Event description

Description

We invite your team to join your peer institutions from across the Civitas at our spring Illume workshop, hosted at Civitas HQ in Austin, TX!

At this event, student success teams spend two days "digging deep" in Illume to identify opportunities and learn a step-by-step process for building student intervention plan. Your team will walk away inspired and ready to take action on your campus.

This intimate experience is a collaborative space for your teams to discuss what’s working to dramatically move the needle on student outcomes using Illume as well as to foster community and exchange ideas with peer institutions.

Agenda: Tuesday, April 9

Day 1 opens with introductions and story sharing with your peers, followed by a working session focused on identifying the best opportunities for intervention with your student group in Illume. We conclude the session with a sneak-peek presentation into new and upcoming features in Illume. The evening ends with a community dinner where your team can socialize with your peers and the Civitas workshop team.

FAQs

Who should attend an Illume workshop?
Roles best suited for attending the Illume workshop include advising leadership, primary Civitas Learning partnership/project champions, and individuals who own either student communication strategies or student success initiatives. To attend, your institution must have already launched and trained on Illume.

How many people should attend from my institution?
For an optimal workshop experience, we highly recommend that your team send 3 - 4 student success leaders (the minimum per institution is 2 participants, the maximum is 4).

What does my team need to do to prepare for this workshop?
Workshop preparation involves selecting a student group to work with to develop your intervention plan around.

Once your team completes registration, you will receive a confirmation email from me (Morgan Witt) with details on next steps. Your Civitas facilitator (assigned to your group for the workshop) will be following up with more information and will be coordinating with you to prepare for the workshop.
