Event Details

Building an Inclusive First-Year Experience

Educators committed to student success are continuously looking for ways to improve the college experience. 

What can we do to better engage students' curiosity and interest in learning? How can we make choices for academic programs and student services that increase students' chances for success? What factors matter most in planning for the success of new students? 

This regional, one-day, drive-in conference provides a forum for academic and student affairs professionals to share ideas, resources, and engaging pedagogy to enhance their instruction and support of first-year students.
