Complete College America’s ACT: Policy & Action Summit is where the magic happens. Where ideas come to life, decisions are made, and plans for impact take shape. The Summit sits as the intersection of our work to build movements & transform institutions. Many of the most celebrated student success strategies reached new heights as state teams of higher education leaders and policymakers came together: Time to Degree, Corequisite Support, Guided Pathways, and more.

This year, we’re reigniting this iconic event for the first time in 5 years. At ACT, we’ll explore the critical relationship between policy and practice, acts and action. You won’t want to miss this opportunity to learn about CCA’s Game Changers 2.0 and the critical role of systems change in driving equitable education and economic outcomes. We hope to see you this summer in Louisville!

Full agenda coming soon.
