"Just as students can be underprepared for college, colleges can be underprepared for students; just as students may be at risk because of their background characteristics and behaviors, colleges may put students at risk because of their institutional policies and practices."
Students being 'unprepared' for college experience, is a fact that colleges and universities are still continuing to lament on, and it is quite unlikely that the lamentation is to cease in the near future, due to the level of unpreparedness that the future cohorts of entering college students have.

Preparing the underprepared not only benefits students by increasing their prospects for college success and gainful employment, it also benefits campuses by increasing retention rates, managing enrollments, and maintaining fiscal stability.

In addition to the PowerPoint slides, participants will receive the following narrative, referenced manuscripts authored by the facilitator:
