This session will focus on supporting Academic Advisors/Faculty to understand and increase their awareness of students on academic probation. The presentation will focus on students who are first generation, low socioeconomic status (SES), and person of color. In examining studies and comparing findings of students on academic probation, little has changed about the poor performances on national, state, and local assessments (ATD, 2016; Jenkins, 2014; Mulvey, 2008). The audience will experience challenges and strengths of students whose personal, social and academics often put them at risk of persisting in their education. Strategies that can motivate and support students’ persistence will be discussed in this interactive session.
