We’re All Advocates—Continuing the Momentum

With an upcoming election that reshuffles the deck on both the state and federal levels, along with appointment of a new system chancellor—how can we build on our successes for the future? It’s our closing theme for the conference--taking all that we shared and learned—to enable new successes and hopes for our programs, our colleges, and our students.
