Webinar: 'Effective academic advising for first-year students: a critical foundation for success,' July 10
by Michelle Saport |
Tuesday, July 10, 9 a.m.
UAA/APU Consortium Library, Room 302A
This webinar, based on the recent work of Betsy Barefoot, Ph.D., will explore the integral role advising plays in the success of first-year and undecided students and suggest effective practices to improve the persistence of today's increasingly diverse population of students entering college. Participants will learn how to define student success broadly, looking at and beyond issues of academic performance and retention. Participants will also look closely at the best practices for promoting success among several unique subgroups of students. Participants will leave with tools to create effective policies and practices at their own institutions.
Community campuses are welcome to call in, but must R.S.V.P. by Friday, July 6, by calling (907) 786-4506.
