Two provosts explore how to guide students from today’s courses to tomorrow’s careers in this on-demand webinar
“If you ask how the last two years have changed my view of student success, I’d say it hasn’t changed a whole lot — what it’s done is made student success a lot harder,” shared Lou Reinisch, Ph.D., Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs at Texas A&M University—Kingsville during The Future of Student Success, a recent online panel discussion presented by EduNav. “The past two years have created a tremendous amount of anxiety among our students …there’s a lot of stability problems, …plus we’re dealing with students who have had a year or more of missed education.”
Fellow panelist Deborah Preston, Ph.D., former Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs at Raritan Valley Community College and incoming President of Mercer County Community College, added: “For me, what has changed is that I’m looking at student success in smaller increments. For so long we thought about student success at the community college level as graduation and transfer, graduation and transfer, graduation and transfer, and every now and then we extended it to your first semester credit success rate, but we tend to measure it in fairly large chunks.”
