Ethnic Studies Professor Says Research Will Help Students of Color
"Research shows that many students of color have a higher attrition rate, but it appears that students involved in an intensive first year program are more likely to be successful in their second year," said Dr. Leon. "Ethnic Studies is participating to share our success with our freshman seminar course (Ethnic Studies 21) and to learn from experts around the state."
Indeed Sacramento State is the first campus to host a learning community conference in Northern California, a conference built upon the work of the California Learning Communities Consortium (CLCC). In addition to statewide faculty, staff and department directors, renowned speaker Dr. Betsy Barefoot, the Co-Director for the Policy Center on the First Year of College, will speak. In addition to Dr. Barefoot's speech participants can engage in over 31 workshops on issues of technology, assessment, student engagement, diversity, freshman seminar pedagogy, and student excellence.
