International Conference on Learning, Teaching, and Student Success '16 at Montana State University

International Conference on Learning, Teaching, and Student Success (ICLTSS'16)
Montana State University
November 3-5, 2016

CONFERENCE THEME: We're All in This Together: A Community Commitment to Student Success

Dear Colleague:

The ICLTSS'16 Organizing Committee is pleased to invite you to the campus of Montana State University for a global gathering of professionals committed to engaging in a broad discussion of "student success." As the conference theme suggests, ICLTSS organizers encourage the view that student success is everyone's business and the journey from kindergarten to career is a path inhabited by a wide variety of community stakeholders.

ICLTSS'16 is a place for academic researchers, higher education faculty/administrators/students, Student Affairs practitioners, K-12 teachers/administrators, policymakers, and others. We will share research and best practices, discuss how students can develop a mindset and attitude for success in education and beyond; along with how we as practitioners guide students through this process. The conference program will consist of keynote speeches, interactive workshops, panel discussions, oral and poster presentations, and opportunities for networking with a broad group of global professionals.

ICLTSS'16 is being held in Bozeman, Montana, located in the heart of the Rocky Mountains, Bozeman is truly a remarkable community and is known for its natural beauty and plentiful outdoor recreation opportunities. Join colleagues from around the world who care deeply about student success.
