The USC Center for Enrollment Research, Policy, and Practice hosts the annual "go to" event for the nation's leading policy makers and practitioners in college readiness, admission, and success. Each event explores in depth potential "game changing" issues in college access and success. Recent conferences have examined The Case for Change in College Admissions, 21st Century Knowledge & Skills: The New High School Curriculum and the Future of Assessment, and Attributes That Matter: Beyond the Usual in College Admission and Success, the latter a thoroughgoing examination of non-cognitive factors such as determination, creativity, conscientiousness, and ability to negotiate obstacles, bureaucracies, and unfamiliar settings.
Following directly on these noteworthy events will be Defining Merit: The Nexus of Mission, Excellence, and Diversity. How should the mission and purpose of a college or university guide the consideration of personal accomplishments and characteristics beyond the SAT and high school grades? How can doing so inform decision makers which students are most likely to contribute to and benefit from its unique mission and purpose? Which of these factors portend success in the classroom, in careers, and in building a strong democratic society? How may K-12 education change if colleges signal greater emphasis and value on characteristics for success in a more complex and interdependent society?
We look forward to seeing you here in January!
