Strategic Integration of Student Support Services

It would be easier if education was just a matter of teaching students things they don’t know, but, in reality, students at all levels often need advice, support, and skills training that goes beyond what they receive in the classroom. Counseling and support services exist, but too often there’s too little connection and communication between these services and the academic instruction students receive. We want to offer strategies that bring these areas together to put students on a continuum of personal growth and classroom education.

Join us for a discussion focused on the premise and practices of supporting under-represented and under-prepared students using this strategic integration. The conversation will feature themes for putting this into action, as well as information on how to design, implement, and execute strategies for integrating student services in any educational setting.

  • Basic approaches to identifying needs and bringing student services and classroom instruction together.
  • Creating spaces and opportunities for collaboration between support staff and academic faculty.
  • Bringing together students with similar needs to work together on their coursework.
  • Taking a holistic approach to teaching the skills of lifelong learning.
