Bridging the gap for low-income students webinar Sept. 10

Submitted by Sara Opperud

A webinar "Strategically Bridging the Gap for Low-Income Students Between College Access and Success: Academic and Retention Outcomes" will be from 1-2 p.m. Sept. 10 in the K-State Student Union's Room 226.

Presenter are Sarah Collins and Dale Tampke from the University of North Texas.

The webinar will discuss the increasing cost of college attendance and how access and success programs for students from low-income families are emerging in postsecondary institutions across the country. These programs strategically leverage academic support services and financial aid to increase rates of academic attainment achieved by low-income students. This program summarizes the efficacy of such a program to facilitate academic success and retention in the first year at a large emerging research university in Texas.

If you are unable to attend the webinar during the time listed above but are still interested in the information, please email lhenders@k-state.edu. The associate vice president for student life office will receive a link to the recorded program. The link will be available for 30 days after the webinar date. This info will also be distributed to the academic advising listserv.
