- This event has passed.
This events brings together higher education leaders and student affairs practitioners in the region to engage findings and best practice implications presented in the newest volume of How College Affects Students: 21st Century Evidence that Higher Education Works.
The third volume of How College Affects Students synthesizes over 1,800 rigorous research studies conducted from 2002-2013 to provide a deeper understanding of how the undergraduate experience affects diverse student populations. It covers different aspects of college impact, including: cognitive and moral development, attitudes and values, psychosocial change, educational attainment, and the economic, career, and quality of life outcomes after college.
Translating 21st Century Research to Practice: A Dialogue About How College Affects Students will feature two of the book’s authors — Dr. Matt Mayhew and Dr. Alyssa Rockenbach — as well as a panel of student affairs leaders from the region. Collectively, they will discuss implications for practice illuminated by research findings and related to the promotion of student success in college. Following the author and panelist presentations, the audience will have an opportunity for further dialogue in roundtable discussions over lunch.
The event is free, but space is limited.
