The First-Year Experience: A Critical Foundation For Student Success

Overview:

Why does the first year of higher education continue to challenge both students and educators? Why do so many students drop out or fail to maximize their academic potential? Are students themselves “the problem”, or does the problem relate more to the way higher education is organized and delivered? This workshop will explore these questions and suggest effective practices to improve the success and persistence of today’s increasingly diverse population of entering students.

Objectives:

  • Learn valuable information about today’s first-year students and how best to meet their academic, social, and personal needs
  • Understand how to go about defining student success broadly so that the definition includes, but is not limited to, academic performance and retention
  • Learn how to recognize and change institutional policies and practices that run the risk of sabotaging student success
  • Look at specific examples of best practice that promote success for ALL new students as well as those in unique sub-groups

Who Should Attend?

  • Administrative faculty—Educators working to support first-year student engagement, learning, and success beyond the classroom ( e.g., counselors, academic advisors, coaches, administrators, resident hall staff)
  • Instructional faculty, especially those planning and teaching in programs targeting first-year students
