Strategies for Enhancing the Success of International and Out-of-State Students
Universities across the country are increasingly recruiting international and out-of-state students to enhance diversity, selectivity, and revenue. Competition for these students can be fierce and ensuring their success often requires support beyond that required by the local student population. Learn about proven strategies for successfully enrolling and graduating non-resident students by effectively tailoring outreach efforts and support services.
This complementary, one-hour webinar brings together senior administrators from universities across the country, as well as professional student coaches with more than a decade of experience mentoring out-of-state and international students. The panel shares best practices and respond to your questions regarding ways to effectively engage non-resident learners and deliver an outstanding student experience.
Defining Standard Post-Traditional Student Success Metrics
Non-first time, non-full-time students are becoming the norm in higher education. Yet most colleges don’t track their success rates. UPCEA and InsideTrack surveyed adult-focused programs across the country and found that only 57 percent track retention and 23 percent track completion for post-traditional students.
The primary challenge is the lack of a standard measurement and reporting mechanism. As accreditors and regulators increasingly incorporate student outcomes into their evaluation procedures, the higher education community is coming together to develop a standard approach for measuring adult student success.
Strategies for Enhancing the Success of Online and Military Students
Veterans, active duty military personnel and online learners represent an ever increasing proportion of college entrants, yet they often lag their peers in terms of degree completion. Learn about some of the proven strategies for helping these students succeed in and after college.
This complementary, one-hour webinar brings together experts from public and private universities across the country. The panel shares best practices and responds questions regarding ways to improve outcomes for online and military students.
What your students aren’t telling you: insights from student coaching professionals
In addition to driving changes in student behavior, coach-student conversations also generate valuable feedback for university administrators. Listen to a panel of experienced, professional coaches from InsideTrack as they discuss what students are telling them about their college experience—which could be different from what you are hearing.
This complementary, one-hour webinar brings together coaches working with traditional and adult students enrolled in ground, online, and hybrid programs. The panel shares unique insights from their work with a broad range of different student populations and advice for administrators looking to turn those insights into action.
