50% of Your Students are "Non-Traditional": The New Normal – Policies, Practices & Programs to Meet the Realities of Who Your Students Are - April 13, 2017 Webinar & CD
ISBN/ISSN: PUB#AC1069 Non-Traditional.Students.4.13.17
Nearly half of all students enrolled in higher education today are “non-traditional” students — and one quarter of all students are over the age of 30, according to NPR.org. “Non-traditional” students are no longer the “other” — they are the norm.
Today’s “normal” on campuses across the U.S. is older students, who work at least part-time, and who are juggling family or other responsibilities.
Is your campus functioning in a way that meets these students’ needs? If not, you could be missing the opportunity to engage, satisfy and retain a significant number of your students.
Join us and in just 90 minutes you and your staff will explore strategies for adapting your programs, policies and practices to meet the needs of what is quickly becoming almost half of the student population. The need for new approaches is now — to provide these students a path to sustainable employment, you must be able to offer them the resources they need to successfully graduate.
Dr. Grant L. Azdell currently serves as the Vice President for Student Affairs and Dean of Students, and is a Professor at Randolph-Macon College in Ashland, Virginia. (Click here for full bio)

As a result of this webinar, you will be able to:
Satisfy, engage and retain your students – adapt your programs, policies and practices to meet the needs of the “new normal” so you don’t lose them.
Help your students put themselves first – help them see the significant value on investing in themselves and in their future.
Meet these students’ unique needs – don’t miss the opportunity to provide the services they need most to succeed such as remedial education, financial aid, academic advising, tutoring, counseling, career services and more!
Change your thinking and the way you provide access to critical services on campus – you’ll lose students if you don’t!
