“Reflections On Strategies Aimed at Assisting AHANA students (African American, Hispanic, Asian and Native American) to Persist and Graduate from Predominantly White Colleges and Universities.”
Donald Brown, Ed.D. - This presentation will focus on strategies that were conceptualized, developed and imple-mented to assist low-income AHANA students who possessed high level of motivation to persist and graduate from one of the nations premier institutions, Boston College. Para-mount among those strategies were engendering collaborative relationships with diverse sectors of the University, creating a welcoming environment, developing a summer bridge program, and providing a comprehensive academic support program which pays attention to the academic, social, cultural, and spiritual needs of AHANA students. This interactive presentation should be of special interest to students, faculty, staff and administrators.
Light lunch will be served.
