4 Criteria for Achieving Your Purpose: A Unique Look at Goal Setting

Time: 8:30am 

Speakers:  Shannon Brumfield

Why is it that most of us look back on our lives and ask the question, "what if?" What if I had finished my degree, would I be working in my dream job now? What if I had I married my first love; would my marriage have been better? What if I had acted on that idea to start my own business, would I be enjoying the fruits of my efforts? We ask ourselves the "what if" questions because we have regrets. We feel that if we had chosen a different path, things might be better than they are now, but would they? They would definitely be different, but would we be in a better place? These are four tips I have used to narrow down my goals and achieve success.



Veterans Empowered: Identifying Civilian Work Interests & Careers

While the session is geared towards empowering nontraditional student veterans and current military, any job-seeker can derive benefits from learning about the tools and resources O*Net provides.

11:00 AM Tracks

Increasing Persistence for First-Year, Online, Adult Students

Time: 11:00 am 

Speaker: Adam Binkerd and Sarah Spangler, Indiana Wesleyan University


Adult online students have unique challenges. While hungry to learn, the distractions of adult life can disconnect students from their educational goals. Similar to traditional students, they desire community engagement, learning, belonging, support, and hope. Success in online education today demands that institutions unveil their humanity and welcome students to join a collaborative learning environment. Join us as we share our wild journey of creating a strong community, unifying vision, and its powerful impact on student success and persistence.



Maximizing Non-Traditional Students Transfer Options: Targeting high-retention, selective schools to maximize bachelor's degree completion

Time: 11:00 am 

Speaker: Nancy Lee Sánchez, Kaplan Educational Foundation

This session will discuss the importance of developing programming and support services for high-achieving, non-traditional students in community colleges while targeting high-retention, selective four-year institutions that best meet the needs, and fully support the educational and career goals of this talented, but often under-served population of students. Through collaborative policies focusing on strengthening the culture of transfer, informed by the educational, financial and personal needs of students, the session will provide data on the benefits of applying to selective four-year institutions, a road map and timeline to support students through the admissions application process, helping the student develop a transfer-bound profile, methods to help students reduce costs of applying for multiple colleges, and examples of “transfer-fit” selective schools



Advising College Students from Rural Communities: An Advisor’s Perspective

Time: 11:00 am 

Speaker: Stacy Renee Doyle, University of Oklahoma

There has been extensive research on the role of college advisors and the advising processes in overall student success, including graduation. However, there has been little research focusing on the impact of cultural capital in the advising process. The overall structure of the institution of higher education favors the dominant cultural capital and continues to facilitate social inequities in higher education. This structure impacts all aspects of the college campus, including the advising process.



Boots to Backpacks: Overcoming Barriers to Success

Time: 11:00 am 

Speaker: Brook R. Dickison, Ed.D., Angelo State University; Susan Williams, Angelo State University, and Twyla Tasker, Ph.D.,  Angelo State University

Veterans are becoming an increasing demographic on college campuses today. In fact, approximately, 250,000 service personnel are separating from the military each year. Institutions of higher education have the opportunity to provide these non-traditional students with access to an education by eliminating barriers that disrupt the academic journey. In this session, participants will travel the path of veteran students in a simulated game of Get a Clue: Get a Degree. Education can be gained or lost depending on the access or barriers encountered. Presenters will share the cards that could be dealt to promote success.
