National Symposium on Student Retention 2017

This year’s NSSR will take place on Monday, November 6 through Thursday, November 9 at the Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort in Destin, Florida. Program details will be posted here as we finalize information.

The symposium begins on Monday with full- and half-day pre-conference workshops, with the Welcome Reception afterwards. Tuesday’s activities start with a morning plenary session followed by a full day of concurrent sessions and roundtable discussions, which are new to the program this year. Wednesday begins with a plenary session and includes the poster session as well as additional concurrent sessions. Our Best Practices Awards will be presented during breakfast on Thursday, followed by our final concurrent sessions. Refreshments and several meals will be included throughout your time at the symposium.

Attendees will have many opportunities to hear presentations based on peer-reviewed papers, attend workshops providing hands-on opportunities, and network with a diverse group of colleagues from around the country.
