Supporting Student Success
Improving student success is an important priority at most U.S. two-year colleges (2YCs), but is especially challenging given the wide range of abilities, preparation, and goals of 2YC students. Additional resources are currently under development addressing areas of interest such as working with English Language Learners, issues surrounding Neurodiversity in the 2YC classroom, and supporting Veterans and Active Military personnel in the geosciences.
Stereotype Threat and Solo Status are two related issues that underrepresented populations often face in the academia. Knowing what they are, what triggers their negative effects, and how to minimize their impacts on students' success is important forhelping all students be successful in our classes.

This workshop brought together faculty, administrators, and education researchers from across the country, to share successful programs and activities for supporting the success of all students in geoscience at 2YCs, both in and outside the classroom.
