During the 2014-2015 Academic Year, the Neighborhoods represented MSU at a number of national and regional conferences, in what is referred to as the “Neighborhoods Roadshow.” The work of the Success Teams was shared at several places, including Genyne Royal, Kelly High McCord, and Tom Fritz at NASPA; Erich Pitcher at ACPA; and Reggie Noto, Monda Kindle, and Deb Thornton at NACADA. Scotty Secrist and Christina Finley represented MSU at the Conference on the First Year Experience and talked about our innovative Spartan Success Scholars Coaching Program.
Reggie Noto also attended the Association of American Colleges & Universities (AAC&U) Conference about Diversity, Learning, and Student Success and presented “Spartan Success Scholars: Creating an Institutional Environment for Equitable Learning.” Overall, people were impressed with the innovative work the Neighborhoods are doing, especially the cross-unit collaborations and supporting student success among racially and economically diverse students. To view any of the PowerPoints from these presentations, please contact Erich Pitcher.

The Data Summit will take place on Tuesday, May 12, 2015 at 9 a.m. in B115 Wells Hall and will feature the robust body of evidence collected this past year.
