WEBINAR 1 TITLE: Understanding and Implementing the Seidman Formula & Model for Student Success
DATE/TIME: Thursday, October 15th, 1-3pm EDT

This webinar will demonstrate how a college faculty, with administrative support, can prepare their programs & courses so students will have the greatest probability of success both personally & academically. The integration of college services & programs (assessment, developmental courses, career services, faculty, financial aid,
internships, learning & classroom communities, learning resource centers, mission statement, orientation) is critical to student success and a vital part of this model.

WEBINAR 2 TITLE: A Data-Driven Approach to Increase Student Success: There’s No Silver Bullet But, There is a Silver Process
DATE/TIME: Wednesday, October 21st, 1-3pm EDT

This session will provide a step-by-step approach that you can use to increase persistence, course completion, and graduation rates of underrepresented, low-income, and non-traditional college students. Participants will be able to implement this strategy immediately and see results quickly. Electronic tools used to assess and analyze student success, as well as intervention strategies will be demonstrated, discussed and emailed to participants. Specifically, participants will receive tools for quantitative and qualitative data collection and analysis. Templates will also be made available to each participant.
