Student Success

About the Webconference Higher education presents students with an overwhelming number of opportunities for academic, professional, and personal growth inside and outside of the classroom. Unfortunately, many students may not know what opportunities are available, which best fit their interests and needs, or when to engage with specific opportunities or services. Experience mapping is a […]

Join us for this 3-part webconference series where we explore how you can create opportunities to build student confidence through early academic wins, leverage peers to normalize help-seeking behavior, and reinforce the connection between students' career aspirations and education.

This webinar will look at a number of practices that universities have successfully used to integrate experiential learning into the curriculum, from connecting faculty and students with community partners to place students in internships, to leveraging on campus employment to give students exposure to professional skills.

About the Webconference Each year a significant number of credits are lost due to failing grades and student withdrawals from courses.

Administrative Savings

These presentations provide institutions with the tools to identify opportunities for administrative process improvement and embed a reengineering mindset among frontline staff and managers alike, all with the goal of reclaiming lost productivity, increasing staff capacity to facilitate a growth mindset, and achieving cost savings.

Unstable internal and external funding, decreasing award success rates, and increasing regulatory compliance have created an environment where researchers are submitting more (and more complex) proposals than ever, collectively increasing the administrative workload. This series explores best practices for streamlining administrative processes, building (and retaining) faculty-focused administrative support services, increasing proposal success rates, and tackling compliance issues.

Fundraising and Alumni Relations

To build partnerships with campus leaders, advancement must take the lead in creating opportunities for academic partners to succeed and in building a culture of engagement in development activities.
