Academic and Student Support for Online Learners
Creating Wraparound Supports through Internal Partnerships: Advising, IT, & IR

By bringing together advising, IT, and institutional research / analytics professionals, The American Women's College has launched a variety of projects to achieve wrap-around supports that contribute to retention and graduation rates 20% above national averages. Attendees will brainstorm how such teamwork could transpire at their institutions to promote increased student success.
