College student success is central to the today’s professional workforce. It is increasingly necessary for people to seek some postsecondary training to secure successful careers. Changing economies, new technology and shortages in high-demand careers ─ at a time when student needs are more diverse ─ means that postsecondary education faces an enormous challenge in helping individual students succeed and fueling tomorrow’s workforce and economy.

SREB’s Student Success Advisory Council of leaders and experts came together in 2022 to prioritize actions toward better practice and policy. Join three Council members and SREB’s vice president for postsecondary education to discuss the most impactful strategies that will lead to individual and collective postsecondary success.
