NADE’s motto (“Helping underprepared students prepare, prepared students advance, and advanced students excel”) is intended to convey the fundamental belief that developmental education services enhance academic, personal, and professional achievement for ALL learners. This is what we do. This is how we help others. It’s how we make a difference every day.
“Nothing beats the value of the NADE conference. Over the years, I’ve attended national conferences for numerous associations and the “take backs” from NADE are always the most useful. This year’s conference is not going to disappoint. Don’t miss it!” –Annette Cook
