OVERVIEW Emotional Intelligence (EI) is a unique repertoire of emotional skills and competencies that a person uses to navigate everyday challenges of life. EI skills can assist students in adapting to the demands and pressures of the college environment, promoting effective student learning, and contributing to college success. This session will highlight an innovative and collaborative approach that significantly contributes to student success and college retention. College employees (staff, faculty and administrators) utilize their leadership and EI skills to make a meaningful difference in the lives of college students.
