Central Texas College Access Retreat

Austin Community College
July 22, 2017

In June 2017, TG sponsored a College Access Retreat in partnership with E3 Alliance. Thirteen non-profit organizations directly serving first generation college goers, along with 5 colleges across Central Texas came together in a working retreat to share best practices in supporting student success. A higher education panel presentation focused on gaps in academic and soft skills that first generation students struggle with and provided recommendations for program focus. Panelists included:

Dr. Michael Nava, Associate Dean for Student Services, University College at Texas State University

KC Pospisil, Associate Vice President of Student Success & Retention at Concordia University

Noah Corn, Student Retention Coordinator at St. Edward’s University

Dr. Eric Dieter, Executive Director, Pre-College Academic Readiness Programs at University of Texas at Austin
