While students are presented with many options after completing high school, the path to post-secondary success is filled with uncertainty and challenges. How do we best guide students to make well-informed decisions about their post-secondary options?

Led by HGSE faculty member Mandy Savitz-Romer and designed for school- and community-based professionals, this program bridges the gap between research and practice, building upon the strong foundation of existing practices while deepening understanding of the critical issues that influence post-secondary readiness and success.

In this program, you will:

  • EXAMINE the research behind adolescent development and how it applies to preparing students for post-secondary success
  • CONSIDER the effects of race, family income, disability, and immigration status on post-secondary opportunity and success
  • IDENTIFY opportunities and barriers for students and learn effective approaches for ensuring the success of all students
  • DEVELOP systems and learning plans for supporting students on paths to post-secondary readiness and success.
