As always, host Bob Barrett selects an Academic Minute to air during The Best of Our Knowledge.
Each week this program examines some of the issues unique to college campuses, looks at the latest research, and invites commentary from experts and administrators from all levels of education.
For this week‘s edition (#1416), Bob has selected Tricia Seifert’s segment on successful college students. Dr. Seifert, associate professor of adult and higher education at Montana State University, explores whether a different path might be needed in the future.
Tricia Seifert is an associate professor in the Adult & Higher Education program at Montana State University and maintains a status only appointment in the Higher Education program at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education, University of Toronto. She uses sociological theories and principles to examine issues related to post-secondary student learning and success. Her interest in understanding how colleges and universities organize to support student success stems largely from her administrative background working in orientation and transition programs, residence life, student leadership programs, and fraternity/sorority life. Having worked at both large and small post-secondary institutions, Tricia witnessed the interplay between organizational structures and culture with respect to how campuses support student success.
