Get research-backed tips for how to boost student success

Joe CuseoFaculty and staff are invited to workshops and keynote addresses featuring Joe Cuseo, a nationally known educator and author on college student success.

Cuseo will present “Promoting Student Success across Campus: Seven Timeless & University Principles” Monday, May 2, and Tuesday, May 3, from noon to 1:30 p.m. each day. The May 2 presentation will be held in Adelbert Hall’s Toepfer Room and a location for the May 3 presentation has yet to be determined.

During his talk, Cuseo will make a research-based case that student success depends on both student effort and institutional effort, i.e., it involves an inextricable, reciprocal relationship between what the university does for its students and what students do for themselves.

Research suggests that there are timeless, universal principles underlying student motivation, retention (persistence to degree completion) and academic achievement. In his interactive presentation, Cuseo will identify seven research-based principles of student learning, motivation and persistence will be identified along. He also will explain high-priority, high-impact practices for implementing each of them, inside and outside the classroom.

These universal principles can be used as a foundation for building a student-centered campus culture unified by common language and common practices that promote student success across academic disciplines and organizational divisions.

In addition, several breakout sessions will be offered.

Registration for the keynote addresses and breakout sessions is available online. Register by April 27.

The Office of First Year Experience and Family Programs, Office of Undergraduate Studies, and Office of Residence Life will sponsor the event.
