The physical isolation and challenges brought about by the pandemic have had a negative impact on the motivation and engagement of both students and faculty. This session will use Tinto's (1998) theory of college retention to understand how to counteract the consequences of the pandemic using research-based practices. Participants will leave with practices designed to increase self-efficacy, a sense of belonging, and relevance for both students and faculty. The Director of the Center of Faculty Development at the University of Southern Mississippi will share how they incorporate these practices to support faculty.
