The Caring Campus Network & Academy – View the Webinar

You are invited to learn about the new Caring Campus Network and the Caring Campus Academy as presented in this month’s webinar.

Caring Campus is a culture-changing effort embraced by senior leadership at college campuses across the U.S.. Results include increased student connectedness, and a sense of belonging. Students who feel more connected to their college show higher rates of retention, persistence and completion of their academic goals. Caring campus results also include improved staff job satisfaction, and better relations between staff, faculty, and leadership.

The video recording and PowerPoint of the November 9 webinar are now available to you. Click below to access the webinar.

Among IEBC’s goals as we increase our presence across the U.S. is connecting Caring Campus leaders around the country in the new Network to share and learn from each other about how colleges are implementing Caring Campus.
