White House Summit on Community Colleges today!

The opening session for the first ever White House Summit on Community Colleges is today. If you want to view it live, please click here. Obama will speak at the opening session at 11:00am Central time.

There is a lot of buzz in the blogosphere about this summit. Try here (Inside Higher Education) or here (The Chronicle of Higher Education) for a couple of interesting pieces.

What do you think? Will you have a chance to watch the event? Are you following this? Anyone participating at the event?

The Chancellor of the City Colleges of Chicago, where I teach, has been invited to participate and our colleges are setting up viewing areas on each campus. It should be interesting to see how the event unfolds and what folks take away from it.

Let me know what you think.

    The following message was from Pam Winton:

    Hi Carrie and ACCESS friends. We were just considering strategies for joining the conversation on this with a focus on early childhood. Ideas? Would you all be interested in thinking about doing a guest blog?
