2018 Momentum Summit

2018 Momentum Summit

February 15, 2018
Georgia Tech Global Learning Center

For several months, the Office of Academic Affairs and Policy has worked to convene faculty and staff from across all USG institutions to introduce the Momentum Year and initiate a statewide discussion about student success in the first academic year. From these initial conversations, the University System of Georgia will work with institution leadership during spring 2018 to implement strategies that support all incoming students to:

  • Make a purposeful program choice
  • Develop a strong academic mindset
  • Attempt the first 30 hours of a clear pathway that include 9 credit hours in a focus area and an initial English and math 

The 2018 Momentum Year Summit will be held on February 15-16, 2018 at the Georgia Tech Global Learning Center in Atlanta, GA. In addition to presidents, we are inviting teams of seven from each institution that include Vice Presidents of Academic Affairs, Vice Presidents of Student Affairs, Chief Fiscal Officers, faculty and staff to develop 18-month Momentum Year implementation plans. To assist in the development of these plans, national experts on aspects of the Momentum Year will be available during the Summit to meet with institutions and provide insight.
