CONNECTED is a unique opportunity for us to honor and share the incredible work our members have done to impact student success across the year.

The deadline for submissions has passed. If you submitted a proposal, you will be notified of our selection decisions by the end of July.

Submission types:

1. Case study

Is your institution ready for the spotlight? A case study is a robust member story with quantifiable results (e.g. improvement in retention or graduation rate) enabled in part by SSC. If your case study submission is selected, EAB will help you craft a 45-60 minute presentation for CONNECTED.

2. Value story

Where have you seen value? In addition to case studies, we are looking for value stories to profile in a variety of ways at the event. (EAB will share selected value stories in a variety of ways, including but not limited to: posters, research presentations, and videos). These stories are preferably SSC-related with results; however, “results” can be small in scale or qualitative in nature, and may include a successful campaign or change on campus. Unlike those selected for the case study presentations, members whose value stories are selected will not necessarily present at the event.

3. "ConnectED Talk"

Do you have something innovative to teach your peers? We are looking for members who are interested in sharing an innovative idea, practice, or story in a short "talk" (5 to 10 minutes) inspired by the famous TED Talks. In order to submit, you must have a desire to share your idea, story, practice, or findings with the full CONNECTED audience. This session will look and feel different from our traditional case studies and is meant to encourage innovation and risk taking. Your submission should be student success related but not necessarily tied to SSC.

Examples include:
• An innovative idea to improve student success
• An out-of-the-box practice or initiative on your campus
• Interesting findings from a recent student survey or research study
• A personal story related to student success
