A Panel of SBU students
A focus on thriving in college has the potential to change the way we view student success and to shape the strategies we use to assist students. It shifts our attention from failure prevention to success promotion.
The Symposium examines the construct of thriving as a measure used to understand student success over and above the traditional consideration of gender, ethnicity, generation status, high school grades and admission test scores. As co-author of the Student Satisfaction Inventory, a nationally normed instrument used on more than 1,600 college and university campuses across the United States and Canada, Dr. Schreiner’s report on these national findings provides guidelines for faculty, and academic and student affairs professionals on emerging practices and interventions. Stony Brook University respondents will provide their perspectives on SBU’s efforts in implementing these promising practices.
Co-sponsored by the Office of the Vice President for Student Affairs and the School of Social Welfare, , this Symposium is part of the OVPSA Professional Development Series. Dr. Schreiner’s lecture is also sponsored by the Provost’s Lecture Series.
