The inaugural National Student Success Conference is slated to take place February 21-23 at the Grand Hyatt Tampa Bay.
The event is a collaboration between the Florida Consortium of Metropolitan Research Universities and the University of South Florida, and this year’s theme is “Innovators and Innovations.”
Driven by metrics, accountability measures, or simply the desire to enrich the undergraduate student experience, colleges and universities have transformed the way student success is considered and practiced.
