ACHE Webinar Series: March 6
A Successful Postsecondary Mix: Credit for Prior Learning, Completion Concierges, and Corporate Partnerships
This session will outline the strategies developed by the University of Memphis over the last 15 years to reach and support adult learners on their journey to a postsecondary credential. The strategies include robust Credit for Prior Learning (CPL) opportunities, a degree completion program launched in 2013 to reach adult learners who stopped attending just shy of earning their bachelor’s degree, and corporate partnerships that remove as many barriers as possible so that employees can fully utilize their tuition assistance benefits. The presenter will reflect on the evolution of the strategies, outline challenges and significant achievements to date, and look ahead to what’s on the horizon. You will hear real case scenarios and leave with tips on how to incorporate these strategies in both the credit and noncredit divisions at your institution.
