The 2015 Fall Conference has just concluded and was a great success! The conference theme “Standing Together as a National Force in the Renewal and Reform of Education” was brought to life with consistent messages in informal conversations, presentations, and talks by our guest speakers. The conference brought together record numbers of attendees from over 24 states and representing over 55 institutions of higher education and P-12 education. Representatives of other professional organizations were also in attendance, joining in the call for action.
The Renaissance Group’s initiative and preliminary results of the SOAR survey data gathering sparked enthusiasm with numerous campuses outside of TRG expressing interest to join the effort. TRG is continuing to gather survey data from member institutions and compiling an analysis that can be disseminated to policy makers, institutional leaders, and higher education colleagues. The need and momentum for this initiative were evident as presenters and speakers provided their perspectives, examples of impressive programs and research, and engaged in thought provoking discussions.
Please join us and respond to our SOAR Survey on our home page as The Renaissance Group takes the lead to formally recognize and elevate the best practices in educator preparation, informing the field and policy makers. The challenge and necessity to influence the future of education has never been greater – your expertise and voices are needed!
Thank you to all our Board of Governors and TRG member institutions that were able to attend the conference in San Antonio. We look forward to our work this year and next year’s 2016 TRG/TECSCU Fall Conference to be held in Charleston, S.C!
