The 7 Habits of Highly Effective College Students

March 23 @ 1:00 pm EST

College is a time of transition and increased responsibility.  In many ways, college and stress go hand in hand. But for some, everyday stress transitions into major mental health issues like anxiety, depression, and even suicidal thoughts. Today, 73% of university presidents rank student mental health as their most pressing issue (Deloitte). Mental illness is the leading cause of discontinuous enrollment (especially when paired with substance abuse). Essentially, the biggest factor in your institution’s retention rate may be the mental health of your students.

How can you address these concerns with a scalable solution? Join New York Times bestselling author, Sean Covey to learn how colleges and universities can use the 7 Habits to:

• Enhance student engagement.
• Improve persistence.
• Strengthen student learning.
• Increase retention and completion rates.

Teaching Career Readiness Skills to College Students

April Grudi from Indiana University
50-Minute Presentation

It's no secret that career readiness skills are crucial for building strong relationships, developing abilities for becoming a high-performing, productive employee, and, ultimately, for working with teams, and leading others. Yet, global studies and surveys consistently reveal that university graduates do not have these requisite skills when entering the workforce—and this lack of in-demand workforce skills is growing.

While most institutions offer a first-year student success course or co-curricular programs that may teach these skills, the instruction is often inadequate to help students confidently learn and apply them later in the workplace. And at the classroom level, most professors do not have the time or the resources to build a robust curriculum on their own to teach these skills. 

Hear from April Grudi of Indiana University, as she presents her approach to successfully addressing the career readiness gap by integrating FranklinCovey course content in the classroom.

Trust and Inpire Leaders in Higher Education

Presented by:
Stephen M. R. Covey

We have a leadership crisis in higher education today, where even though our world has changed drastically, our leadership style has not. Most institutions still operate from a model of “command and control,” focusing on hierarchies and compliance from people. But because of the changing nature of the world, the workforce, work itself, and the choices we have for where and how to work and live, this way of leading is drastically outdated.
