NACEP closed out the last few months of 2015 with record participation and tremendous presentations at our national conference, along with additional successful statewide dual and concurrent enrollment events organized by NACEP members in Oklahoma, Ohio, New England, Maryland, and Washington State. NACEP's Executive Director Adam Lowe participated in an U.S. Department of Education event announcing an experimental use of Pell grants for dual enrollment and facilitated state policy-makers attending a Dual Enrollment Policy Academy organized by the Education Commission of the States.
We hope you'll join us in the many exciting activities and events already planned for 2016!
