Kickoff Institute: Tennessee Colleges of Applied Technology

September 29, 2020 - October 6, 2020

By invitation only

The Kickoff Institute is designed to prepare Tennessee Colleges of Applied Technology teams to begin or intensify the process of transformative institutional improvement. Attendees will work with their ATD coaches to begin planning for the integration and alignment of their student success. This Kickoff Institute will focus specifically on integrating ATD with other state priorities for student success, including Strategic Enrollment Management. Teams will return to campus with a roadmap for moving forward.

By the end of the Kickoff Institute, your team will be able to:

  • Understand the ATD framework for building sustainable institutional capacity to improve equitable outcomes for all students.
  • Develop a work plan to analyze data to identify strengths, gaps and opportunities to expand enrollment and increase equitable outcomes in support of the Strategic Enrollment Management plan.
  • Develop a communication plan to share what you have learned and convey how your college will build support and engagement for the student success work among faculty, staff and administrators.

The Kickoff Institute for TCATs will take place in two phases in September and October, 2020. By invitation only.
