23rd April 2014

With a big push to graduate in four years, IU Southeast understands that first impressions are what matters most.

Three faculty members, Donna Dahlgren, professor of psychology, Dana Gohmann, social sciences advisor and Greg Roberts, arts and letters advisor will be presenting during the European First Year Experience conference.

Their research proposal is titled “Guiding Students to Plan Academically and Professionally: Navigating the Path to Degree Completion and Career Success,” the proposal discusses the development and content of the Pathways course.

The conference will take place Monday, June 9 through Wednesday, June 11 at Nottingham Trent University in Nottingham, England.

Gohmann said she is excited to travel abroad to see university practices outside of the United States.

“I’ve never been to an international conference before,” she said. “I hope to learn some new creative ways to engage our first year students.”
