This strand is recommended for institutional leaders in both Academic and Student Affairs, including presidents, vice presidents, provosts, and deans. Participants will focus on the role of leaders in reviewing and assessing their institution’s implementation of an AVID campus plan with an emphasis on student persistence and completion. Strand activities are designed to foster the development and/or articulation of shared goals regarding student success. Using pragmatic tools and current research, participants will consider how Academic and Student Affairs can work to create and sustain collaborative efforts, as well as cultivate an institutional culture that values this work. This strand will also offer strategies for assessing and overcoming current institutional obstacles to this collaboration. Finally, strand participants will have the opportunity to reflect on their individual leadership role(s) and ways to build productive working relationships across divisions.
