They had hoped to improve one or more areas of their classrooms—and did not.

As enrollment management has transformed to embrace a more critical recognition of the value and role of outreach and recruitment, and additional institutional resources are being directed to support these efforts, high measures of accountability and return on investment are expected. The task of balancing an effective and innovative strategy to attract, engage, and enroll students has created an ongoing challenge influenced by changing demographics, emerging technologies, and more complex expectations of prospective students. With changing student demographics, student services professionals need to retool outreach strategies to leverage new and innovative tactics. They also need to fine-tune more traditional practices and implement data-informed efforts to maximize their college’s investment in recruitment programs.

Registration Fee: $345.00

Tuesday, May 6 ~ 3:00-4:30 (Eastern)
Today’s college students are growing up in a world very different than that of the previous generation. Dubbed as “Generation Me” (Twenge, 2006) or the “Trophy Generation,” these students are the product of (Carroll, 2003) consistent positive reinforcement and pampering. This trend, manifested in parents praising children with hopes of raising successful, happy children with high self-esteem (Martin, 2013), has caused other unintended consequences. The emphasis on being special has evolved into a broad sense of entitlement (Crosby, n.d., para. 9).

Registration Fee: $345.00

Tuesday, May 13 ~ 1:00-2:30 (Eastern)
Graduate students have a unique set of circumstances that can cause stress, strain, and strife when pursuing their studies at a college or university. These challenges can get in the way of their academic progress, social lives, and general wellness, and in some cases exacerbate existing mental health problems. As the world tragically learned following the shooting in Aurora, Colorado, these issues can have unimaginable consequences, causing students to snap and become violent. How do we recognize the signs and symptoms of extreme stress, and when does it have the potential to turn violent? What does the typical graduate student experience really look like—just how stressed are they? How can we best help alleviate unhealthy stress levels? How can campus departments work together to better address the warning signs that may lead to violence?

Registration Fee: $345.00

Tuesday, May 20 ~ 3:00-4:30 (Eastern)
The challenges of developing a tutor training program from scratch or reinvigorating an existing program are plentiful. Learning centers are often understaffed and lack time and resources. Many times, personnel that double as tutor trainers find themselves without enough time to reflect on program development and implementation. Difficult questions begin to arise. What topics should be covered? What tutor training techniques will function to bring out the most salient issues? What are the most effective modes of delivery? What if the tutors don’t have the time to attend the essential elements of the training program? What are the most important lessons?

Registration Fee: $345.00

Thursday, May 22 ~ 1:00-2:30 (Eastern)
During the last three decades numerous programs and activities have been designed to work with students identified as "at-risk.” Most often these programs have centered on college readiness and preparedness, economic issues, and institutional climate and fit. It is time to expand the definition of "at-risk" to include psychosocial issues, such as students and parents holding unrealistic expectations of the collegiate experience, diminished accountability in the educational process, and an underdeveloped work ethic.

Supporting Latina/o First-Generation Students & Their Families:
The Key To Increasing College Access & Success
Registration Fee: $345.00

Tuesday, May 27 ~ 1:00-2:30 (Eastern)
As educators at all levels seek to increase accessibility to higher education for students whose parents did not attend college, it is essential that we seek out the strengths and assets these students bring to the table. However, we must not stop there. It is the responsibility of the educator, once these strengths are known, to help students use their strengths to their advantage. There is a widely held misconception about how the families of first-generation students support their children through the pursuit of a college education. For many of these families, and for Latino families in particular, support does not always come in the form of helicopter parenting, phone calls to the dean’s office, and assistance with college applications.

Wednesday, May 28 ~ 3:00-4:30 (Eastern)
Post-secondary institutions facing enrollment shortages often recruit international, English Language Learners (ELL) and English as A Second Language (ESL) students to bolster their rolls. Yet do these organizations really understand the needs, desires, and nuances affecting international student programs? Some post-secondary institutions neglect to do their research on developing quality education and services for these specialized populations resulting in attrition, the very problem that attracting these students is intended to solve. Often, this attrition results from a lack of planning, poor status of the program, insufficient understanding of the student population, and/or inadequate support services.

Thursday, June 5 ~ 1:00-2:30 EDT
The collegiate experience has changed dramatically since the War on Poverty began in 1964 and the first TRIO Upward Bound program admitted their inaugural class of students. Although the educational landscape continues to evolve, navigating the path to college and through graduation remains as critical to the success of our TRIO and Educational Opportunity (EOP) populations as it did 50 years ago. Yes, we must continue to meet the students where they are, yet today the journey involves much more than picking an institution, selecting a major, and starting class.

Tuesday, June 10 ~ 3:00-4:30 EDT
Are your students prepared for jobs in the digital age? As educators, we need to utilize technology-enhanced learning in the classroom to better prepare our students for the workplace of the future.

While many aspects of education have remained constant for centuries, others have changed dramatically in just two decades. With students' prolific use of websites such as Wikipedia and YouTube for educational and research purposes, it is important that educators are aware of and understand today's online resources and references. It is also crucial for educators to have knowledge of the many ways students communicate and share resources online via tools such as Dropbox, Google Docs, blogs, social media platforms and wiki pages. Further, Crowdsource fundraising platforms such as Kickstarter, DonorsChoose and Student Launcher offer both colleges and students a unique opportunity to solve problems with the power and potential of outside donors and solutions.

Registration Fee: $345.00

Tuesday, June 24 ~ 1:00-2:30 (Eastern)
There is ongoing debate as to whether students are better off with tenured faculty or adjunct faculty. Research suggests that adjunct faculty risk burnout due to emotional and physical exhaustion. Also suggested is that they are underprepared for the classroom and today’s students. How do we address these issues for this important group? Most institutions have an orientation night for faculty the first week of the semester. However, these orientations typically hit just the tip of the iceberg, addressing college policies and procedures but never delving into the important issues and questions about the classroom.

Registration Fee: $345.00

Thursday, July 10 ~ 1:00-2:30 (Eastern)
Higher education faces increasing ethical and practical demands in order to successfully serve special at-risk student populations. Providing services for these students can be difficult, and successfully evaluating the programs that target at-risk populations presents even more challenges. Many traditional measures of student success such as course grades and retention are reported for the entire student population. These broad reporting practices can make it more difficult to get an accurate reflection of the quality of at-risk programs because some experiences of these limited groups are not common to the student population as a whole.

Complimentary Webinar

Friday, August 8 ~ 1:00-2:30 (Eastern)
When you think of school spirit on a college campus, any number of vivid images come to mind—an electric pep rally, a colorful homecoming parade, a crowded football game, an impassioned student rally. Exhibitions of school spirit take many forms and are often very positive experiences for the student body. These moments offer powerful opportunities for both students and staff to connect over their love for their school. This in turn creates loyal partnerships, a strong determinant of retention and persistence.
