Since the 2016 U.S. Presidential election and ensuing news coverage about rural populations, higher education institutions hold a newfound vigor for recruiting and retaining rural students. However, limited research on rural students and their orientation, transition, and retention in postsecondary education exists, and the literature that does often utilizes deficit-based thinking about this population. Join rural higher education scholars, who will discuss research conducted over the past year that illuminates traits, characteristics, knowledge, and cultural backgrounds rural students possess that can inform college and university orientation, transition, and retention practices and policies for rural populations.
