Student success is a complex issue, involving instructors, administrators, and students. Often, attitudes are as important as policies and programs. This session will offer perspectives from psychology, large-section course instruction, scholarship on higher education, and student affairs. Panelists will discuss the relationship of institutional values of diversity and accessibility to goals of student success, the role and effectiveness of co-curricular and academic support programs, and the difference between achievement and ability. The discussion will also address the student experience, helping higher education professionals understand the role of student motivation, mindset, and self-confidence. Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions and will leave with insights for working with at-risk students.
