The Mississippi Institutions of Higher Learning and the Mississippi Community College Board have partnered together to identify non-completers, categorize target groups, launch a website and comprehensive marketing plan, implement adult learner services, and re-engage adult students to help them complete their degrees through a state-wide initiative called “Complete 2 Compete.” This program is a partnership between the eight public universities, 15 community colleges, and one medical center in MS. This webinar will highlight the implementation and development of the program, as well as barriers identified, policy development, tracking and monitoring, and a system-wide policy for adult degree completion programs for the eight Mississippi public universities.
