Schools that listen to students can improve retention and graduation. Students say they are stretched to their limits financially and that the demands on their time as working students force them to adopt academic shortcuts that reduce their likelihood of graduating. Through its Student Financial Wellness Survey of 57 colleges across 12 states, and through a massive qualitative study on low food security among college students, Trellis Company has been helping colleges understand the interplay of student finances and student success. Come to this session to hear how school leaders at very different institutions address their common challenge — addressing the basic needs of students.
