Student Portraits Symposium set for May 18

UNT staff and faculty members and students are invited to the fifth annual Student Portraits Symposium from 8 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. May 18 at the Gateway Center. This years’ theme is “Pivotal Moments: Transitions in Education.”

“The goal of the day is for each attendee to gain information that helps foster understanding on how to better serve our students,” says Cassie Clough, data analyst in the Office of Institutional Research and Effectiveness, and co-chair for this year’s symposium.

The sessions and poster presentations will highlight research and assessment work being done across campus. Clough says the event will help peers and colleagues from different academic disciplines and administrative divisions see students in a context different from their day-to-day interactions. They may also learn about programs and resources. Clough said everyone should walk away from the event with information they can use to better help students succeed.
