Higher Education Leaders To Meet In Boise To Continue 'Go On' Conversation

Idaho is part of the Momentum Pathways Project, an initiative to get more students graduating with some form of higher education.

Leaders from Idaho colleges and universities will meet Tuesday at Boise State.


The all-day meeting with higher ed leaders is part of the Momentum Pathways Project. The initiative is backed with half a million dollars from a national group called Complete College America. The nonprofit works with states – including Idaho – to get more students to complete some form of secondary education.

Randall Brumfield is with the Idaho State Board of Education, and says some of the topics they’ll discuss include:

“Dual credit and adult learners and timely completion, and trying to have a clear path for students so they know exactly what it is they need to do to finish,” says Brumfield.  

He says as important as it is to have leaders at the meeting, it’s perhaps more important to bring college staff that are on the front lines of helping students complete school.

“You might not think that a registrar initially would be an office that would be devoted to student success in the traditional sense. But actually, they manage how credit articulates across the state for transfer students.”

The same group will meet again in April to further the conversation.
