Medaille College is planning to hold a virtual two-day student success symposium on January 21 and 22, from 8:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., titled “Student Success Symposium: Building Bridges to Enhance Higher Education During the Pandemic.” This symposium is designed to provide professional development opportunities for Medaille’s faculty and staff that will allow them to discuss student learning and retention within the context of understanding how to best support the College’s students. The training will provide valuable approaches on how to engage students through curricular and co-curricular activities, acknowledging that students of all backgrounds need extra support during these unprecedented times.
The two-day symposium is a cross-campus collaborative effort, and the College strives to accomplish the following:
- Share best practices, approaches and innovative concepts to assist the campus community when working with diverse student populations.
- Provide faculty and staff a professional development opportunity to enhance and/or build innovative strategies for student success that are critical to advance learning outcomes.
- Connect with the campus community to share ideas and scholarship that enrich our profession.
Associate Professor and Department of Education Chair Jeffrey A. Faunce, Ph.D., will serve as the moderator for both days, and other faculty and staff experts will serve as panelists or moderators for each breakout session. Each session will focus on students and how to best meet their needs by strengthening the Medaille community as collaborators for success.
All faculty and staff members are invited to register to be a part of this exciting opportunity to discuss student success at Medaille.
