Colleges are increasingly seeking to attract and retain nontraditional-age learners. However, meeting their needs means rethinking student-support services, which have long catered to students age 18 to 22. How can colleges change their approach to better meet the needs of a growing population of students focused on career growth?
A panel of experts joins The Chronicle to share their ideas in a coming virtual forum, “Shifting Student Support to Adult Learners.” Join us as we ask and answer such questions as:
- How, specifically, do the needs of adult learners differ from those of traditional-age students?
- What are colleges doing to provide a similar level of support for learners who need a different approach?
- How should student-support offices and roles change?
