Positioning Counselors to Be Game Changers in College Access
High school counselors play a big role in setting students’ sights on higher educational attainment, particularly for low-income students and students of color. Yet research has shown that counselors have been a mostly untapped, and insufficiently trained, resource in such efforts.
As states implement college- and career-ready standards and try to prepare more students for postsecondary education, some are looking to better position guidance-counseling programs to do much of the additional outreach. State-level training initiatives and university graduate programs are focusing attention on college advising in an effort to better equip these educators to help disadvantaged students pursue postsecondary options.
Underwriting for the content for this webinar has been provided by the Lumina Foundation.
Trish Hatch, associate professor & director, School Counseling Program, San Diego State University
