5 Ways to Keep Your Low-Income Students in College: Break Down the Barriers To Completion - March 22, 2017 Webinar & CD
ISBN/ISSN: PUB#AC1051 Low.Income.Students.3.22.17
Millions of people across the U.S. are struggling to make ends meet, and your students are not an exception. Poverty and financial stresses prevent college success — causing many students to eventually drop out before completing their degree. How can you help retain these students and increase completion?
Join our expert presenter, Sara Goldrick-Rab, and learn five things you can do right now to help your low-income students succeed: learn how to precisely assess every student so you can target them for support; how to screen for benefits access; how to address their need for food and housing and determine how to best help them; and how to create and operate an emergency aid grant program effectively.
Help your low-income students achieve their academic goals by bringing all available resources to the table. You’ll be able to better retain and engage them — and help them graduate.
Dr. Sara Goldrick-Rab is a Professor of Higher Education Policy and Sociology at Temple University, the Founder of the Wisconsin HOPE Lab and author of Paying the Price: College Costs, Financial Aid, and the Betrayal of the American Dream. (Click here for full bio)
