Retention Symposium
Share |


NODA's Retention Symposium is a new educational space for experienced professionals to pursue retention practice knowledge and competency development. 

About
 

 

Retention, like student success, means something different to everyone. Just as students define their own successes differently, we, too, define retention differently. Trending now in student success is the idea of creating a coordinated care network to support students maximize their potential for success. Keeling (2014) submits that "advancing student success requires attention to students as whole people and to their individual and collective well-being. 


When: 
Saturday, October 20 - Sunday, October 21, 2018


Who Should Attend: 
This professional development opportunity is designed for established professionals with decision making authority in their unit/division, or for institutional initiatives that impact retention results. 

Focus areas for the 2018 Retention Symposium include:

  • Creation of a community of care for retention
  • Well-being and student success
  • Growth mindset and early momentum in the first year of college

Symposium participants will address intermediate and advanced NODA competencies in the areas of Theoretical Knowledge, Campus Collaborations, Content Development, Organization & Leadership, and Enrollment Management. Focus will be placed in the following areas: 

  • Knowledge Development and Synthesis: Exhibit knowledge of research and literature; pursue knowledge creation and synthesis; demonstrate awareness of current trends; and find application in orientation, transition, and retention
  • Leadership, Advocacy, and Collaboration: Advocate for program development and representation in institutional planning; create, foster, and sustain collaboration/partnerships; and lead partners and stakeholders in the creation of programming
  • Data Collection, Assessment, and Action: Analyze data, interpret trends, and differentiate factors; assess institutional access, barriers, and pathways; and apply data and information to create and modify OTR strategies and partnerships
