BACC Cross-Site 2013 Meeting
January 28, 2013
Amy Ellen Duke-Benfield, senior policy analyst and Abigail Newcomer, policy analyst on the Workforce Development team at CLASP, along with their partners at the American Association of Community Colleges, will facilitate the second annual meeting of the seven college sites participating in Benefits Access for College Completion (BACC) on Monday, Jan. 28 and Tuesday, Jan 29 in San Diego, CA. The initiative's goal is to seed scalable and sustainable policies and practices that connect low-income students to an array of public benefits in order to increase the number of students earning postsecondary credentials. During this cross-site meeting, the seven participating colleges will learn about each other's approaches, enhance efforts to integrate students' access to public benefits and develop goals for 2013.
