NEBHE will present two webinars demonstrating new Student Flow Degree Attainment Projection Models that could help the states develop plans for increasing postsecondary attainment.
The models created by the National Center for Higher Education Management Systems (NCHEMS) on behalf of NEBHE’s New England 2025 project provide an important framework, conceptual model and statistical tool for estimating the impact of policy changes on degree attainment, benchmarked to national goals and other indicators.
NEBHE’s New England 2025 project is focused on helping the six New England states develop and execute effective strategies to increase postsecondary attainment, particularly for low-income and minority populations, over the next 15 years.
These webinars will provide a sneak peek at how the projection models can help a state maintain and improve degree attainment.
Patrick Kelly, director of NCHEMS National Information Center, will conduct a live demonstration of the models. NEBHE will also outline the process by which organizations in New England can apply to obtain and use the models.
Direct RSVPs and questions to Matt Crellin, NEBHE’s director of Policy and Research, at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 617.357.9620 ext. 130.
The webinars will be held on Wednesday, July 14, 2010 at 1 p.m. EST, and Monday, July 19, at 2 p.m. EST at www.nebhe.org/ne2025. (Note: The content of the two webinars is the same; you may choose to attend the one that is most convenient for you.)
