Academic Advising: Strategies You Can Employ to Engage, Satisfy & Retain Your Students - April 27, 2017 Webinar & CD
ISBN/ISSN: PUB#AC1034 Academic.Advising.4.27.17
As an academic advisor, you have the unique opportunity to impact students every day. In fact, the work you do has a direct impact on students’ persistence, retention and satisfaction, which is a responsibility that is both exciting and daunting. You must be able to help ensure the academic, career and lifelong success of your students, helping them balance their pursuits in a way that encourages them to be successful in all areas of their life — otherwise you run the risk of them dropping out or transferring.
Join your colleagues from across the country for an interactive webinar and in just 90 minutes, you’ll uncover strategies that promote sustainable and effective academic advising practices. You’ll learn how to empower yourself so you can equip your students with the skills they need in order to work successfully toward college completion on your campus — and beyond.
