This presentation will focus on academic coaching and intervention strategies for students on probation, first-generation students from low socioeconomic backgrounds, underrepresented students, and students who engage in high-risk behavior. The presenter identifies as all of the above, and will reference his own struggles as a student who abused drugs and alcohol before stopping out.

The audience will be introduced to unconventional strategies for reaching, recognizing, and empowering students on the margins and/or at-risk of being dismissed from their institutions. Participants will also have an opportunity to share resources and best practices.

Facilitated by Jason Wiegand, Greenlee School of Journalism and Communication, College of LAS

Registration is required, no later than November 17.
Audience: Academic Advisers and Faculty Advisers
