Event Description

These Pervasive Principles Are Timeless and Universally Effective in Promoting Student Motivation, Retention and Academic Achievement.

"Student success in college depends on both student effort and institutional effort; it's a reciprocal relationship between what the college does for its students and what students do for themselves."
- Joe Cuseo

Enhancing student success in college is a national concern because growing numbers of students are entering higher education academically underprepared and disengaged. Research suggests that there are timeless and universal educational principles that promote student motivation, retention (persistence to graduation), and academic achievement. These pervasive principles are associated with positive outcomes for all students, regardless of their college-entry characteristics, but they have particularly powerful effects on at-risk students.

This program by educational expert Joe Cuseo is going to talk about specific, high-impact practices that can be used inside and outside the classroom to implement these seven, research-based principles of student success:

  1. Personal validation
  2. Self-efficacy
  3. Finding meaning (purpose)
  4. Active involvement (engagement)
  5. Reflection
  6. Social integration
  7. Self-awareness

You will be provided with a common language that can be used by all members of the campus community to foster a culture of student success across campus. You will also receive an extensive set of research-based references supporting the program's practical recommendations and manuscripts containing additional scholarship and assessment strategies related to the program topic. The program will effectively integrate research, theory, and practice in a way that articulates 'what to do' and 'why to do it.'

Session Highlights:

Acquire detailed, practical strategies for:

  • Promoting students' personal validation by creating a welcoming first impression to campus and getting to know your students at a personal level.
  • Increasing students' sense of self-efficacy by balancing challenge with support, giving them proper feedback and providing students with successful role models.
  • Helping students find personal meaning in their college experience by intentionally articulating the purpose and value of a college education, and by helping them make meaningful connections between: (a) courses and disciplines, (b) academic and experiential learning, and (c) their current life and future goals.
  • Involving students actively in the learning process through use of engaging pedagogy inside the classroom and intentional strategies for engaging students in learning experiences outside the classroom.
  • Socially integrating students into the campus community by involving them in small-groups and team-learning experiences in class, and by intentionally connecting students to faculty, staff, and peers outside the classroom.
  • Encouraging students to reflect on academic and experiential learning by providing them 'quiet time' for thinking and opportunities for reflective writing in response to deep-thinking prompts.
  • Increasing students' self-awareness and mindfulness with respect of their learning strategies, styles, habits, ways of thinking, and educational/vocational choices.
