    The response to the COVID-19 pandemic has brought to light some of the challenges our campuses and offices weren’t ready to face or struggled to deal with quickly, but it’s also spotlighted success stories of coming together to support our faculty, staff and especially our students during this time of transition.  Sprinkled with some more general crisis best practices , we’ll take some time during this webinar to chat with a few schools about their own experiences with emergency plans and crisis communications, what they’ve learned so far through this current pandemic, and how they’re planning for the future.

    The National Center for Education Statistics stated in 2018 that about one-third of all college students are first-generation. This number is expected to increase as our society's demographics change and colleges attract "non-traditional" students, who hold multiple identities that intersect with their first-generation status. Whether we know it or not, a large portion of the students that we interact with are the first in their families to go to college and hopefully graduate with a degree. Based on their unique experiences and the challenges that first-gen students face, how we interact with them can have a huge impact on their academic, financial, and personal success. This webinar provides MASFAA members with some tips on how to enhance their interactions with first-gens to create more effective communication and a sense of community.

    Sinclair Community College’s Prison Education program began offering post-secondary opportunities for incarcerated students in 1984 and since that time has expanded from 2 to 16 prison sites. In 2012, Sinclair Community College served approximately 250 students and is now serving over 2,000 students annually. Of the 2,000 students being served annually approximately 35% are released each year with employment-based academic credentials in fields open to Returning Citizens.

    In response to the increased number of incarcerated students that are being served and subsequently released, Sinclair Community College launched the Returning Citizen Initiative in 2017 to ensure that reentry students have an identified support network for both reentry and academic needs. This goal is accomplished through the following services: outreach, pre-release preparation, and post-release support.

    Outreach is accomplished by establishing contact, creating partnerships and raising awareness in the prison sites, on campus, and in the community. Pre-release preparation provides a support network and identifies reentry and academic resources that results in a comprehensive reentry plan prior to release. Post-release support focuses on maintaining a strong network, reinforcing previously established reentry goals and encouraging Returning Citizens throughout every step of their journey. Since 2017, over 800 Returning Citizens have been served through the Returning Citizen Initiative.

    In this webinar, we will discuss post-secondary educational options for incarcerated students, the pathway to reentry prior to release, and tools, information, and strategies to ensure Returning Citizens successfully reenter society.
