St. Louis Graduates Professional Development Institute: Helping Students Identify Best Fit Colleges - Social/Emotional/Cultural Considerations
Identifying a “best fit” college requires considering multiple factors – abilities, interests, social supports, finances, cultural identity, and life situation. In this workshop, counselors will learn to use the My Fit Checklist tool to guide students in identifying colleges that meet their needs across multiple factors. Counselors will walk away with an understanding of the brain science behind the social/emotional development of students, and a practical tool to use in advising students as they identify the fit factors of greatest importance to their individual needs. Guest presenters, including current college students, will provide depth of understanding around developmental supports available on campus and in the community for specific student needs, including learning disabilities, parenting, homelessness, and mental health. This session will culminate with an interactive discussion around building a community of cultural understanding and respect based on a model in place in Springfield, Missouri.
