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.

- Students with Disabilities
- Student Athletes
- First-Year Students
- LGBT Students
- Transfer 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
