Prepare for ‘First Year’ Sophomores on Your Campus – On-Demand Training

Sale price$399.00


Support Their Unique Needs for Acclimation, Engagement & Persistence

This year’s class of sophomore students will be unique — a cohort grown from unusual circumstances that will require tailored services to support their needs for engagement and persistence. Sophomores are typically well connected and engaged at this point in their collegiate career, but instead many of them have not yet even stepped foot on your campus. This unusual circumstance will require faculty and staff to acclimate two classes of “new” students to campus, with very different needs.

Engage in valuable discussion about how you can better support and serve your incoming sophomore students to ensure they acclimate and succeed academically, socially and emotionally.

Bridge the gap and prepare now to help them overcome possible adjustment barriers and allow them to thrive on your campus during the 2021-22 academic year.

Topics Covered

As a result of attending this webinar you will be able to:

  • Examine your institution’s or division’s plans to assist in the overall success of sophomores joining your campus community this fall for the first time — build intentional points of connections academically and socially to engage them on campus.
  • Build campus structures and systems that provide support for this “new” class of students — create unique programs that advocate and support their satisfaction, engagement, and persistence in ways they may not even yet know they will need.
  • Design programs and interventions that increase institutional commitment and cross-division partnerships for this unique group of students — create a competent and responsive community that ensures “first-year” sophomores feel valued, a sense of belonging and supported in this unprecedented scenario.
  • Facilitate critical conversations with key stakeholders on your campus to allocate human and fiscal resources available to assist sophomores — think creatively to utilize resources you have to provide tailored services to support their emotional and social well-being.
