Momentum Summit VI

Institutions across the University System of Georgia collect every year to share experiences, learn new strategies, and plan their work for student Momentum for the year ahead. The Momentum Summit V is an opportunity to review and refine the work institutions have committed to, assess progress, and chart a path forward for building upon success.

The Momentum Approach

Momentum provides a framework for understanding how institutions can maintain student progress toward a degree. A key component of the Momentum Approach was the intentional engagement of the whole campus community in support of student success, with the framework providing structure for understanding how various units across campus can support students across their lifecycle – from prospect to alumni. Even as the work of Momentum becomes less specific, the key expectations of scaling work for all students and relying on research-informed practices remain at the heart of Momentum.

Momentum in the USG is focused on three overlapping lenses: Purpose, Pathways, and Mindset. By applying these perspectives to the student experience at every stage of the student journey and across the student experience on campus, institutions create an institutional context that helps all students succeed. In many areas, the practices and strategies that align with Momentum are well-established and supported by a significant research base.  In others areas, Momentum helps to frame the exploration and experimentation that will lead to the established practices of the future.

2021 CCG/Momentum Campus Plan Updates Overview

Institutions are asked to update their CCG Campus Plan annually. For the System Office, these reports provide an essential window into the work and priorities of our institutions across the state.  For institutions, it is hoped that the annual review and reporting process provides an opportunity for reflection on their work and refining their goals, objectives, and the paths by which they will get there.  For 2021, the Updates focus on the plans institutions developed as an outcome of the Momentum Summit IV. 

Momentum Summit IV - Internationalizing the Curriculum

Join us to learn more about what it means to Internationalize the curriculum and its benefits. We will cover practical steps towards internationalizing the curriculum, such as World 101, a free curriculum sponsored by the Council on Foreign Relations designed to assist professors with infusing international topics into existing classes or frame new courses with global themes. Also, we will explore how International Virtual Exchange brings students and faculty from around the globe into a shared space for inquiry and creation, as well as ways to implement it on your campus.

Momentum Summit IV - Connecting to Careers

Many institutions included connecting to careers as a key aspect of their Momentum Plans at the Summit III. This session will profile the progress that several have made in integrating career connections into the student academic journey and programs, including career counseling, inventories, and career-focused Nexus degrees. It will also provide a potential Systemwide negotiation for Handshake – a tool that helps students connect with employers. and careers.
