Feb 14, 2019

Seven presentations by faculty and staff at the assessment conference explored the intersection of academic programs and student support services, from first day on campus to career interview. These presentations highlighted faculty and staff's commitment to the whole student experience leading to improved student learning and retention.  

Questions from the over fifty attending faculty and staff ranged from "would you be willing to do a workshop on this topic?"  to "what strategies do you use to assist students with narrowing their research topic?" Many moments like these echoed the conference motto: "come learn from colleagues." You can review the presentations here (Pacific log-in required).
