About the Institute

Sophomore students have typically been the overlooked "middle-children" in higher education. With increasing awareness of second-year struggles, what resources and support can be provided to stabilize the sophomore year? The Institute on Sophomore Student Success will allow attendees the opportunity to examine trends and practices connected to building a comprehensive and intentional approach to ensure the success of sophomore students. Individual sessions are designed to build on one another so that participants leave with a personalized action plan for use on their home campuses. Institute faculty will employ group work, problem solving, case studies, discussion, and other active strategies to engage participants in learning.
