3rd Annual Tipping Point Student Success Summit: Virtual Realities

January 20, 2021

It has been a year of sudden disruptions, real-time adaptations, and wildly imaginative innovations. Under the broad theme of “Virtual Realities,” this year’s Tipping Point Summit provides an opportunity for all of us—faculty, staff, students, and administrators—to learn from each other in a stress-free day of mini-presentations and discussions. Multiple short student video reflections throughout the day will teach us, hold us accountable, and inspire us. A drive-up boxed lunch pick-up will be available to the first 300 registrants.
