Session Title: Finding Students Who Need to Be found

The tough thing about opportunities is this: more often than not, those who really need the opportunity don't even know it exists. PelotonU is an Austin-based social-enterprise that provides working college students a pathway to graduate on-time and debt-free. We're currently helping parents, government employees, bus drivers and grocery store cashiers get a college degree without having to put their entire life on hold. And it's working. We just had a student get his associate's degree in 100 days; he has a full time job and three kids. We're excited to tell the stories of our students and we need help determining how to reach more folks who would benefit from a different kind of education experience. Join us for an interactive session where you'll hear student stories and get to work brainstorming recruitment strategy for PelotonU as we rethink college.
