CONCURRENT WORKSHOPS II

 

Purpose First 

As more institutions consider guided pathways, greater emphasis is being placed on career outcomes. Too few students are beginning their college experience with an understanding of majors and associated careers.

Complete College America is working to develop a purpose-driven approach to student onboarding and major choice that includes labor market data, return on investment, and academic/personal assessment.

NACADA: Proactive Advising 

Too often, students who need the most help are the least likely to ask for it. Or worse, some students don’t realize that they are on the wrong path until it’s too late. This session will focus on tools and strategies that academic advisors can use to identify and connect with students just in time to prevent them from veering off track from graduating on time.

Who Should Attend: High school senior counselors, IHE faculty/staff

NACADA: Transfer Advising and Articulation
