$220

Registration Due: March 07, 2020

Time: 1-2:30 pm

Overview:

This webinar session will address factors that students (and their parents) take into consideration in choosing which college to attend—based on student persistence to graduation (including academic preparation, social integration, institutional support, and financial considerations), the key factors relevant to finding appropriate job placements, as well as how to identify potentially [at-risk] students and effectively intervene with these students in an integrated and effective manner. Also, the facilitator will provide savvy techniques how to develop a comprehensive college student recruitment and retention plan that puts everyone at the institution on the same page with respect to their efforts.

 

Objectives:

  • Appreciate the importance of relationships and why academics (alone) are not the answer to student success
  • Demonstrate how to connect what employers need with what students get in college
  • Demonstrate how to improve recruitment strategies with traditional as well as nontraditional college populations
  • Discuss the importance, and appropriate use of, mentoring and counseling skills in fostering student success
  • Discover why developmental/appreciative advising is becoming the key to overall student success
  • Explore the four factors that contribute to student success: social integration, financial support, institutional support, and attitude/motivation
  • Identify students who are [at risk] and what to do once they have been identified
  • Learn a brief history of who has historically attended higher education and how the population is continually evolving – and how to use this information to enhance recruitment and retention
  • Investigate the three skills everyone who works with college students need to know and practice to retain students to graduation
