BISMARCK - More than 180 people from the North Dakota University System's 11 colleges and two tribal colleges attended a recent "Changing Learner" student retention and success summit in Bismarck.

"With new educational technologies and changing student demographics, our campuses need to be ready to help students succeed in this changing environment," said Aimee Copas, NDUS academic affairs associate.

Understanding those needs was enhanced at the summit by senior student and academic affairs officers compiling teams of 10-20 individuals including faculty members, institutional researchers, professional advisers, registrars, student leaders, financial aid staff, mental health counselors, substance abuse prevention specialists and residence life staff.

Discussion topics among team members related to student retention and success included: effective academic advising and various advising models, utilizing educational technologies, meeting the need of the new college student (e.g. returning veterans, adult learners), and understanding mental health and substance abuse in higher education.
