The 2019 Mindset Summit will be held on Friday, April 26, at the Jekyll Island Convention Center (map) from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm. The Summit will provide an opportunity to review what we have learned about students' in the USG and begin to investigate next steps in developing activities to support students productive academic mindsets.
For Spring 2019, the University System of Georgia is hosting Spring Corequisite Academies in two regional sites to facilitate broader faculty participation and reduce the distance teams will need to travel to participate. Both Academies will feature similar programming and opportunities for interaction with peers. Participants are welcome to participate in either (or both) academies, but total participation is capped at 75 for each academy and you are encouraged to choose the location closest to you.
Building on the experience and successes of the past year, the Summit will provide institutional teams with an opportunity to reflect upon their Momentum Year plans and the work they have accomplished to date and identify what remains to be done in order to fully implement a Momentum Year on their campuses by Fall 2019. Additionally, the Summit is an opportunity for institutions to think more deeply about how the Momentum Year integrates across the breadth of a student’s experience in college. Participants will work through a series of engaging and creative exercises to develop personal plans for action that will inform campus-wide implementation plans.
