2018 Social Mobility Summit Convenes in Portland, July 11-12

The annual Social Mobility Summit brings student success professionals from colleges and universities across the country to share best practices for supporting student success in higher education.

The goal of the Social Mobility Summit is to address one of the most pressing issues of our time: higher education's role in advancing social mobility in order to stem the growing economic disparity in our country. The two-day event includes round table discussions and individual presentations on methods for best educating economically disadvantaged students and preparing them to succeed beyond college, and for getting communities and legislators on board.

Each of the professionals participating in the Summit has their own story to tell about their groundbreaking programs and initiatives for supporting student success. CollegeNET is pleased to host these innovators as they share their ideas and concerns, and help them have a voice beyond their institutions.

Participating institutions:

Baruch College, New York
California State University, Northridge
California State Polytechnic University, Pomona

University of California, Irvine
University of California, Santa Cruz
Wichita State University, Kansas
