A Message from the Project Manager

August 2021

Good day and Happy Summer!

I trust that you are finding some ways to relax and refresh after a very unusual year.  All too soon we will be turning our attention to another school year.

This November NYSACAC will wrap up its Student Success Project with a series of one-day convenings.  The theme of these convenings will be Turning Ideas into Actions:

Supporting Student Postsecondary Attainment and Success.  Our mission will be to explore ways to build partnerships to design and implement programs that address the various action items generated by previous discussion related to the college transfer process.

As indicated in the recent “Save the Date” notices, additional details will follow at the end of the summer, but we ask that you consider saving one of these dates to participate in one of these important conversations.

Each day is slated to begin at 8:45 am and end by 4:30 pm. Lunch will be provided.

Space will be limited at each location, and we ask you to provide us with an early read on possible attendance by completing the very short survey – hereBy providing us a preliminary, non-binding sense of your plans, we will reach out to you individually with subsequent information about these meetings.

NOTE:  Should COVID-19 protocols preclude on-site meetings, these convenings will be offered via Zoom.

I wish each of you a relaxing and rejuvenating end to these summer months and a smooth transition into the school year.  I look forward to seeing many of you in November.

Best wishes,


Kurt Thiede
Manager, NYSACAC Student Success Project
