How to Find, Enroll, and Keep Adult Learners in STEM

May 16 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

The U.S. labor force could have a shortage of up to 3.5 million STEM workers by next year. Filling this gap not only demands enrolling and retaining adult learners, but addressing equity gaps in STEM. In this session, you’ll hear how CollegeAPP helps colleges recruit diverse adult learners into STEM programs. Persistence Plus will then share evidence-based strategies for supporting those adult learners to a STEM credential and a life-altering new career.
