APSU College Completion Academy


April 13 & 14, 2012

The Austin Peay College Completion Academy, to be held April 13 & 14, is modeled on two successful Tennessee Completion Academies (that have been modeled on Complete College America's national academies). Austin Peay participated in a state Academy in the fall, and one of our outcomes from that Academy was to host a campus-wide Academy to support deeper discussions on our campus. The Academy is a two-day strategic planning session that will give teams from across our campus an opportunity to work together, through a rotation of plenaries and individual team times, to develop or fine-tune their completion strategies. The State of Tennessee, as you know, is a leader in the national college completion movement following passage in 2010 of the landmark Complete College Tennessee Act, which lays out a variety of policies designed to improve time-to-degree; encourage the creation of new structures that are more friendly to students balancing careers and families; and better align resources to help drive completion.
