Maximizing student and faculty interaction during the first year of college is key to reducing attrition and maximizing academic performance, yet many institutions struggle to fully engage faculty in first-year student programs.

Join Academic Impressions to learn how to form effective partnerships with faculty and meaningfully involve them in first-year student experience programs and other student success initiatives. This webcast will be highly interactive as our instructor integrates discussion questions, polls, and virtual break-out rooms.

You will learn:

* What forms of faculty engagement have the greatest impact on student success
* How to educate and motivate faculty to become involved


Academic and student affairs professionals involved with the implementation of first-year programs and student success initiatives will benefit from this webcast. Institutions will receive the most benefit from this program having multiple partners for faculty engagement present. This includes those who work with freshmen seminars/success courses, orientation, living-learning communities, early alert, bridge or other intervention programs, advising, parent and family programs, and others.
