Event Description:
Bring your lunch and join the Office of Scholarly Communications' Jessica Kelly for the presentation 'Getting Students From Here to There' Tuesday, Sept. 10 from noon to 1 in Mullins Library Room 486. Come for the talk on High Impact Practices that bolster student success; stay for the homemade baked goods!

How do we get students from ‘here’ to ‘there’ – that is, from where they start out upon arriving on campus to their college completion? The importance of High Impact Practices (HIPs) has been well-established as vital to improving student success, but what does it take to get students, especially non-traditional and under-served students, to the point where they can successfully engage in a HIP, such as a major signature work? Research shows that a holistic approach is best for student success and that mentoring and counseling play a key role in student retention and success, especially for non-traditional and under-served students. But why and how are mentoring and counseling so vital? And how can we go beyond the basics to fully engage and connect with our students?
