The event, Raise the Bar: Tackling Transfer to Increase Access, Improve Completion, and Prepare Today’s Workforce, will take place at Northern Virginia Community College’s Annandale campus, welcoming more than 200 higher education leaders and asking them for input on how to help students transfer smoothly from two-year to four-year schools.

U.S. Under Secretary of Education James Kvaal and Office of Postsecondary Education Assistant Secretary Nasser Paydar will be in attendance.
