UT Austin’s 360 Connections as a model for City Tech?

November 11 @ 10:00 am 12:00 pm

How can we improve student retention and success, especially in the critical first year?

The University of Texas at Austin has realized significant improvements with a strategy that places every incoming student into a defined cohort program. On Friday, November 11, Austin’s Assistant Dean Patty Micks will speak about this nationally recognized initiative, 360 Connections. Her presentation will be followed by brief descriptions of existing City Tech programs that might contribute to a similar approach at our college. This is a promising model in that it could leverage our wide variety of existing programs, and accommodate the diversity of student needs and interests.

So what is a “cohort program”?

Whatever your role, if you are interested in contributing or learning more, please join the discussion.

Organized by City Tech’s Developing Hispanic Serving Institutions Title V STEM Success Collaborative.
