Event description
We hand out free curricula, and we offer free workshops too!
ECMC is pleased to provide nationally recognized curricula and facilitated trainings targeting student success in higher education. “PERSIST” was created to provide tools to help educators increase the success rates of those students who are the most at risk for dropping out: first-in-the-family college students, those from low-income families, commuter students, and nontraditional age students.
Clearly, access to higher education alone is not enough to provide educational opportunity to all when low-income, first-generation college-going students are the least likely to graduate. Success in higher education is an issue for all students. Currently, only 29 percent of all first-time postsecondary students at two-year institutions and 59 percent of those at four-year institutions graduate within six years. However, the graduation rates are even worse for low-income, first-in-the-family college- students. Low-income students are less than half as likely to earn a bachelor’s degree as higher-income students.

Facilitation by professional trainers
Highly interactive training environment
Printed and digital editions of the curricula for each participant
Innovative applications for curricula implementation
Experiential, game-based techniques for teaching fundamentals

 The “PERSIST” curricula is a toolkit for higher education professionals to help at-risk students navigate the varied aspects of the college experience:

Evaluate institutional retention performance
Assess academic planning and classroom engagement practices
