Faculty Workshop Part II: Student Retention

Friday, September 22, 2017 — 1:30PM - 3:00PM

The second part of the faculty workshop will focus on student retention of underrepresented students, as it is recognized that good retention is important to improve student graduation rates. The session will include a presentation from the recipient of the CMD-IT University Award for Retention of Minorities and Students with Disabilities in Computer Science. The presentation will be followed by engaging discussions about recruiting, yield, retention and graduation. The goal of this session is to provide an opportunity for participants to share good practices as well as learn about good practices related to student retention.
