Times Higher Education will host an event centred on the challenges and opportunities for US universities in engaging and supporting students in New York next month.
The THE Student Success Forum, in partnership with New York University, will take place on 5 and 6 September and hear from senior US university leaders who have succeeded in attaining top student outcomes.
The event will also feature the launch of the third annual Wall Street Journal/THE US College Rankings, which focuses primarily on what institutions offer students, rather than research performance. There will be an exclusive data masterclass revealing key insights from the ranking.
Daniel Calto, director of solution services at Elsevier, will deliver a speech on partnering with technology to track student success, which will be followed by a panel exploring how new technology is being used to better manage and measure the student experience, with Andrew T. Campbell, professor of computer science at Dartmouth College; Timothy Renick, senior vice-president for student success and professor of religious studies at Georgia State University; and June Pierce Youatt, provost and executive vice-president for academic affairs at Michigan State University.
Meanwhile, Eric Hoekstra, president of Dordt College; Ralph Wilcox, provost and executive vice-president at the University of South Florida; and Mark Wrighton, chancellor of Washington University in St Louis, will discuss the best institutional strategies for successful student engagement and explore how partnerships can support the student experience.
