We’ll begin the day by examining three trends shaping the student success landscape over the next decade: K-12 learning disruption, mental health, and staff turnover—and offer guidance on how your institution can weather these trends. This session will include a deep dive on improving mental health support, including the role technology should play in coordinating between people and offices across campus to support student wellbeing.   


Despite higher ed’s focus on success and equity, graduation rate disparities between all students and Black and Latino men persist. In this session we’ll review new research on how institutions can more proactively contribute to Black and Latino men’s retention, graduation, and belongingness. We’ll also share foundational and progressive tactics you can use to help Black and Latino men build and nurture the peer and mentor relationships that are crucial to their success.  


This session will explore what today’s students expect from their higher ed experience and how you can deliver it. From enrollment to peer engagement to career preparation, college and university leaders are investing time and resources to build personalized and tech-enabled experiences across the student lifecycle. We’ll discuss how today’s student expectations are being shaped by the consumer economy and offer examples of institutions designing new experiences.  

We will close the day with forward-looking questions to help you prioritize how to bring the ideas discussed across the day to life.
