Lost and Found: Supporting Student Navigation Through Library-Student Affairs Partnerships
Session at DREAM Annual Convening 2023
On Thursday, February 16 at 4:30 – 5:00 pm, Ithaka S+R’s Melissa Blankstein and Borough of Manhattan College’s Jean Amaral will present a session at Achieving the Dream’s DREAM Annual Convening 2023. The session will center on college fluency—a new term that describes the knowledge and corresponding set of abilities that enable students and staff to effectively locate and use relevant college services, programs, and resources, which can help students to successfully engage with and self-advocate within the culture and bureaucracy of higher education institutions in order to achieve their goals.
The speakers will introduce a new project, funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services, which explores how libraries and student affairs can partner on college fluency to improve student success.
