Title: Advising Rural and Small Town Students
Lead Presenter: Karen Ganss
Date: October 08, 2021    Time: 3:15 pm - 4:15 pm
Room: 212, DECC
Abstract: Students from rural and small towns are gaining recent national recognition as an underrepresented population in higher education, especially due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Research shows this population enrolls and persists in college at lower rates than urban peers, among other challenges. Not only do rural students overcome many barriers to pursue their educational goals, but they bring with them unique strengths and cultural values that often manifest themselves in advising settings. Join this session to learn more about this unique population and the ways in which you, as an Academic Advisor, can assist in the success and persistence of rural students in higher education. Attendees will be provided tangible advice to use with students immediately and resources to learn more about the importance of rural education.
