Colleges have many diverse students and there is an increase in first-generation students who may be at-risk, students with learning disabilities who may be vulnerable, and students who simply arrive unprepared for the academic rigors of college. What can faculty do to help these students succeed and thrive?
The upcoming workshop, "Teaching Unprepared Students: Strategies for Promoting Success and Retention in Higher Education," is a unique opportunity for SSU faculty to discuss this question and learn concrete and effective strategies from a nationally known higher education expert, Dr. Kathleen Gabriel (CSU Chico).
The workshop takes place Friday, April 29 from noon-1:30 p.m. in Schulz 1121. Register online at http://goo.gl/Z1waS. The first twenty-five people to register and attend will receive a free copy of Dr. Gabriel's book.
