• LaGuardia Hosts "Learning Inside and Outside the Classroom"  CUE Conference

  • The premise of this year’s 10th Annual CUE Conference on May 2, 2014 at LaGuardia Community College is a comprehensive and holistic definition of learning which integrates academic achievement and student development. Seen in this light, students combine cognitive, emotional, and experiential elements into greater knowledge, maturity, and judgment as they progress through their college careers. As recognition of this interdependence has grown in higher education, many institutions have sought to engage the whole campus in a common effort to educate the “whole student”. How do we define and organize our work to meet this goal? How can we connect the “silos” which too often contain and limit our efforts? How do we assess these efforts, and how can our assessments encourage further integrative initiatives?

    The keynote speaker for this year's conference is Dr. Geroge D. Kuh, Adjunct Professor at the University of Illinois and the Director of the National Institute for Learning Outcomes Assessment. Dr. Kuh's presentation is entitled "What Matters to Student Success: The Promise of High-Impact Practices"

    The conference will provide an opportunity to bring together faculty and staff from across the university to share programs and practices which build on this integrative idea along the following tracks:

    • First-Year Programming 
    • Advisement and Student Support Services 
    • Co-curricular Learning: Experiential and Service 
    • Bridging Cognitive and Affective Learning 
    • Faculty-Student Collaborations 
    • Encouraging Transfer: Curricula and Support Services 
    • Capstone Courses and Career Preparation

    The deadline for submitting proposals has passed.
