Cultivating the Potential in At-Risk Students

Description :Category : Digital Recordings

The retention and graduation of at-risk students has become a priority on many college and university campuses. Key points in this process are advising strategies that foster student self-authorship and thus move students from the periphery to the center of campus life. In this slidecast presentation, NACADA Multicultural Concerns Commission Chair Blane Harding and NACADA Assistant Director Marsha Miller broaden and clarify our understanding of what is meant by at-risk students, identify general group characteristics, provide strategies in which advisors can enhance their effectiveness in helping this population reach their potential, and dDiscuss student responsibilities in this process.
