Join us for this professional development symposium with leading educators of college success and diversity education! Enter into dialogue with renowned experts as they present sessions on essential topics for effectively promoting student success and retention at a college or university.

The first year of college is the most critical period for student retention at all types of higher education institutions. One of the most well-researched and well-documented initiatives for promoting student persistence is the first-year experience (FYE) course. However, not all FYE programs are created equal.

Student Success Symposium: Promoting First-Year Retention and Degree Completion at 2 & 4- Year Campuses focuses on designing and delivering an FYE program that not only promotes first-year retention, but also provides lasting effects culminating in higher rates of academic achievement and college completion.

This year's speakers are:

Dr. Joe Cuseo, Dr. Aaron Thompson, Dr. Michele Campagna, Julie McLaughlin, Shane Shope, John Roush, and Ross Dickie.

This symposium addresses the full range of factors promoting college success, focusing especially on high-impact practices that are grounded in research on student learning and persistence to educate students holistically.

Topics include:

  • Active Learning Strategies
  • Using Engaging Technology
  • Incorporating Diversity
  • Utilizing Peer Leaders
  • And much more!

This practical and personalized workshop experience is filled with opportunities to meet with the presenters informally. You'll also receive session information to take home and follow-up contact information to help you perfectly customize the symposium's content to your campus.

Kendall Hunt Publishing is the proud corporate sponsor of this professional development opportunity.
