Maryland College Completion Summit on Thursday, April 25, 2019

Higher Education in Maryland continues to work toward the statewide completion goal of ensuring that 55% of adult Marylanders will hold at least an associate degree by 2025.  To that end, the Maryland Higher Education Commission (MHEC) will convene the 2019 biennial Maryland College Completion Summit.

The biennial Maryland College Completion Summit will be a day-long event highlighting Maryland's progress regarding the 2025 55% completion goal.  It will be a forum for representatives from all segments of education, including K-12, economic and workforce development, and other stakeholders to share best practices relative to college completion initiatives that are currently underway in Maryland. It will also be a forum to hear from experts on best practices in other states that may be replicated in Maryland.
