CCE 2017: Equity in College and Career Readiness Initiatives – Ensuring That All Students Are Equipped for Success

The seventh annual College Changes Everything® (CCE) conference is the state’s premier college access and success event. This one day conference focuses on effective practices and showcases resources available to help with increasing college access and college completion for students in support of the state’s Goal 2025 – to increase the proportion of adults in Illinois with high-quality college degrees and postsecondary credentials to 60% by the year 2025.

This year's conference provides the opportunity to further examine our shared responsibility to integrate and implement pro-equity practices in how we deliver the myriad of college access and success and career readiness efforts assisting students in our state.  As we consider the various student populations that will help our state achieve Goal 2025, it's essential we recognize the different needs and requirements some populations have, as well as the obstacles and barriers they face. We must review policies, practices, and systems to ensure they include a pro-equity perspective and address fundabmental causes of any inequities. In addition, we need to look at how we can reduce or eliminate opportunity gaps to improve outcomes for underrepresented students – including, but not limited to, low-income students, first-generation students, minority students, students with special needs, working adults, and laid-off adults – and how we can engage all students in ways that are inclusive, culturally responsive, and socially just. Our success as a state depends upon all students having the opportunities to reach their fullest potential.
