Helping High-Achieving Students
Patrick Bahls, Honors Program
Brad Petitfils, Advising and Academic Success
Ensuring academic success for every member of a diverse student body is a challenge. While a good deal of attention is paid to the special needs of students who struggle academically, we often have a tendency to assume that our "high-achieving" students will do just fine without our help. In reality, our academically talented students may struggle with a variety of issues, some of which (e.g., anxiety) correlate with their scholarly performance. We will lead a discussion on ways we can all help these students, improving both their chances for success and our likelihood of retaining them.
Library Brown Bag Talks are free and open to UNC Asheville students, faculty, and staff as well as the Asheville community. Feel free to bring your lunch. Light refreshments are always served.
