Research findings from NASPA – Student Affairs Administrators in Higher Education indicate that emergency resources and on-campus work programs can be levers for improving outcomes for low-income students whose financial and personal challenges could impede their progress toward degree completion. The session will address components of robust financial support programs, particularly the establishment and coordination of partnerships among multiple departments, including financial aid and student affairs. Three senior-level administrators will share practical approaches for successful delivery of resources; strategies for administering, communicating, and sustaining financial capability options; and processes for assessing the programs’ influence on student success.
