College Readiness and Life Skills: Moving Beyond Academics
Getting a college degree takes more than academic skill. Yet the push for college readiness in high school often revolves around taking rigorous courses and maintaining good grades. Successful students in college must also be able to live independently, manage their schedules, advocate for themselves, and bounce back from failure. Many students today lack these life skills, and that translates into lower college completion rates on many campuses.

This webinar takes place on Thursday, Jan. 31, 2013, 1 to 2 p.m. ET
