Thursday, January 19 - 11:00 a.m. ET
In the face of declining enrollment and increased expectations around completion from policymakers and the public, colleges and universities have increasingly tasked department chairs with recruiting new students and working toward the retention of students who were already at their institutions. Chairs have always scheduled classes and managed faculty: What else was there to do? A lot, it turns out.
This 75-minute seminar will explore how and why department chairs should recruit students and put in place systems that support them to remain enrolled and on track, and to complete their degrees.
In this session, you will learn:
- Strategies to lead departments to student-friendly curriculum and scheduling
- Ways to create a departmental culture and shared practices supporting student success among faculty, staff, and the students themselves
- Opportunities to leverage campus resources to help departments take care of their communities of students, staff, and faculty
- Allison Calhoun Brown, Senior Vice President for Student Success, Georgia State University
- Martin Kurzweil, Vice President of Educational Transformation, Ithaka S+R
You'll receive a link to the recording and the provided resources in a separate document.
