  Supporting the Achievement and Success of At-Risk Students Presented by Tom Brown  
(Special Event)

This presentation and discussion will describe the characteristics, challenges, and strengths of student cohorts that may be at greater risk for leaving college before achieving their goals. Also presented will be effective individual and programmatic strategies and interventions for academic advisor and support services providers, counselors, instructional faculty, and others working with specific at-risk groups.

The session will introduce several theories of student learning and motivation and identify concrete, tangible strategies that can increase student engagement, achievement, and persistence. We will also examine some of the cognitive and behavioral barriers that hinder student engagement, achievement and persistence, including attributions, task/ego involvement, and reluctance to seek assistance. Participants will consider how an “intrusive” advising approach can prove most effective in challenging and supporting students who may be at-risk. Cohorts discussed will include FIRST YEAR and UNDER-PREPARED STUDENTS.
