In an era of data analytics and disruptive innovations, what’s really needed are theory-based models for framing college student success as a function of key factors and experiences. Prior research has shown the limits of traditional “box and arrow” models that oversimplify the nuances of student lives. Since 2008, Dr. Strayhorn has been studying sense of belonging in college contexts and posited his model for student success. In this keynote, he will (re)present the model, based on his newest 2018 book, frame belonging as an innovative, disruptive innovation that provides evidence-based strategies for easing student adjustment, nurturing their efficacy, and ensuring their success in 2- and 4-year colleges. Come to learn; leave inspired and ready to move the needle!
