Venue: Online Webcast
|Event Date/Time: May 29, 2012||End Date/Time: May 31, 2012|
|Early Registration Date: May 22, 2012|
Join us for a two-part webcast series that will focus on proven retention techniques you can apply inside and outside of the classroom. Drawing on the expertise of two practitioners, this series will provide a comprehensive overview of interventions, programs, and practices that lead to first-generation success.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND
This webcast is ideal for student affairs and enrollment management professionals responsible for overseeing retention initiatives for first-generation populations, at-risk populations, minority populations, and low-income populations. Academic advisors and deans will also gain valuable strategies for interacting with first-generation students in the classroom. The webcast content is particularly well-suited for institutions with growing first-generation student populations or those with little knowledge of first-gen studentsâ€™ special needs.
Included in your registration is a mini-webcast recording that highlights some of the demographic characteristics that are unique to the first-generation student population. It is recommended that you view this recording prior to the live webcast sessions on May 29 & 31.
