I would like to begin a discusson on understanding barriers to employment and the connection to student retention.
To begin, I inivte you to review the follwoing information from the NRS on Barriers to Employment: https://nrsweb.org/training-ta/barriers-employment.
As you review the information, consider the following:
- This informatoin will help identify obstacles that can impede students’ full participation
- The information will help create an awaress of student groups so appropriate interventions can be put into place.
Consider sharing how are you using this informatoin to design retention initiatives. I look forward to the discussion.
