Colleagues - consider presenting at or attending this conference. 
Roberta Richards, Sue Phelps and I did last year and it was fun mingling 
with others involved with student success. The library is key to student 
success and retention - we just need to get the word out! This is a 
great place to discover other offices on campus that the library can 
partner with.

Email me (Bob Schroeder schroedr at pdx.edu) if you have questions about 
this conference, or if you want the official proposal form to fill out 
(I didn't think I could email an attachment to the list).
