Strengthening Developmental Education:
What Have We Learned, and What's Next?
June 21–22, 2012
Columbia University Faculty House, New York, NY
NCPR's 2012 national conference built on its successful 2010 conference in presenting the most recent empirical work on developmental education and related efforts that address students' poor preparation. The conference examined several major new community college initiatives and addressed the question of whether bolder reforms are needed to help more students succeed, and what these reforms might look like. In doing so, the conference aimed to help establish a solid foundation for future research, practice, and policy.
