Free Webinar

April 18, 2012
Have you ever had a student walk into your classroom that       had the spark, yet had not been successful at achieving his or her       scholastic potential? Join us on Thursday,       April 26th, at 2:00 p.m. Eastern, when Stratford       University Campus Dean, Dr. Michelle D. Bicey, and Campus Director, Dr.       Patricia S. Miller, will discuss their three prong approach to retaining       these “diamonds in the rough.”

This presentation will give attendees the opportunity to       learn the three prong approach to student persistence and retention:       Instruction, Advisement, and Student Support. Attendees will also learn       how to build a student focused environment that cultivates the student       and encourages persistence and retention.

To access the web-based portion of the webinar:
Go to       and follow the prompts under “join a conference” for entering       your name, company name, and the pass code 68257640.

For the audio portion:

The webinar will last approximately one hour, including time       for a question and answer session. This is a free APSCU member benefit       and no pre-registration is required. Please contact APSCU Program       Manager, Monty Cox, at       if you have any questions.
