Topics will include holistic models of student support, the student lifecycle from interested prospective students to alumni, the increasing diversity of students, the wide range of possible student services and their connections to the teaching and learning mission of campus. Particular attention will be paid to the unique needs of students, including Aboriginal and international students, and students with exceptionalities or health challenges.
