The presentation “Kids These Days: Using College Student Development Theory to Strengthen Student Success” will take place on Wednesday, December 2 at 5:30 p.m. Access the presentation via this Zoom.
College student development theory is an ever-expanding field that investigates what changes take place for those who choose to pursue higher education. These theories serve as a solid foundation for individuals who work in student affairs or campus life. ESU’s Campus Life and Inclusive Excellence leadership team will explore a number of these theories during the presentation. They will discuss major elements of psychosocial, intellectual/moral, identity, and environmental college student development theories and how they are utilized to enhance student success. This team will guide attendees through a case study that will examine a complex concern that many institutions of higher education struggle with and individuals will be left with concrete ways to apply these theories to their own practice, whether inside or outside the classroom.
