Beyond Admission: College Retention and Completion

It is simply not enough for our students to get accepted to college. they must also have the tools and support to succeed once on campus. Join us for dinner and a conversation about how we can prepare and support students during the college transition, as well as how college, community-based organizations, and high school counselors can best support students once they are on campus.

We are pleased to announce our two noted speakers for this year’s conference:

  • Dr. Roger G. Richardson, Ph.D., is the associate vice president for academic and student affairs and dean for the first-year experience at Ithaca College. Richardson served on the Ithaca City School District Board of Education from 2003 to 2006, and is a current trustee of New Roots Charter School and the History Center in Ithaca, New York. Richardson has taught courses in psychology and sociology and has coordinated and implemented social justice seminars and civic engagement service-learning projects within and outside the United States for undergraduate students for over 20 years. His research interests include college students’ academic/social integration, academic and student affairs collaboration, and student retention in higher education.
