Enabling student success in STEM disciplines

4-5 September 2019, New York, US

What is the THE  US Student Success Forum?


Join the Times Higher Education  US Student Success Forum 2019 in New York, where educational experts and university leaders will gather to discuss the best initiatives and newest ideas for improving student outcomes in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) disciplines.

Featuring some of the most respected and influential university presidents in the US, this event will reflect on how institutions can foster resilience in students as they grapple with the demands of college life, and which strategies are most effective in ensuring that undergraduates thrive during their studies. We will also examine how STEM-focused institutions can continue to teach broadly without diluting depth of learning and whether the liberal arts model remains the best way to educate STEM students.

Additionally, the forum will explore how faculty and institutions are adapting to meet the new demands of ‘Generation Z’ students and first-generation undergraduates studying STEM subjects.

This intensive day of debate and analysis will also offer fresh insight into which American institutions are delivering superb teaching and learning at the exclusive launch of the Wall Street Journal/ Times Higher Education US College Rankings 2019. Discover which institutions have risen up the rankings – and which have dropped down – and gain an understanding of the rankings data and methodology.

Held in partnership with New York Institute of Technology, this inspiring forum will provide insight and food for thought – plus an excellent opportunity to network with other leaders and influencers in US higher education.
