The value of a college education is essential to individual opportunity and national competitiveness. Today’s national dialogue reflects this in many ways, from questions about how much college is needed, to whether college is affordable or not, to differences in who goes to college.
In this context, setting goals for college attainment helps to focus public dialogue, identify barriers to completion and attainment, and target resources to specific challenges. Yet, an analysis of educational attainment goals raises questions about who is served? What educational institutions get resources? And how is success measured based on the different beneficiaries?
Educational Testing Service (ETS), American Council on Education (ACE) and Diverse: Issues in Higher Education are excited to address these questions and more in a forum titled: “Why the Nation Needs to Do College Attainment Better.” We invite you to join us and hear perspectives from a diverse group of higher education thought leaders.
June 18-21: Study topics in-depth at summer school
The CFT Union Summer School equips local leaders with the powerful skills to organize successful campaigns to build high-quality public education, involve members in union activities, increase the political voice of educators and establish excellent representation and collective bargaining programs.
The program is geared for emerging and veteran local leaders who want to take their skills to the next level. The week is filled with rigorous workshops, motivated and skilled trainers, and applied learning. There is also the opportunity to share best practices with local leaders from across the state and to find inspiration in one another’s work. Join us for this exciting week-long, union leadership program!
Summer School will take place at UCLA's Luskin Conference Center. This year we are offering four courses, including one new class. In addition, we are offering a new two-day course for union teams. There are also evening workshops.
Training includes a new two-day course for local union teams, June 20-21 (Wednesday mid-morning through Thursday evening).

Designing, Implementing, and Facilitating Faculty Learning Communities
Evidence shows that Faculty Learning Communities (FLCs) provide effective “deep learning” that encourages and supports faculty to investigate and engage new (to them) methods of teaching and to assess resulting change in student learning. Implementation Science confirms that FLCs provide the most effective way to implement and sustain teaching and learning innovations for faculty and staff. This institute will guide faculty and administrators interested in FLCs through issues and examples of the design, implementation, and facilitation of FLCs.
