The Interstate Passport Review Board will hold its annual meeting in Boulder, Colorado, January 31, 2019 – February 1, 2019. The Board consists of the Passport State Facilitator from each member state — Arkansas, California, Idaho, Hawaii, North Dakota, Oregon, South Dakota, Utah and Wyoming — as well as transfer, learning outcomes, institutional research, evaluation, and state policy experts.
Topics for presentations include: the analysis of the data on the 2017-2018 Passports awarded; the findings from project research and evaluation being conducted by the Education and Employment Research Center at Rutgers University; a review of marketing and communications efforts by Education Marketing Group; and a critique of the Annual Report AY 2017-18.
The Board is co-chaired by Peter Quigley, associate vice president, academic affairs at the University of Hawaii System, and Paul Turman, system vice president for academic affairs at the South Dakota Board of Regents.
The South Dakota Board of Regents (SDBOR) and Laramie County Community College (LCCC) have completed the implementation of Interstate Passport. This webinar will describe the scripts and processes used by SDBOR and LCCC to complete these tasks in the Colleague student information system. These solutions include (1) identifying students that meet the requirements to earn a Passport; (2) the processes to enter the Passport into Colleague to appear on the transcript, (3) and the process to submit the list of Passport students to the National Student Clearinghouse.
