Webinar: Supporting The Engagement, Learning And Success of Students At-Risk 2-Part Workshop

Part 1 - Wednesday, September 24, 3:00-4:30 (Eastern)
Part 2 - Wednesday, October 1, 3:00-4:30 (Eastern)


This intensive three-hour workshop (two 90-minute sessions) will identify the characteristics, challenges, and strengths of students whose backgrounds and experiences often put them at greater risk for not achieving their full potential and/or for leaving college. Participants will also consider how at-risk students often confront multiple challenges due to overlapping issues such as first-generation and first-year, multicultural, underprepared, and LGBT.

At-risk cohorts covered in these sessions include:

- Adult/Reentry
- First-Generation/Low SES
- Students of Color/Multicultural Students
- Students with Disabilities
- Student Athletes
- First-Year Students
- LGBT Students
- Transfer Students

- Learn how individual faculty members, academic advisors, counselors, and other educators can support at-risk students
- Review effective skills, attitudes, and strategies that can enhance student success
- Examine which existing departments need to collaborate effectively in order to increase the achievement and success of at-risk students
- Consider what new programs, services, or other interventions might be needed to support at-risk students
