This goal was subsequently adopted by the state’s Workforce Development Council and supported by the S.D. Department of Education. It is important to note that the credentials included in this 65 percent goal represent the full range of post-secondary options: traditional four-year college degrees as well as two-year associate degrees, certificates and apprenticeships.

And, research shows that as much as 28 percent of transfer students lose between 10 percent and 89 percent of their credits when they transfer*. The Passport Streamlines the transfer process to keep students on the pathway to completion. (*Attewell and Monahan (2014), “The Community College Route to the Bachelor’s Degree")

        • WCET’s annual meeting continues to be one of the top-rated conferences in the country on e-learning in higher education. The conference program broadly captures a host of issues such as innovative uses of technology to enhance teaching, student retention, marketing, alumni relations, and student services.

        • WCET’s awards recognizes outstanding innovation, quality improvement, or achievements in using educational technology tools, techniques, or services by postsecondary institutions and organizations.

        • WCET has five focus areas - emerging technologies, faculty success, managing e-learning, policy and regulations, and student success - which contain resources such as talking points, Q&A, lessons learned, videos, and more.

        • The WCET Leadership Summits are designed to bring together educational leaders and practitioners from forward-thinking institutions and enterprises that are actively pursuing answers to the big questions in higher education.

        • WCET members can take advantage of two email lists – WCETNews and WCETDiscuss.  WCETNews is a moderated list used to distribute WCET's popular Article Digest, job posting from WCET members, announcements and breaking news of general interest to our members. WCETDiscuss is a moderated discussion list where members can get ideas and input on pertinent e-learning topics from peers across the country. 

        • Incubated at WCET, the PAR Framework applies descriptive, inferential, and predictive analytical data-mining techniques to a single, federated dataset to better gauge risks and implement interventions that remove barriers to student success.

        • WCET Research aims to shed light on topics that support the operation, instruction and technology implementation of technology-enhanced higher education.

        • Working collaboratively, institutions can navigate the state regulations processes more efficiently than working on their own. The WCET State Authorization Network (SAN)  supports its members through access to experts and networking among others seeking to comply.

        • WCET’s webcasts offer convenience, access to experts around the country, timely information, and practical application of best practices in e-learning.

        • Dear Colleagues:

          It is with great pleasure I offer this greeting on behalf of the Western Alliance of Community College Academic Leaders, an organization that represents and serves academic leadership. The Alliance is an outstanding organization, which facilitates communication and collaboration among academic leaders who daily, face a multitude of opportunities and challenges.

          One of the primary benefits I have received as a member of the Alliance is direct communication with colleagues from more than 16 states who are always willing to respond to a request for information through the list serve.  It is common for to have a member pose a question on the list serve to members of the Alliance, and in minutes, members will respond by offering sound advice from their own experience, citing state or national policies or providing contact the information for a content expert.  These experiences always leave me feeling grateful to be connected to a large network of professionals who really understand the mission and business of community colleges.

          It often feels like the meeting mission of community colleges includes being all things to all people. Finding the balance between meeting the workforce needs of the communities we serve, preparing students for a successful transfer to four-year institutions, and ensuring students have every opportunity possible to be successful in higher education can be daunting work. The Alliance provides a number of resources to support academic leaders in addressing ongoing issues like assessment of student learning outcomes or developing new academic leaders for the future.

          The Alliance website provides links to some of our major initiatives, like the Interstate Passport and he Academic Leaders Toolkit. The website is also linked with the Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education, which provides resources and information on almost all aspects of higher education. If you are reading this greeting, I hope that you are a current member and are making plans now to attend the annual meeting next spring in Seattle. If you are not a member I hope that you consider joining the Alliance, I believe this professional organization will make a difference in your work life, it has made a difference in mine.Provides chief academic leaders of two-year institutions and related system and state agencies with the opportunity to share resources and expertise as they collaboratively address issues of common concern which are beyond the scope of a single institution or state.
