~~ANNOUNCEMENT~~CLADEA is pleased to present a White Paper titled Meaningful Access and Support: The Path to College Completion authored by Dr. Martha E. Casazza and Dr. Sharon L. Silverman. The paper is a call to action for U.S. colleges and universities and higher education policymakers to provide meaningful access and academic support for all students. Meaningful access and academic support are imperative to increase graduation rates, develop an educated workforce, strengthen the economy, and compete globally. This paper lays out five imperatives to forge a path toward increased college completion, explores policies that restrict or inhibit access and academic support, describes features of successful academic support programs, and responds to recent developmental education research.

~~ANNOUNCEMENT~~ CLADEA encourages professional development and research in the field. In addition to creating how-to-do-research sessions at the conferences of member organizations, the Council now provides online highlights of these sessions and other research support. A series of podcasts will be offered; TRPP (Dr. Martha Casazza and Dr. Sharon Silverman) provides content for the podcasts, and Innovative Educators (Valerie Kisiel and Kristen Seldon) produces the podcasts, at no charge to CLADEA or its member organizations.
