Event Description

Collect Data to Identify Your Student Retention Weaknesses

If your post-secondary institution continues to struggle to keep minority student persistence and completion rates up, you’re not alone. After all, African American college students and others face significant, unique challenges to academic success. If you want to increase minority student retention and pave a path to learning, you must face up to—and correct—the key factors holding this population back.

In this insightful webinar, higher ed consultant Jerald L. Henderson, PhD. helps you do just that. He will outline what research shows to be the greatest real-world influences on whether minority students succeed or fail in college or university. (Hint: These key factors include institutional racial climate, faculty pedagogy, peer-to-peer collaboration, and support services.)

Then, going beyond theory, Henderson will equip you with practical solutions: You’ll learn to collect and analyze meaningful data to identify the specific factors that are preventing minority student success at your particular institution. And you’ll learn how to forge collaborative partnerships—both within and outside your institution—to improve minority student retention and follow through.

Now is the time to re-examine the institutional practices that are failing your minority students. This program will help you understand your school’s strengths and weaknesses—and make a much-needed paradigm shift in how you approach student success initiatives for minority students.
