Elevating Student Success in Our Current Environment Conversation Series: 'Shoot for the Moon and Reach for the Stars: Encouraging Students to Strive for More' - March 9

I am excited to announce that Katherine "Katie" La Vecchio, complex director in the Residence Life Office, will present “Shoot for the Moon and Reach for the Stars: Encouraging Students to Strive for More” as the next speaker in our Elevating Student Success in Our Current Environment Conversation Series on Tuesday, March 9, from 12:15 to 1:15 p.m. This series is co-sponsored by the Title III Task Force and the Professional Development Center. Please register online.

What does student success mean at Buffalo State College? What are the individual ways that we cultivate student success at the college, and how can we as individuals apply these practices to our own work to support the students we serve? Join us as we learn from our colleagues their definition of student success and the specific practices we as staff or faculty members can apply to better support the intellectual, personal, and professional growth of our students. Each conversation will involve a 10-to-15-minute presentation from a staff or faculty member focused on his or her definition of student success and effective practices that others can apply to their work with students. These conversations will then be followed by a 45-to-50-minute facilitated conversation by a member of the Title III Task Force about how we can apply these practices to our individual work with students. We will also discuss similar practices colleagues found to be effective and build off of the ideas presented to elevate these practices across campus.
