We’ll begin this session with a discussion about involving families and communities and their critical role in retaining and recruiting students in TRIO programs. Then, we’ll review several research supported practices for retaining students; including the culture of care, alumni mentoring, practices supporting the successful transition of students from pre-college to postsecondary, focus on the first four critical weeks of college, extended first-year experiences, development of non-cognitive skills, and sophomore year support. Session also will share resources to locate effective practices for Indigenous and Other Hard to Reach Student Populations. Later breakout sessions will apply this information to specific student population.

Concerns for student well-being should underpin serving Native American, Alaskan and Pacific Islander participants. Acknowledging that trauma and grief can be significant educational barriers to learning and persistence is particularly significant when serving these student populations. Many of these participants may have experienced racism and other impacts to personhood, have been wards of the state, faced domestic violence, homelessness or food/housing insecurity, and other personal barriers.

Session will focus on supporting wellness and mental well-being.
