Strategies for Student Success in 2021-2022
Colleges and universities are planning students’ return and their engagement with academics, co-curricular activities, athletic events, and other important functions related to the college experience. Many students will expect to return to a collegiate experience similar to pre-March 2020; however, we are still in a pandemic.
Our seasoned and engaging presenters from Colorado State University discuss the challenges of supporting students during this new phase of the COVID-19 pandemic; as well as other issues students are facing, such as social justice issues, worrisome national and global events and the personal decision regarding vaccination.
How confident do you feel supporting students amid this phase of the pandemic? Did your student body lose trust in the institution’s leadership in doing what is best for their overall health and well-being? Strategies will be shared on how to support students during this difficult time.
Leverage the loss students may have experienced from missing portions of their high school and/or collegiate experience by developing short-term and long-term creative post-pandemic programs, services and opportunities for reflection.
You will take away critical, actionable tools that will help you:
- Identify potential challenges students may encounter during this phase of the pandemic – develop short-term and long-term strategies for overcoming barriers to students’ success this fall and beyond as you work toward rebuilding engagement in college life.
- Communicate to stakeholders how your campus intends to continue supporting students – instill confidence in institutional efforts to deliver a comprehensive college experience moving forward.
- Develop staff structures to support students – utilize your human resources smartly and effectively to provide quality student services while also protecting your staffs’ health and well-being.
- Maintain a nimble and supportive approach to providing student services – utilize a mindset based on flexibility, solving problems and teamwork to help students overcome challenges.
- Develop a work group to support specific student populations – provide specialized and direct support to students with disabilities, those struggling with mental health, students of color, those with chronic medical conditions, and student parents and caregivers.
