Teleconference March 30 on ‘Cultivating Campus Cultures That Value Student Success’

“Cultivating Campus Cultures That Value Student Success,” a teleconference sponsored by the National Resource Center for the First-Year Experience and Students in Transition, will be held from noon to 2 p.m. Thursday, March 30, in Room 155, Murray-Herrick Campus Center.

This is the second conference in the 2006 Teleconference and Webcast Series that focuses on student retention and success in colleges and universities.

All faculty and staff are invited to join the offices of Academic Counseling, Dean of Students, Campus and Residence Life and the Minnesota College Personnel Association at this event. Bring your lunch; dessert and beverages will be provided.

The teleconference will address the following questions:

  • Before universities initiate change, they must understand what works on campus and what doesn’t. What does your institution value?
  • What people and activities are celebrated?
  • Do standard operating procedures reflect what the university’s mission says is desirable?
  • Do you think change is necessary to achieve campus goals but feel powerless to accomplish it?

Join panelists who have influenced campus cultures successfully as they tackle these and other fundamental questions and offer strategies to broach this conversation on your campus.
