Getting to Know the 21st Century Student: The Adult Learner

Richard Gonzalez, USHE

Literature continues to tell us that adult learners or non-traditional students (as many call us) learn differently. Further, it takes more than a marketing campaign to get us to seek higher education and persist to a degree. We learn differently. We have different motivations and needs. There are close to 300,000 people in Utah with some college but no degree. There are another 330,000 Utahans that hold a HS diploma or GED. There adult prospects compose a large market that our higher education institutions cannot afford to ignore. Let us get to know them and do something about it. Join me to learn what drives this much needed population, what is the literature telling us, and what you can do right now to attract more adult learners to your institution.

You Matter: Stress Management and Self-care

LuAnn Helms

Individuals in helping professions often neglect self-care. Dr. LuAnn Helms will discuss stress management, self-care, and why, if we value helping others, we have an obligation to them to take care of ourselves. Participants will also have an opportunity to gather self-care ideas from Dr. Helms and from each other, and to develop personal wellness goals.
