As part of our continuous planning cycle, the Planning and Budget Council of FGCU is hosting a workshop coordinated by the Enrollment and Retention Management Committee. The implementation of this planning and assessment workshop is integral to advancing our campus discussion of enrollment planning and is well aligned with many of the stated goals of the University embodied in our mission and vision statements.
Our featured speaker and program facilitator for the day will be the nationally acclaimed, Dr. George Kuh. Dr. Kuh, professor emeritus of Indiana University, is an eminent scholar in research on assessment, student development, and campus environments. He was integral in the development of the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) that we participate in on a bi-annual basis. Please take a moment to learn more about him: http://nsse.iub.edu/html/staff.cfm?iuid=kuh
First of its kind in our history, the workshop will include a morning plenary session featuring Dr. Kuh, commentary from key FGCU faculty and staff, and conclude with a collaborative planning session on improving student engagement and success. We will come away with a broad understanding of what we are currently doing to engage our students and also identify strategies we could implement to increase student persistence.
I encourage you to make your commitment today to participate in this important event by blocking your calendar and registering for the workshop via this online registration form located here
