Friday, June 7, 2013
Noon - 2:00 pm
Harold Alfond Forum, 2nd Floor Conference Rooms 230/231
University of New England, Biddeford, ME
Presenters: Kim Whitney Sauerwein, Director of Student Success and Retention; Burton Kirkwood, Academic Dean; Kate Seamans, Assistant Director of Communications, Colby Sawyer College
Description: How do we use data to inform student retention practice? In this session, we will discuss specific measures for institutional and student success, methods of communicating this data, and strategies for turning this information into campus action plans. We will highlight Colby-Sawyer College's “first six weeks” initiative and how it fits into the annual Plan for Student Success and Retention.
Our mission is to provide resources and support year-round to those faculty, staff, and administrators who strive to enhance student success among the students of New England higher education institutions--from community colleges to private liberal arts colleges, large research universities to small state colleges. We do this by offering and/or supporting:
an annual conference
regional events on a periodic basis
best practices/information sharing
shared interest groups
other collaborative endeavors
