applications and resources
Best practices and how to engage parents
Beyond the financial aid application
Catch the recordings from the free, virtual conference from April 20-21, 2022.
On Wednesday, April 20 at 10:00 AM we’ll gather for Summer Melt Prevention: How Programs and Colleges Can Work Together presented by Meredith Curry, Executive Director of the Northern California College Promise Coalition (NCCPC) along with several members.
Supporting first-time college-going, low-income, and students of color as they prepare for and transition to college requires a warm and intentional handoff. The pandemic only increased the need for a strong, cross-disciplinary, coordinated care approach that includes on- and off-campus support teams. How can educators, colleges, and college access partners best provide these essential navigation resources? What do we know about students’ experiences with summer melt and why the warm hand-off is so critical to success?
The Northern California College Promise Coalition (NCCPC) and members Beyond12, OneGoal Bay Area, Richmond Promise, and Stockton Scholars will demonstrate how they combat summer melt through data-informed, student-centered programming. NCCPC and members will also explore how data-sharing with campus partners like Cal State East Bay can streamline financial and programmatic support, even in a pandemic. We’ll explore how together, we hope to see the lessening and then elimination of wage and wealth disparities in California by using this collective impact approach as a model for other regions and states.
