Supporting the Inclusion of Nontraditional Students in the Classroom
Nationally, there is a large percentage of students who are “nontraditional” in one or more ways (e.g., older/returning, caregiver, veteran). On U-M’s Ann Arbor campus, these students have reported that they feel isolated amongst a largely traditional student body. To ground our discussion, this workshop will provide quantitative and qualitative data regarding how students on this campus identify as nontraditional. Participants will then have an opportunity to engage in discussions of case studies to deepen their understandings of the challenges faced by nontraditional students and consider strategies to support the inclusion of this diverse group of students in the classroom.
