Led by scribes at each table, participants will work in an interactive document to collaboratively answer a series of questions related to the issues that community colleges face in ensuring student success.  The goal of the collaborative ideation sessions is to identify real challenges to address and begin to tackle at the summit.  Participants will engage with each other in person, as well as with virtual conference attendees brought in from remote locations.
