Unlocking the Door to Degree Completion: Key Strategies to Transform the Returning Adult Student Experience
Mon 14 Oct, 2019, 13:15–14:05
Presentation Description. Please provide a brief description of your session. This description will be used to describe your session in the conference program.
Today’s workforce includes millions of adults who started college and left with no credential. Inviting students back to finish what they started without fundamentally changing the student experience does not work. Discover the lessons learned from both the University of Memphis and Complete Florida’s early Welcome Back campaigns that have resulted in a variety of best practices for degree completion that focus on accelerated and low-cost alternatives while maintaining academic quality. A key strategy in the Welcome Back process is to increase both access and equity to educational attainment by partnering with employers to identify their employees with the most need and putting systems in place to support student success.
